In this study, weldability of bronze parts produced by powder metallurgy has been investigated by using TIG welding technique. Bronze powders were pressed into 55x44x5 mm size specimens under pressure of 350 MPa. Then these specimens were sintered at 650, 750 and 870 degrees C for 45 minute under argon atmosphere. Finally, the parts were welded by TIG welding method. Hardness values of the welded joints were measured and microstructural features were investigated.
