Small-Scale Resistance Spot Welding of Zr Based Glassy Alloys
Resistance microwelding is an important joining process used in the fabrication of miniature instruments. The small-scale resistance spot weldability of Zr based glassy thin sheet alloys was investigated. Metallic glass sheets were successfully welded and amorphous structure was maintained in both weld nugget and heat affected zone. Joint strength that is evaluated by shear breaking force increased as the welding current increased, resulting from nugget growth. Fractured surface showed typical vein pattern.
