Resistance Welding

Resistance spot, seam and circumferential welding for welding components and/or complete part assemblies. 

Resistance welding is the joining of metals by applying pressure and passing weld current for a length of time through the metal area which is to be joined. The key advantage of resistance welding is that no other materials are needed to create a bond which makes this process extremely cost-effective.

Soldering is often used on brass and copper materials, but it can also be used on stainless and plain steel. Soldering is a good option when resistance welding is not possible or practical. Soldering is also effective for sealing ends or edges. We offer lead-free solder or cadmium-free silver brazing.
