Abstract

Ultrasonic metal welding can be used to join two metal foils. There are two different effects under ultrasonic welding. They are surface effect and volume effect. These two effects were validated under macro experiments. Then how to validate in micro test is seldom researched. EBSD method was used to research the microstructure evolution of AA6061 under ultrasonic welding. The image maps indicating all Euler angle and the correlated misorientation angle distribution of both original foil and welding sample were got by EBSD in order to understand how ultrasonic welding affect the grain orientation and microstructure. The test shows that after ultrasonic vibration, the grain size has little change. And ultrasonic vibration results in a very weak texture. FEM results also validate these conclusions.
