Resistance Welding Services

Resistance welding joins two disparate metal surfaces through the application of pressure and voltage which then passes a high current through thereby melting the two components together at the joint process does not require additional materials to create a bond, which makes it a very cost-effective and efficient process with applications in a wide range of industries.

Multiple welding processes are available, with each used to address slightly different challenges. Spot welding and projection welding commonly used for weld nuts are the most commonly used forms of resistance welding and can handle nearly all relevant resistance welding tasks.

At Clairon Metals, we have extensive experience with many forms of welding, including resistance welding. We provide automated welding solutions to increase productivity and we can work with thin or heavy gauge steel. Our processes also include multiple integrated controls that verify the weld integrity, the proper part is being used, and even that every part has completed the process completely.

Clairon Metals offers spot welding and projection welding, enabling us to handle most resistance welding projects. We work closely with customers to help them determine the most appropriate welding method for their needs and we design and build the necessary weld fixtures and check fixtures to ensure 100% repeatability.

Spot Welding

Spot welding is an electric resistance welding method that creates welds using heat and force. Applying an electric current from two tips on either side of the components to be welded causes the metal material to melt and form a weld pool. This pool bonds the two separate metal pieces as it cools. The weld joint leaves a darkened spot and depression in the metal.  Spot welding is one of the oldest welding methods but is still valuable in many scenarios even today.

Projection Welding

Projection welding also uses force and heat created by resistance to the flow of welding current. However, projection welding differs in that one of the parts being welded, very typically a weld nut has projections that are designed to melt.  These weld points are typically a protrusion of metal which is used to localize the weld by generating heat at the point of contact. As the heat is applied, the projection collapses to form a weld nugget, which then cools into a firm weld.  The weld protrusions that have collapsed and created the weld joint are darkened in color.  Destructive testing is done on every part to ensure that a nugget is pulled from the base part ensuring the weld is good.
