The home workshop grade welders make spots only about 1/8" diameter with extremely low tip pressures and only 1000 to 1500 amps welding current.
The welding strength is sensitive to the welding current and welding time.
MI-100control T resistance spot welder, which features the industry's lightest transformer pliers, longest lightweight cables and a high welding current perfect for working on high-strength steel.
The 150 peer-reviewed and selected papers consider such topics as a "green" rubber compound for making tire tread with anti-static features, the effect of spot welding current and cycles on the mechanical properties of welded galvanized steel sheets, nanoelectrode chrome photomask design and specification for biosensor fabrication, destroying pathogenic micro-organisms in contaminated water by oxide photocatalysis, and kinetic and thermodynamic studies of the adsorption of copper ions into pomelo peel (Citrus grandis).
The CMT process is based on controlled pulsed welding current and voltage and is basically a derivate of the well-known MIG/MAG process.
For example, the potential causes of spatter are listed as: welding current too high; arc too long; incorrect polarity--arc blow; and insufficient gas shielding.
Two Aristo 1000 AC/DC units can easily be connected in synchronised parallel mode to deliver more welding current.
The location of the laser beam focal point with respect to the workpiece surface in conjunction with the welding current was found to affect the weld penetration.
To sum up, the maximum weld penetration for the hybrid laser-arc process is generally obtained when the laser beam is focused below the top sheet surface, with a value related to welding current.
Speed of surfacing and total welding current are interdependent.
