Abstract: Cladding is a surfacing method by a Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), on carbon or low composite steel base metal to perk up its wear obstruction property. GMAW is utilized for cladding. The properties of clad portions rely on the weld geometry and welding parameters, which must be controlled. Microsoft Excel Solver has been used to streamline the parameters to achieve least debilitating, most extraordinary help, least passageway, most prominent weld width to a target motivating force with the point of view of overseeing on material and to achieve the appealing clad estimations. The work was finished using 309LSi tempered steel filler wire of 0.9mm with IS:2062 assistant steel plates of 20mm thickness as base plates, under the guard of 95% Argon and 5% of Hydrogen gas blend.
