Effect of Weld Tip Geometry on Ultrasonic Welding of Aluminum Alloy

Abstract:

Article Preview

Authors ultrasonically welded A6061 aluminum alloy sheet using two types of weld tips with the different contact face geometry, and investigated the effect of the weld tip geometry on the performance and the interface structure of welds. One type of tip has a cylindrical contact face without knurl, which is called C-tip in this study. The other type of tip has flat contact face with knurl, which is called K-tip in this study. The strength of the joints welded using C-tip was higher than that welded using K-tip and the C-tip could stably produce the higher strength joint.
