The 3 Key Things to Consider Before You Buy or Upgrade Your Resistance Welding Machine to Avoid a Costly Decision

Get more out of your existing resistance welding machine by upgrading your control. If you are in the market for a new resistance welding machine, this article might save you tens of thousands of dollars. Our team collaborates with resistance welding manufacturers to help solve problems of reliability and inconsistent weld performance. Often, the conversation […]

Do I need less KVA for an MFDC transformer than an AC transformer?

For resistance spot welding, resistance projection welding, and resistance seam welding, the RMS current needed to weld a specific material of a specific thickness will be similar for MFDC as for AC. If all things are considered equal, where the only variable is the weld transformer type, the same KVA MFDC or AC transformer is […]

Resistance Weld Machine Spring Constant Impacts Welding Results

Often resistance welding operators report that their setup is exactly the same except that now the welds are different.  They don’t realize that a seemingly irrelevant adjustment to the geometry of the welding setup can change the spring constant of the linkages applying electrode force to the part.  While a change in the spring constant […]

Lead Acid Battery Adaptive Resistance Welding

A number of factors contribute to resistance welding inconsistency, including: Inconsistent heat control Electrode force variations Part geometry/contact area variations Material hardness variations Oil on the part Other surface condition variations Conventional controls that apply the same heat regardless of what combination of prevailing conditions exists, result in inconsistent welds. When variations are severe enough, […]
