Resistance Welding Diagram

Resistance welding is a trusted and cheap method of joining metal together.  The application of electricity, pressure, time, along with the electrical resistance of the materials creates enough heat to melt the materials together. Unlike other welding processes such as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), no other consumable material is used to make the weld.

There are several types:

  • Resistance Spot Welding (including Seam Welding)
  • Resistance Projection Welding: (including Cross Wire Welding)
  • Flash Butt Welding
  • Upset Welding

While we assist our customers with all of these processes, we specialize in Resistance Spot and Projection Welding. You can find more information in the links below.
