In this study, Aluminium 6082-T6 plates having 1.0 mm thickness were joined by magnesium-based (AlMg5) wire in cold metal transfer technique. The specimens were prepared in butt joint form. Argon was used as shielding gas and joining operations were done at gas flow speed of 13 l/min. The joining operations were carried out during four different working times of 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 seconds. Tensile properties of joints were determined and macro-structures of joints were investigated in order to evaluate the joinability of Aluminium 6082-T6 alloy by cold metal transfer technique. Finally, the micro-hardness values of specimens were measured.
