The use of modern pulse-arc welding technologies allows a signifi cant improvement of the quality of welded joints. However, a large number of possible welding modes hinder the development and implementation of pulse technologies in modern production. This is associated with the fact that in pulsed arc welding at least four independently variable parameters exist, which in totality requires a large number of experiments to determine their impact. To optimize the number of experiments in this study, the experimental calculation Taguchi algorithm for the process of pulsating arc welding using a highly alloy welding material was implemented. The quantitative contribution of each variable welding parameter in the formation of the penetration depth is shown. The optimal welding modes were proposed, providing a set penetration depth. 15 Ref., 6 Tabl., 4 Fig. Keywords: pulsating arc welding, penetration depth, Taguchi algorithm, highly alloy welding material
