Dissimilar Metal Welding of Austenite Stainless Steel and Carbon Steel Using Nd:YAG Laser a Continuous Wave
Dissimilar metal welding (DMW) are used widely in various industrial applications due to the practical importance from the technical and economic aspect. However, DMW have several fabricative and metallurgical drawbacks that can often lead to in-service failures. For example, the most pronounced fabrication faults are hot cracks. Recently, DMW have used the several of heat source to decrease such as faults. Laser welding process has, in recent years, attracted more attention due to its special features: a small heat-affected zone and narrow weld bead due to the low heat input; welding at high speed; welding can be carried out in areas of difficult access; contactless energy transfer; welding in an exact and reproducible manner; possibilities for automation and robotization, and welding performed in various atmospheres. In this paper, the weldability on dissimilar metal welding of austenite stainless steel and carbon steel using Nd:YAG laser with a continuous wave was experimentally investigated.
