Arc Sensing for Defects in Constant-Voltage Gas Metal Arc Welding

Abstract

A method for detecting flaws in automatic, constant-voltage gas metal arc welding using the process current and voltage signals was developed. Seven algorithms process the current and voltage signals to give quality parameters. A defect-detection algorithm processes the quality parameters and flags welds that are different from a baseline. The baseline is… (More)
