The demand for mixed joints of hard-welded steels used in civil engineering and transport is increasing. An example of this can be welding of pins of high-strength steel S690 QL (1.8928) with the arms of a movable platform made of DOCOL 1200M steel from the AHSS group. This joint is difficult to make properly, due to significant differences in the thickness of welded elements and different chemical composition of both steels. The thickness of the cylindrical pin is 40 mm, the diameter of the pin is 50 mm. The thickness of the metal sheet used for the mobile platform arm is 2 mm. . Joints of varying thickness and chemical composition may have cracks in the heat affected zone and in the weld. The purpose of the article is to determine the most appropriate welding parameters and the selection of filler materials that will allow to obtain the correct joint without welding defects.
