Taxonomy: Seam Welding

Description

Seam welding joins two metallic workpieces together by passing them through a two-electrode welding tool and melting the junction.

 

Overview of Process

Seam welding is a process for welding (joining by melting) metallic workpieces. The workpieces are put close to each other, then passed through a welding tool made of two wheel-shaped electrodes. The heat generated by these electrodes melts the junction, and then forms a permanent bond as the metal cools.
