RESISTANCE SPOT WELDING CHARACTERIZATION OF PRESS HARDENED STEEL

Abbade, L.; Lara, J. A. C.; Couto, C. P.; Gonsalez, B.; Colosio, M. A.; Rossi, J. L.;

Artigo Completo:

In the automotive industry the resistance spot welding (RSW) is one of the most used processes for joining steel sheets, being of fundamental importance the quality assurance of this process. In this work, 22MnB5 steel sheets for the hot stamping process, also known as PHS (Press Hardening Steel), were joined by the technique of resistance spot welding, so that the welding parameters were changed 16 times for the evaluation of the influence of these parameters on the mechanical properties. By conducting ultrasonic, tensile and hardness test, followed by metallography, it was possible to identify the characteristics of the spot weld effect on the material. The results of the tests performed in this work confirmed the difference in mechanical strength of the thermal zone (ZTA) in relation to the molten zone (ZF). For a certain set of the parameters it was shown a decrease in the strength of the ZTA and increasing to the weld point, which is demonstrated in the microstructural analysis and thus justifies the detachment of the weld button of the base material during tensile testing, i.e., there was a higher strength in the welded area.
