Aluminum Welding Question

Aluminum Welding Question

Aluminum Welding Question

I have a piece of round stock 6061 T6 Aluminum, 3/8" in diameter.  I am going to cut the round stock into inch long segments at a 45 deg. angle.  I want to weld the inch long segments along the 45 cuts such that the two pieces form an "L".

What type of geometry weld should I use?



RE: Aluminum Welding Question

What weld technique are you using?

A bevel weld will give you better penetration, try it with ER4043 rod.

RE: Aluminum Welding Question

I would bevel the outside corners and put a fillet weld on the inside.  Weld the outside first.  Using this technique you can grind to standard size.
