New Paper – Pulsed Gas Metal Arc Welding of Copper-nickel Pipe Joints

By Nick Kapustka on Thursday, June 22nd, 2017 in Advanced Manufacturing, Arc Welding, Defense, EWI – Company. No Comments

Copper-nickel alloys are often used in shipbuilding for applications such as tanks, seawater and freshwater piping, and numerous other structures. Copper-nickel pipe joints are typically welded with manual gas tungsten arc welding; however, inherently slow travel speeds and low deposition rates impede productivity. The implementation of pulsed gas metal arc welding (GMAW-P) could yield significantRead more
