This project expanded upon efforts accomplished in a previous project – Tandem Twin Pulsed GMAW in Dual Head, Double Sided Fillet Welds for Panel Stiffeners with Weldable Primer – to further refine and optimize the Tandem Gas Shielded Processes. The project team developed procedures for welding 6mm and 12mm steel and illustrated the performance improvement over the Submerged Arc Welding process in the areas of distortion, heat deposition and weld speed.
