Spot welding is a type of resistance welding process commonly used in sheet metal manufacturing to join two or more metal sheets together. It involves applying heat and pressure at specific points (or spots) on the metal sheets, causing them to melt and fuse together.
Spot welding is fast and efficient, making it suitable for mass production applications. It is often used in the automotive industry for joining vehicle body panels, as well as in various other manufacturing processes where thin sheet metal components need to be joined together. The control of welding parameters, such as current, time, and pressure, is crucial to ensure consistent and high-quality welds.
It's worth noting that spot welding has its limitations. It's best suited for materials with good electrical conductivity, such as steel and certain other metals. Additionally, the thickness of the metal sheets being joined should not be too great, as excessive thickness can lead to poor penetration and weaker welds.
In addition to our inhouse spot and stud welding services, we also offer through our carefully selected subcontractors all mig and tig welding on aluminium, steel and stainless steel.
