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 […]
Challenges in resistance welding can have potentially dire consequences if not fully and accurately addressed. Robert K. Cohen, CEO of WeldComputer, talks about some of the challenges and the advanced solutions now available. To learn more, download the full report.
Let the technology leaders in resistance welding evaluate your current welding process and explore ways to increase efficiency and consistency – for free. WeldComputer Corporation is offering free one-on-one assessments to help resistance welders increase the efficiency and consistency of their welds.
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, […]
WeldComputer Corporation has announced its latest U.S. patent for new technology that will benefit resistance welding operations around the world. This technology has allowed the company to introduce an innovative new process that provides a practical method for instrumenting new and existing welding guns to obtain real-time information needed to assess and control the quality […]
