The article presents the process of welding of steel movable platform supports. There is a growing demand for the welding of difficult-to-weld fine grain steels used in civil engineering and transport. An example of this could be the use of high-strength movable platform supports. The recently used material in the production of movable platform supports are fine-grained steels due to their high tensile strength of 1000 MPa. The joints formed using them, however, are characterized by much lower strength than the native material. In this article, the most appropriate parameters were selected for welding the movable platform supports made of difficult-to-weld fine-grained steel S960 MC.
