Learn about the resistance welding process that is widely used for assembling metalic pieces togther with superior strength
and superb quality. If done correctly, resistance welds will be stronger than the parent materials.
Resistance welding involves the controlling of electrical currents ranging from as low as 1000 amperes to has high as 250,000
amperes. The voltage that is required across the workpiece to deliver this level of current is only around one volt.
The power transfer is accomplished with the use of a welding transformer.
The welding control provides tools that will assist welding engineers to improve and maintain quality.
All components of the resistance welding process are important. The mechanical tools must be well designed,
the power transfer must be efficient and in good shape. The control algorithm must be capable of dealing with
anomalies. As controls are becoming faster in processing and capable of achieving thoughtful algorithms, it becomes
wise to implement some of these tools into the production environment. Some of the most common problems are listed
in the posts with solutions that follow.
