Resistance Welding an Art of Joining that dates back to the era of Eli Thompson in the 1800's.
Today's process is sophisticated, automated, quick and facing challenges from alternative joining methods and materials in large volume users such as the Automotive sector.
However whilst such proven technology remains viable, so will the requirement for electrode tip dressing, a technique for maintaining electrode condition so that quality and weld strength at a competitive cost can be maintained.
New Steel material such as Usibor, AHSS, Trip Steel and in the future Nano Steel and Aluminium will play an increasing part in vehicle structures and so too will the need to maintain the electrodes.
Tip Dressing is a 100 year old industry with the first patents existing since the 1920's.
Todays sophisticated manufacturers from Europe, Japan and America provide techniques and machines that all have many things in common, ostensibly a rotating gearbox with a holder and a cutter blade.
Maximising the performance requires a synergistic approach and here you will find a company who can provide such technology that is accepted based on years of experience and dedication to understanding the process.
