Q: We currently weld steel assemblies and have been asked to investigate the feasibility of welding aluminum. I have heard this will require more welding current. What about weld time and force requirements? Can you explain the reasoning behind these requirements?SEE MORE
Welding Qualification Program of GMAAM Test Plates to Wrought Material
We are seeing an increasing number of large components made entirely from weld metal. The additive manufacturing (AM) process might be called weld metal additive, direct energy deposition (DED), or listed by the deposition process used; for example, wire-arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) or gas metal arc additive manufacturing (GMAAM).SEE MORE
Unleashing the Potential of Welding in Additive Manufacturing by Embracing AI
Welcome to the forefront of welding innovation, where artificial intelligence (AI) meets additive manufacturing (AM). Dive into the groundbreaking potential of machine learning (ML) in the field of welding, specifically in the context of wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM), a technique that combines welding and 3D printing, utilizing an electric arc to deposit molten metal wire layer by layer to create complex 3D structures.SEE MORE
