In order to obtain a good weld, controlling the process parameters such as welding current, welding speed, cycle time become very crucial as it significantly influences the mechanical properties. Thus, the purpose of this study is to investigate the process-properties relationship of welded mild steel tube (SS316 L) of dissimilar thickness by using Metal Inert Gas (MIG) orbital welding. The effects of weld current and jig rotational speed to the tensile properties of welded mild steel tubes were studied. The mechanical properties were tested using Universal Tensile Machine (UTM). Also, in this study the most welding processes as well as the most pipe variations welded by orbital welding systems mainly for oil and gas pipeline applications are explained. So given standard input parameter which is given to Maximum Tensile strength & good finishing.
