Abstract: This paper presents the effect of vibratory dissimilar TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding process on hardness of welded joins with respect to change of vibratory parameters. In this study, new vibratory setup with two metal engravers is used to give mechanical vibrations to the specimens to be welded. Finally, the effect of mechanical vibrations with the variation of vibration parameters is studied on the hardness at the weld bead and heat effected zone (HAZ) of welded joints.
