In submerged arc welding, the arc is struck between:

  1. Consumable coated electrode and work piece
  2. Non-consumable electrode and work piece
  3. Consumable bare electrode and work piece
  4. Tungsten electrodes and work piece

Answer (Detailed Solution Below)

Option 3 : Consumable bare electrode and work piece

Explanation:

Submerged arc welding:

  • Submerged arc welding is an arc welding process in which heat is generated by an arc which is produced betweenbare consumable electrode wire and the work-piece.
  • The arc and the weld zone are completely covered under a blanket of granular, fusible flux which melts and provides protection to the weld pool from the atmospheric gases.
  • The molten flux surrounds the arc thus protecting arc from the atmospheric gases.
  • The molten flux flows down continuously and fresh flux melts around the arc.
  • The molten flux reacts with the molten metal forming slag and improves its properties and later floats on the molten/solidifying metal to protect it from atmospheric gas contamination and retards cooling rate.
  • A process of submerged arc welding is illustrated in Figure.

The amperage used in arc welding depends upon

  1. work thickness
  2. electrode rod thickness
  3. arc gap
  4. other considerations

Answer (Detailed Solution Below)

Option 2 : electrode rod thickness

Explanation:

Three units are used to describe any arc welding process. They are voltage (V), amperage (A), and wattage (W).

Voltage:

  • Voltage is the measurement of electrical pressure.
  • Voltage control the maximum gap the electron can jump to form an arc.
  • Welding voltage is associated with welding temperature.

Amperage:

  • It is the measurement of the total number of electrons flowing.
  • Amperage control the size of the arc.
  • The higher the amperage setting, the higher the heat produced by the welding arc, and the lower the amperage setting the lower the heat produced.
  • Each diameter of the electrode has a recommended minimum and maximum amperage range and therefore a recommended heat range.Amperage is associated with the welding heat.

Wattage:

  • It is the measurement of the amount of electrical energy or power in the arc i.e how much heat and temperature an arc produces.

Which of the following arc welding methods is used for thin sheets as well as in difficult-to access positions?

  1. Short arc welding
  2. Long arc welding
  3. Spray arc welding
  4. Pulsed arc welding

Answer (Detailed Solution Below)

Option 1 : Short arc welding

Explanation:

Welding technology

  • The stability of a DC arc with a consumable electrode depends largely on how the molten metal is transferred in the arc.
  • One can be distinguished essentially between two different types of arcs, depending on material transport.
    1. Spray arc
    2. Short arc

Short arc welding

  • The heat input fromShort arc welding is low, which makes the process suitable for welding in thinner materials.
  • The drops from the electrode dip into the weld pool.
  • This can be repeated up to 200 times per sec.
  • If the short circuit current is too high, it has a considerable effect on the pinch-off forces, causing weld spatter.
  • Some means of limiting the short-circuit current must therefore be provided in the power unit, e.g. through the use of an inductor coil.
  • It is not easy, withShort arc welding, to achieve a completely stable arc.
  • The objective is to achieve a consistent, high short-circuiting frequency, resulting in small droplets being transferred to the workpiece and spatter droplets being so fine that they do not adhere to the workpiece.

2. MIG welding

3. Laser beam welding

4. Submerged arc welding

  1. 1-4-2-3
  2. 3-4-2-1
  3. 4-3-2-1
  4. 3-2-4-1

Answer (Detailed Solution Below)

Option 4 : 3-2-4-1

Heat Affected Zone (HAZ):

  • The area of the base material of metal which is affected by the heat of the welding process. Melting of the base material does not occur here only microstructure is changed.
  • Heat affected zone may range from small to large depending on the rate of heat input. A process with low rates of heat input will result in a large HAZ.
  • The size of HAZ also increases as the speed of the welding process decreases.

\({\rm{Size\;of\;HAZ}}\; \propto \frac{1}{{speed\;of\;welding}}\)

So, order of welding processes in increasing speed is

Arc welding → Submerged Arc welding → MIG welding → Laser Beam welding

Two stainless steel foils of 0.1 mm thickness are to be joined. Which of the following processes would be best suited:

  1. Gas welding
  2. TIG welding
  3. MIG welding
  4. Plasma arc welding

Answer (Detailed Solution Below)

Option 4 : Plasma arc welding

Explanation:

Plasma Arc Welding:

  • Plasma Arc Welding is the advanced version of TIG welding. In Plasma Arc Welding process the arc is being created between tungsten electrode and the work piece. Plasma is the state of the gas when the gas is heated to high temperature and changes into positive ions, neutral atoms and negative electrons.
  • The plasma is allowed to pass through a very constricted nozzle to get a very high velocity of plasma.
  • The nozzle constrict the plasma and arc, thus constriction of arc will result into high temperature of the plasma. Thus high velocity and high temperature (30000°C) results into rapid melting of base metal.
  • The PAW is used for welding very thin foils due to very less heat affected area and intense heat generation.
  • The heat affected region in PAW is less than GTAW process, thus less amount of heat lost and high efficiency as compared to GTAW.
  • The energy density in PAW is greater than GTAW process. This result in deeper penetration in base metal and even thicker metal can be melted rapidly.
  • PAW is used in welding stainless steel, titanium, metals having very high melting points and super alloys. Also, in aeronautical industry, precision instrument industry and jet engine manufacturing.

Gas Welding:

(Video) SAIL OCTT Mechanical Expected/Model Questions Welding (MCQs)||Production Engineering||

  • In gas welding Heat source is the flame produced by the combustion of fuel gas and oxygen. Acetylene (C2H2) is the principal fuel gas employed in this welding. No pressure is involved in this welding. Filler metal can be added in the form of a wire or rod.
  • The Gas welding process uses heat from exothermic chemical reactions.
  • Gas welding is used for joining ferrous and non-ferrous metals, e.g.,carbon steels, alloy steels, cast iron, aluminium, copper, etc.
  • Gas welding is used in automotive and Aircraft industries, sheet metal fabricating plants, etc.

TIG Welding:

  • Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG)or Gas Tungsten Arc (GTA) welding is the arc welding process in which arc is generated between non-consumable tungsten electrode and work piece.
  • The tungsten electrode and the weld pool are shielded by aninert gas normally argon and helium.
  • TIG welding is used for welding thin materials up to a thickness of 5 mm, without using filler material.
  • TIGwelds are stronger, more ductile and more corrosion resistant than welds made with ordinary shield arc welding.
  • There is little weld metal splatter or weld sparks that damages the surface of the base metal as in ordinary shield arc welding.

MIG Welding:

  • In this process the arc is formed between a continuous, automatically fed,metallic consumable electrodeand welding job in an atmosphere of inert gas, and hence this is called metal inert gas arc welding (MIG) process.
  • In MIG welding the consumable electrode is supplied in the form of a spool wire.
  • In MIG welding the thickness of base metal is limited to 40 mm.
  • It provides higher deposition rate. It is faster than shielded metal arc welding due to continuous feeding of filler metal.
  • There is no slag formation and deeper penetration is possible.
  • Practically all commercially available metals can be welded by this method.
