This work studies the improved hybrid Capacitor Discharge Welding process (CDW), based on projection welding principles applied to stainless steel AISI 304. The innovative idea is to modify the igniting points geometry on the section to be welded and optimize the weld characteristics in order to guide the local fusion processes more uniformly on the whole area and enhance the weld properties. Eight different profile geometries for the contact surfaces have been realized in order to evaluate the geometry influence on joints quality and according to process parameters influence. The mechanical behavior of the welds has been verified with static characterization at room temperature and fatigue tests for welded samples with the better observed microstructure.

Abstract

This work studies the improved hybrid Capacitor Discharge Welding process (CDW), based on projection welding principles applied to stainless steel AISI 304. The innovative idea is to modify the igniting points geometry on the section to be welded and optimize the weld characteristics in order to guide the local fusion processes more uniformly on the whole area and enhance the weld properties. Eight different profile geometries for the contact surfaces have been realized in order to evaluate the geometry influence on joints quality and according to process parameters influence. The mechanical behavior of the welds has been verified with static characterization at room temperature and fatigue tests for welded samples with the better observed microstructure.
