Gas metal arc welding (AC-GMAW) combines

Alternating Metal Arc Welding (AC-GMAW) combines the stability of the DCEP arc  with  the high melting rate of the DCEN region to produce a quality weld. The cleaning action of CA helps  reduce sooty black  oxide particles on the surface of welded aluminum alloys. AC-GMAW is  known for its improved deformation control, reduced heat input,  higher melt rate of feed wire at a given power level, and reduced shear.

The process can put more filler wire into space with  minimal  heat during the EN portion because the flow of electrons  melts the wire more than  the base metal. 

 Overcoming the problem of changing from the positive electrode  (EP) to the negative electrode  (EN) was a major challenge in the early stages of development.When the AC voltage crosses through 0, the plasma arc actually collapses and needs to be restored. Droplet formation and transfer is also difficult to achieve in the EN part of the cycle. However, with the advent of high speed circuits and inverter technology, these problems have been solved. In the EN range, the droplet grows faster  due to the high melting rate of the process; However, in the EP region, the arc is maintained and  prepared for droplet 

 detachment, which occurs in the high EP region. When switching the mode from DCEP to DCEN, the arc coverage angle and  current flow direction change with each pulse.Power supplies were able to leverage the DCEP and DCEN regions to overcome these issues, leading to a process called AC GMAW. The stability of the arc in the DCEP zones is combined with the  high melting rate of the DCEN zones to avoid burning off.

To overcome the adverse effects of welding thin sheet metal using the P-GMAW method, Jaskulski et al. It demonstrated the capabilities of AC GMAW power supplies  developed by implementing a new synergistic program in an inverter power source  to achieve optimal AC GMAW process control  for  steel and aluminum alloys. COWARDLY. 1.32 shows a comparison of P-GMAW and AC-GMAW current waveforms  in steel and aluminum.The current pulse is separated from the EN base zone and the EN tip zone, with the EN base zone helping to maintain the arc and the EN tip zone helping to increase the  melting speed of the wire. In aluminum welding, using a simpler conventional waveform resulted in  a stable arc up to 30% EN. Kah et al. Demonstrated the use of an AC GMAW pulse with an EN factor greater than 30% when welding steel. Ueyama et al.It was recommended to apply a small amount of heat  to the part, but with the DCEN bias in the pulse you get a higher melt rate, resulting in less penetration and gap bridging ability. As a result, the AC-GMAW process  successfully minimizes the amount of material deposited and shortens the time for its deposition. This is made possible by better dilution control and increased  deposition rates in the process.
