1. Introduction to double pulse welding

Double pulse welding is an advanced welding technology that uses two different current pulses to control the welding process to achieve more precise and controllable welding results. This technology is usually used to weld materials that require high strength and high quality, such as aluminum alloys, stainless steel, etc.

In double pulse welding, there is usually a main pulse and a secondary pulse. The main pulse is used to melt the welding material, and its energy is greater than the auxiliary pulse, thereby ensuring that the welding area is fully melted. The auxiliary pulse helps control the formation and transmission of droplets. By adjusting the parameters of the auxiliary pulse, the size, shape and transmission speed of the droplets can be affected, thereby affecting the formation of the weld.

2. Advantages of double pulse weld technology

(1) Precise heat control: Double pulse welding technology allows welders to more accurately adjust the heat input during the welding process. By controlling the parameters of the main and auxiliary pulses, such as current, frequency and width, the temperature distribution in the welding area can be precisely controlled. This precise thermal control helps reduce welding distortion and residual stress, improving the quality and stability of welded joints.

(2) Reduce welding defects: Double pulse welding technology helps reduce common defects during the welding process, such as pores, cracks and inclusions. By precisely controlling the heat input and droplet transfer during the welding process, more uniform and stable weld formation can be achieved, the occurrence of defects can be reduced, and the quality and reliability of welded joints can be improved.

(3) Wide range of applications: Double pulse technology is suitable for various types and thicknesses of metal materials, including aluminum alloys, stainless steel, nickel-based alloys, etc. Especially when welding highly reactive materials, double pulse welding technology can give full play to its advantages and achieve more stable and high-quality welding.

(4) Reduce spatter rate: Through the control of auxiliary pulses, double-pulse welding technology can effectively reduce spatter during the welding process. The auxiliary pulse helps control the formation and transmission of droplets, reduces the splashing and sputtering of droplets, and improves the stability and safety of the welding process.

(5) Improve production efficiency: Because double pulse welding technology can achieve more stable and high-quality welding, it can improve production efficiency. Reducing welding defects and the need for rework reduces scrap rates while improving welding speed and welding quality, thereby reducing production costs.

3. Disadvantages of double pulse welding technology

(1) Complex parameter settings and adjustments: Double-pulse welding technology involves the precise adjustment of multiple parameters, such as the current, frequency, width, etc. of the main pulse and auxiliary pulse. The setting of these parameters requires in-depth theoretical knowledge and rich practical experience, and welding operators must understand how these parameters affect the welding process and welding quality. Therefore, the threshold for learning and mastering double pulse welding technology is relatively high.

(2) Higher equipment cost: The welding equipment required for double pulse welding is usually more complex and more costly. This includes dual pulse welding power sources, control systems and corresponding welding guns and accessories. High equipment costs may limit the adoption of this technology by some businesses, especially small and medium-sized businesses or those with limited budgets.

(3) High technical requirements: Double pulse technology requires welding operators to have a high level of technology and professional knowledge. They need to be able to accurately understand the role of welding parameters and be able to adjust and optimize them according to actual conditions. This technically demanding feature may result in increased training costs for welding operators, or in some cases operational errors may occur that affect welding quality.

(4) High maintenance and upkeep costs: Double pulse equipment usually requires regular maintenance and upkeep to ensure its normal operation and stability. Due to the high complexity of the equipment, maintenance and upkeep costs may be relatively high. Additionally, if equipment fails or parts need to be replaced, additional repair costs and downtime may be added.

(5) Not suitable for all applications: Although double pulse welding technology is excellent in improving welding quality and stability, it is not suitable for all welding application scenarios. For some simple welding tasks or situations where welding quality is not high, the use of Double pulse technology may appear to be too complex and unnecessary, thus increasing production costs and complexity.
