Optimal Tensile Strength by Submerged Arc Welding
To contend the market in the existent state, cost efficacy is vastly desired. For that, productivity improvement technique is among the many ways . Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) is used as a productivity improvement method in the present paper where manufacturing process of fabricated parts are not only curtail by tumbling the process time, moreover by strengthening the weld quality too. Efforts are initiated to improve the productivity of the fabrication department of one of the industrial set up under study is taken by achieving the tensile strength of the weld bead in single pass only. In this process, conventional flux is supplemented by alloying in variations to achieve the optimal tensile strength, which are further verified by one of the optimisation method. The effect of input parameters are analysed over the output response and observed that one parameter has more substantial effect on the tensile strength than the other remaining parameters.
