Investigation of Imperfections Formed at the Ultrasonic Welding of Copper Sheets

Open access


Ultrasonic welding is a very useful and simple welding process. It is suitable for establishing a joint between thin sheets and dissimilar metals with short preparation and finish work time [1]. Some welding defects were detected due to less than optimal ultrasonic welding parameters. These defects were ruptures, surface colour change and unacceptable deformations. This article aims to identify these failures and their causes.
