Used for a wide range of automotive, aerospace and industrial applications, resistance welders join metals by applying pressure and passing current through the metal area being joined for a specified length of time. This is extremely cost effective because no other materials are needed to create the bond. Spot, seam, projection, flash and upset welding are separate resistance welding processes that use different types and shapes of weld electrodes to apply the pressure and conduct the current. The electrodes are cooled by water flowing through them and the other conductive tooling of the resistance welding machine.
Get the most from your robotic welding investment through careful planning and continued monitoring.
Metal fabricators will find no shortage of advanced and readily available resistance welders to meet their needs.
