What Is Resistance Welding?

Resistance welding joins metals together using a combination of pressure and heat generated by an electrical current. No flux, fillers or external heat sources are required in the process due to the weld being created by the resistance to the flow of current passing through the materials and application of external force/pressure. Most metals or alloys can be joined using resistance welding .

Several different welding processes like Spot, Projection, Seam and Flash/Butt are all classified has resistance welding.
