Title : Dissimilar metal welding using Shielded metal arc welding : A Review

Abstract :

One of the fabrication technique is welding. Based on Material, welding can be divided into welding the same Material (similar welding) and welding with different materials (dissimilar welding). Based on the joining process, welding can be divided into arc welding with wrapped electrodes (SMAW), submerged arc welding (SAW), gas arc welding (GMAW), tungsten arc welding (GTAW) and others. This study presents a review of dissimilar welding with the Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) process. Dissimilar welding has been applied in various industries such as automotive, power plant, construction, etc. SMAW Method is one of the methods for dissimilar welding is used for this paper. SMAW is a procedure that uses an arc to accomplish the weld between a covered electrode and a weld pool. This paper aims to contribute and improve the basic theory of dissimilar welding, especially the SMAW method. This paper also explains the SMAW welding process, the equipment used, and the Material and electrodes used. As a result, this review showed the SMAW process capable of welding dissimilar Material due to easy and simple equipment. It can be used for all metal combinations on dissimilar welding likely low carbon steel and stainless steel, or stainless steel and stainless steel, etc. Weld quality can be performed with a destructive test (hardness, bending, and tension test), Microstructure (SEM and EDS), and non-destructive test (Magnetic particle, radiography, ultrasonic test). Furthermore, the effect of dissimilar welding with the SMAW process on microstructure and mechanical properties will be investigated
