Sažetak

The work was carried out as part of a project to improve the corrosion resistance of welded joints. The optimal selection of input parameters reduces the consumption of welded material as well as the negative impact on the environment. The samples were welded by electrical resistance welding, more precisely by cross-wire welding. Electric resistance welding is a process for welding with electricity in which of high electrical resistance is used to generate heat at the contact point of the welded parts. Steel wire S235 with a diameter of 4 and 3 mm was used. The article shows the creation of the model to predict the percentage of setdown and weld strength as a function of the input parameters, welding current and welding time. The first task was to create a Design of experiments in which the process parameters or the range of input parameters are determined. The Design of the experiments was created for both wire diameters. This covers the range of parameters with which a welded joint of wires can be realised. A statistical analysis of the process follows, where it was found that for 4 and 3 mm diameter wires the percentage setdown increases with increasing welding current and time. An increase in strength as a function of welding current and welding time is also observed, but the results overlap in most cases and the range of their values is greater than that of setdown. The appearance of the weld was analysed for each sample. The visual inspection revealed seven categories of welds, which were divided into two groups, i.e. good and poor welds. All results were listed in a table with the percentage of expectation for a particular category of weld appearance. Based on the analysis, a model for determining the welding result parameters depending on the specified input parameters was developed, which can be used in practise to support the management of the electric resistance welding process.
