A study was undertaken to analyze metal inert gas (MIG) welding of aluminum plates keeping in mind the potential capabilities of MIG welding process and selecting aluminum as base metal due to its increased demand in aerospace and automotive industries. Primary welding parameters, viz. welding current, arc voltage, welding speed, were identified and investigations were carried out to study their effect on the tensile strength and yield strength of the weldments by using 2 3 factorial design. A brief introduction to MIG welding processes is included, along with the literature review of research in the field of MIG welding of aluminum.
