Optimization of welding modes for high-strength low-alloy domex 700 steel

Abstract

The microstructure and hardness of the weld joints of DOMEX 700 steel were investigated. As a result, the optimization of the parameters of robotic arc welding in the environment of protective gases was carried out taking into account the size of the energy per unit length. The optimum modes of welding were determined. The size of the deterioration area, where there is a decrease in hardness in comparison with the main metal, for a thickness of 6 mm is 2.36 mm, and for a thickness of 3 mm is 1.51 mm. The parameters of the robotic welding process in the arc mode in the environment of protective gases for the investigated thicknesses of the DOMEX 700 steel were recommended. As a result, the energy-saving conditions for welding performing were achieved ensuring the required technological strength.
