Summary
The A6N01 Al alloy was welded using pulsed MIG welding (P-MIG) in a test and the microstructure and mechanical properties of the joints were investigated. The results of the experimentation show that the microstructure of the welding metal is as-cast microstructure, and the microstructure of the base metal is isometric crystal. There is a narrow fusion zone near the edge of the weld seam, which consists of fine columnar grains. The micro-hardness at the centre of the welded metal is lowest in the joint. The tensile strength of the welded joint is 198MPa and the percentage elongation after fracture is 7%. The zone of fracture is located in the welding metal.
