Resistance Spot Welding between Titanium and Stainless Steel with an Aluminum Alloy Insert
The resistance spot welding between commercially pure titanium and stainless steel was achieved using an aluminum alloy insert. The interfacial microstructure and mechanical properties of the joint were investigated. The maximum tensile shear load of 5.38 kN was obtained from the Ti/SUS304 joint welded at the welding current of 10 KA. The results reveal that the property of the Ti/SUS304 joint can be improved by using an aluminum alloy insert between Ti and SUS304 sheet.
