Abstract: The valves form the main part of boiler assembly in order to control the pressure. The body and the yoke are the vital parts of the valve. Generally, in case of low and medium pressure valves, the body and yoke are bolted while in case of high-pressure valves, they are welded to withstand high pressure. During the welding process, defects such as porosity, blow holes, incomplete penetration, cracks, warm holes, lack of fusion, gas holes etc. are likely to occur in the welded components due to a number of reasons, viz., un-optimized process parameters, unskilled operator, working environment, equipment, raw material etc. This work has been done to establish the Optimization of Process parameters for High-Pressure Valve Welding machine to minimize the defects produced during the manufacturing of valve components.
Keywords: Optimization Process High Robotic Components.
