Taxonomy: Spot Welding

Description

Spot welding joins two metallic components together by quick, high energy blasts of electricity.

Overview of Process

Spot welding is a process designed to join two metallic workpieces together. A brief, but high energy, electrical arc is created at the junction, which quickly melts the metals and, upon cooling, forms a permanent bond.

Additional Notes
