Taxonomy: Electrical Resistance Welding

Description

Electrical resistance welding is a set of processes that bonds two metallic pieces together by passing current through them and utilizing the heat from their electrical resistance. 

 

Overview of Process

Electrical resistance welding is a series of processes that all involve welding (joining metal pieces together) by passing electrical current through them and using the heat generated from their electrical resistances to melt metal, which cools and forms a joint.

 

Additional Notes

This is a classification process, not a end-node process. Specifying the detailed end-node process required will produce a better RfD search result.
