Abstract

Most magnesium alloys can be joined by gas-tungsten arc welding (GTAW) and gas-metal arc welding (GMAW). This article describes relative weldability ratings and provides information on joint design and surface preparation and the use of filler metals and shielding gases suitable to arc welding of magnesium alloys. The article describes the repair welding of castings, with examples. It concludes with a discussion on heat treatment of castings after welding.
