An experimental research titled “The effect of MIG process conditions on hardness of stainless steel claddings of a carbon steel substrate” has been carried out. The overall aim is to investigate how different deposition parameters affected macrostructure, microstructure and hardness variation of stainless steel deposited material. The cladding process will be conducted using metal inert gas (MIG) weld method. Background knowledge about metal deposition including form of materials, heat sources and its commercial application in relation to its cladding, process parameter, microstructure properties, hardness variation, and macrostructure also reviewed. This experimental method involves manipulating one variable (cladding parameter) to determine if changes in this variable cause changes in another variable (hardness variation). This method relies on controlled methods and the manipulation of variables to test a hypothesis. Finally, the hardness variation of cladding stainless steel was inspected using Rockwell test. In addition, Design Expert Software that implemented response surface methodology technique has been used in order to make sure the optimization of parameters while conducting this experimental research. This research had successfully analyzed the data collected from this experimental research. The effect of welding parameters such as current, voltage and travel speed are directly affected hardness variations of carbon steel cladding material. Finally, the suggestion to enhance the optimization of parameter in cladding process also had been discussed.
