Welding is a process that we all know – and it uses heat to melt the materials (usually steel and metal), allowing it to cool back down in order for the components and materials to combine and to fuse together.
But what if there’s a welding method that uses heat, resistance, and pressure all at once to arrive at the type of weld that your final product or output needs? Spot welding, or the type of welding that is done to weld and to fuse together to metal sheets, utilizes resistance and the natural magical powers of welding to do the trick.
Spot welding is not necessarily for sheet metals, it can be used to fuse and combine parts, components, and materials that have flat and even surfaces because this type of welding will rely on the resistance of each metal to one another, creating the friction for the strength and the durability of the weld.
Does spot welding sound good to you? Then you’re just in the right page because we here at Indiana Contract Manufacturing Professionals are the company that you can absolutely count on when it comes to the spot welding request you have.
Pros of Spot Welding
So how can spot welding be efficient and effective for the welding that you need for your products and your components? How can this help you?
Lower Chance of Distortion
The process of spot welding uses less heat and it’s done fast, resulting in the fewer and the decreased levels of distortion in the workpieces or the sheet metals. Unlike other types of weld like MIG or TIG welding, the distortion in spot welding is eliminated.
Spot welding is known to be an effective and flexible way of welding and it is literally something that you can definitely work with.
Contrary to popular belief, spot welding is actually a cheaper type of weld if placed side-by-side to the other types of the weld. Herewith us at Indiana Contract Manufacturing Professionals, you will never have a single problem when you ask us for spot welding because all our experts and welders are all adept and skilled to do it.
Although it requires little-to-no skill, our welders can provide world-class quality of welding even if it’s just via spot welding.
Can be Semi-Automatic or Fully-Automatic
Similar to other welding methods and procedures, spot welding can be operated in both semi and fully-automatic, making whatever you need done or produced exactly how it should be welded. Spot welding is the perfect type of welding you can ask your fabrication company or your manufacturer to perform if you are in the process of welding two pieces of flat-surfaced metal sheets together.
There are not a lot of companies that are adept in this but you can definitely count on us here at Indiana Contract Manufacturing Professionals.
More Efficient and Highly Effective
With its speed and its urgency, it is more effective in the manufacturing and fabrication process. In addition to that, because it uses the electrical current more passively, it provides a higher level of energy efficiency than the other types of the weld.
These are just some of the benefits or the pros of spot welding – there are many more that you can take advantage of but is it really for you? Ask yourself the following questions first for you to be able to identify whether or not spot welding is really the type of welding that you can work with:
- Am I combining or fusing two metal sheets or flat-surfaced products together?
- How do I want the weld to look like?
If you have final answers to those questions, you can absolutely approach us here at Indiana Contract Manufacturing Professionals. Other than being excellent spot welders, you can also count on us in terms of other welding methods and procedures.
A Close Look at Spot Welding
In its simplest definition, spot welding is the type of electric resistance welding that is pursued and done to weld two or more sheet metals to one another. In this type of weld, two copper electrodes are used to press the workpieces or metal sheets together.
Those copper electrodes contain the electric current which will provide the welding that the products or the outputs would need. Unlike the traditional way of welding, only one copper electrode is used and the concentration is more because it aims to melt the metals or the steels.
In spot welding, on the other hand, it will use resistance and a bit of heat to complete the trick.
How It Works
For you to have a more generalized idea of how spot welding works, let’s take this example. Let’s say that you have a project to create bronze cutlery and you need our help to weld some of the metal sheet parts or the components together.
With our experts here at Indiana Contract Manufacturing Professionals being knowledgeable in the situation, they’ll know that what needs to be done is spot welding and they’ll perform the job. Using highly-specialized copper electrodes to provide the force and the push – they’ll slip the material in between the two electrodes that are forcing up to each other, while the heat is applied to both workpieces.
It’s called “spot” welding because the spot where they’re pushed against is where the weld will be and it will look seamless and spotless.
And we’re not just experts in welding, you can count on us to help you with other services and metal fabrication processes, too including:
