Effectively Addressing Workpiece Variation Challenges in Resistance Welding
Challenges in resistance welding can have potentially dire consequences if not fully and accurately addressed.
This paper focuses specifically on addressing one of the key challenges of resistance welding — workpiece variation. That is, the interface between workpieces and the electrode-to-workpiece
interactions for heat generation that serve as the basis of resistance welding.
We describe how resistance welding works and the most common types used. We talk about some
of the challenges and what the conventional solutions have been. The paper also details the capabilities of adaptive controls, the most advanced tools available, and how this latest technology is benefiting manufacturing and other industries.
