    Abstract - Inconels 792 are nickel-base superalloy material that has high strength and creep resistance at temperature near their melting point. This material is commonly used in aircraft gas turbine (jet) engines, where parts or components are subjected to high temperature and high stress. Not-withstanding the high- temperature capabilities of the alloys, during service the parts are often damaged by hot gas erosion and other types of mechanism. Welding is one of the repair method available nowadays. The application is typically accomplished by Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW). Unfortunately, however, these superalloys also have limited ductilities at elevated temperatures, and are consequently subject to cracking due to differential thermal strains in some temperature ranges, a phenomenon termed “strain-age” cracking. The solution proposed is Superalloy Welding at Elevated Temperature (SWET). Elevating temperature on the parts or components that are to be welded probably could reduce the thermal gradient occurred, thus creating a crack-free weldments. Also elevated temperature could reduce the amperage needed to achieve the welding temperature, hence lower electricity and cost are resulted.
