Spot Welding Training
Resistance (Spot) Welding Training (full-day classroom or 2-days classroom + hands-on)
(click here for brochure)
This resistance welding training course is designed for technical personnel who routinely deal with the resistance welding issues including design, manufacturing, R&D, and quality assurance. The course starts with fundamentals of resistance welding including discussion of contact resistance, bulk resistance, and the basic welding schedule. In the next section on configurations, we look at various options for part geometry such as opposed, step, seam, and projection that can be employed based on the product requirements and constraints. The section on equipment discusses functioning of weld heads, power supplies, and electrodes. The various options available on formation of the bond such as solid-state, reflow, and fusion weld are presented in the weld metallurgy section; option to make three different types of bonds is unique to the resistance welding process. Day-to-day issues that affect weld quality are discussed in the operational issues section. In the process control section, we look at methods to improve process yields by proper selection of welding modes (current, voltage, and power) that are available in the newer power supplies. Understanding defects and testing procedures will help with investigation of weld issues. Finally, the section on heat balance presents various options to improve weld quality by proper selection of electrodes and materials.
The resistance welding training course can be configured for one day of classroom based training or for two days combining classroom and hands-on. The resistance welding training course is designed to be offered at your location. If you are interested in hands-on training but do not have the facilities, such training can be organized at a vendor location.
