Newer automobile designs aim at reducing vehicle weight. Driven by this need light metal industry is experiencing some exciting developments. One of the most widely used light metal is aluminum. As use of aluminum as an alternative material grows, manufacturers face newer challenges. These new challenges are development of new aluminum alloys, joining of different types of aluminium alloys and improvement in weld quality of welds and weld repairs. One of the technologies being explored by the fabricators of aluminum is pulse gas metal arc welding (GMAW-P). This paper explores difficulties in joining of newer varieties of aluminum alloys and how GMAW-P can help in meeting newer challenges of welding of aluminum.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
