21. Process Sensitivity of GMAW: Aluminum vs. Steel
Timothy P Quinn
A heat-transfer model of the melting electrode in gas metal are welding (GMAW) was used to compare the relative sensitivity of the process when welding with aluminum electrodes compared to that of steel electrodes. The aluminum model was verified wi ...
22. Contact Tube Temperature During GMAW
G Adam, Thomas A. (Thomas A.) Siewert, Timothy P Quinn, D P Vigliotti
The rate of heating and the maximum temperature reached by the contact tube during gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is quantified. We studied the effect of changes in the contact-tube-to-work distance (CTWD), voltage, welding wire feed speed, gas flow r ...
23. A Welding Cell With Its Own Web Site
Timothy P Quinn
Communications technology is allowing welding engineers to interact in the operation of a welding cell from a distance, as if they were physically present. The remote engineer can look at the weld, watch the robot motion, read front panel displays a ...
24. A Welding Cell That Supports Remote Collaboration
James D Gilsinn, William G Rippey, Joseph A Falco, Timothy P Quinn, Robert Russell, Keith A Stouffer
Discrete part manufacturers using robotic arc welding cells often have several more
geographically distributed plants than welding experts. This ratio often leads to costly downtimes
due to both logistic and communication deficiencies between weld ...
25. Through-the-Arc Detection of Weld Defects in Pulsed GTAW
Timothy P Quinn, D C Oakley
A through-the-arc sensing system was used to detect defects in the welding of thin-walled stainless-steel tubing. It measures the process current and voltage and passes the resulting signals through a signal processing algorithm. The arc condition ...
