Welding Fundamentals and Processes
Resistance spot welding (RSW) is the most widely used joining technique for the assembly of sheet metal products. This article discusses the process description, evaluation methods, and applications of RSW. It describes the equipment needed for RSW and explicates the major functions of electrodes in RSW and effect of surface condition on the technique. The article concludes with information on the safety precautions to be followed during the welding process.
