Taguchi Method for 304 Stainless Steel Nd-YAG Laser Beam Welding
This study uses the relative tensile strength of weld and base metal as a quality factor for the Taguchi analysis in laser beam welding of stainless steel. The result shows that the optimum process parameters can be obtained reasonably even in the case of the base metals have a larger property variation or the operation setup is not controlled well properly.
