Abstract

This article describes the fundamental theory of magnetic pulse welding (MPW). It reviews the equipment used for MPW, namely, work coil, capacitor bank, high-voltage power supply, high-voltage switches, and field shapers. The article discusses the MPW process and explains the critical parameters needed to obtain acceptable welds. Applications and safety guidelines of the MPW are also presented.
