Presented is a technological experience of the E.O. Paton Electric Welding Institute in area of development of surfacing technologies for serial repair of blade flanges of aircraft GTE of nickel heat-resistant alloys ZhS26 and ZhS32 with oriented crystallization based on microplasma powder surfacing. It is shown that heat input value in a single-layer or multilayer surfacing using up to 40 A welding current can uniquely determine susceptibility to crack formation in «base–deposited metal» joints. A range of values of total heat input was determined. They can be used to predict absence or presence of cracks (hot or reheating cracks) with high probability. 18 Ref., 7 Figures.
Keywords: nickel heat-resistant alloys, microplasma powder surfacing, weldability, crack formation susceptibility, effective heat power of arc, heat input, total heat input
