Abstract

This paper presents the study on interface bonding characteristic of AA7075 and AA6061 aluminum alloy with AR500 steel by torch brazing bonding process. The weight reduction in vehicles component is required for energy saving in the automobile industry. Lightweight metals such as aluminum joining with other metal especially with steel, have started replaced steel parts in automobile structures but the effect of intermetallic compound (IMC) layer formation have limited the application in this industry due to strength matter. The torch brazing method was done to join the dissimilar metal with Al-Si-Zn base filler metal for the process. The shear strength of the AA6061/AR500 joint was higher than the AA7075/AR500 joint when the joining conditions were the same. The IMC formation was observed at the joint interface, and the joints mainly fractured at this region.
