Moreover, what are the types of resistance welding?

Types of Resistance Welding

  • Resistance Spot Welding.
  • Resistance Projection Welding.
  • Resistance Butt Welding.
  • Flash Butt Welding.
  • Resistance Seam Welding.

Also, which welding is similar to projection welding? The basic concept of both Spot and Projection welding is similar i.e. Fuse & Stick (Resistance Weld) the metal to secure a strong Bond/Weld. In spot welding. only a small part(a small spot) is welded with heat & pressure.

Additionally, what is resistance welding process?

Resistance welding is the joining of metals by applying pressure and passing current for a length of time through the metal area which is to be joined. The key advantage of resistance welding is that no other materials are needed to create the bond, which makes this process extremely cost effective.

What is the difference between spot welding and projection welding?

Projection welding is actually a modification of spot welding, the pioneer resistance welding process. Projection welding is generally used for projects with thicker materials (around 0.035” and thicker). While it can be also used to join thinner metal pieces together, that tends to be a job left for spot welding.
