Newport News Shipbuilding
NSRP ASE Investment: $149K
This project evaluated five different process improvements for higher deposition, out of position, Mechanized GMAW-Pulse welding for structural applications. Out of position welding mostly pertains to the vertical and overhead positions. This work identified the most effective improvement to the subject welding process in those positions. The goal of this project was to increase the travel speed by increasing the deposition rate while keeping heat input as a constant.
