Steel-to-Aluminum Joining by Control of Interface Microstructures - Laser-Roll Bonding and Magnetic Pulse Welding -
Laser-roll bonding and magnetic pulse welding are two relatively new processes that greatly minimize problems of metallurgical incompatibilities between dissimilar metals and alloys. These two processes, though technologically apart and invented for components with distinct geometries, utilize to various extents high pressures to facilitate rapid and localized interfacial heating and create reliable joints. In this paper, relations between process parameters, microstructures, and properties are discussed for aluminum-to-steel joints made by laser-roll bonding and magnetic pulse welding.
