Furthermore the cylinder pressure is responsible for the electrode force and can be adjusted as well.
The parameters of the spot welding process like constant welding current, constant electrode force / -pressure a.
Further the cylinder pressure is responsible for the electrode force and can be adjusted as well.
In this state the electrode arms get already elastically deformed by the electrode force applied pneumatically.

Why you should care: The electrode force gauge allows welding robots to self-test at selected intervals to make sure that force is still within predetermined levels so that weld quality does not become unacceptable and require re-work.
A programmable, low-friction air cylinder can adjust electrode force parameters in 100-pound increments, ensuring the integrity of weld strength.
