In the present investigation, an attempt has been made to weld the precipitation hardened Nickel based super alloy Inconel 718 and austenitic stainless steel AISI 316L using Continuous Current Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (CCGTAW) and Pulsed Current Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (PCGTAW) process employing ER2553 and ERNiCu-7 fillers. Microstructure examination using optical and SEM analysis clearly witnessed the formation of unmixed zone at the Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) of Inconel 718 for all the joints. The studies showed the absence of deleterious phases in the CCGTA and PCGTA weldments employing ERNiCu-7. Tensile studies corroborated that the fracture occurred at the parent metal of AISI 316L in all the cases. It was inferred from the present study that PCGTA weldments employing ERNiCu-7 exhibited better metallurgical and mechanical properties. This study articulated the effect of filler metals on the structure-property relationships of the weldments. Â© 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
