Resistance Welding

Large volume, small footprint

Resistance welding joins materials using pressure and an electric current. This eliminates the need for consumable metals and shielding gasses, making this manufacturing process highly efficient and environmentally-friendly.

Our facility is equipped with industry-leading, American-made machinery, enabling our technicians to deliver high-quality resistance spot welds of 1/8” steel to 1/8” steel, and 1/16” aluminum.

How Does Resistance Welding Work?

Resistance Spot Welding utilizes copper alloy electrodes carrying an electric current. The electrodes make contact with two (or more) sheets of metal, which are held together under pressure. The heat that is generated melts the material, and the current is shut off. Pressure is maintained while the weld pool solidifies, forming the weld nugget and joining the two materials. Spot Welding is used by the automotive industry, and can be applied to aerospace, defense, and medical devices as well.
