An experimental study of GTAW was conducted to determine the optimization of weld parameters on the droplet formation in the surface quality of weld pools. These optimization investigations consisted of welding current, welding speed and feed rate. The strength and surface quality of weld pool were measured for each specimen after the welding parameter optimizations and the effect of these parameters on droplet formation were researched. To consider these quality characteristics together in the selection of welding parameters, the Orthogonal Array of Taguchi method is adopted to analyze the effect of each welding parameter on the weld pool quality, and then to determine the welding parameters with the optimal weld pool quality.
