The current work is intended to study the influence of using ER4043 and ER5356 filler metals on mechanical properties of A6061 Al alloy welded joint made by gas metal arc welding process (GMAW). For this study, 12mm plates of these materials were joint using a type single V groove butt joints with four layers and five passes configuration of welded joints. The soundness of the quality of the weld joint was investigated by X-ray Ct-Scan technique. The joint made with the ER4043 presented an enhancement of mechanical properties. In comparison with the joint made with ER5356, Al A6061 with ER4043 welded joint shows to have an advantage due to the formation of very fine grain and have uniformly distributed porosity in the weld region area.
