Increasing Resistance Seam Welding Throughput with Adaptive Controls

Benefits include regulating weld consistency, operating at fast production speeds, and improving weld quality By Robert K. Cohen Making a gas-tight seal with a seam welding machine involves making a series of overlapping spots. Each spot produced should be a fully formed nugget that is free of expulsion. Using too little heat produces an undersized spot, which can cause a leak. Using too much […]
