Resistance spot welding is a capability at Vista Industrial Products, Inc. Spot welding passes an electric current through the metal being welded. Resistance to the electrical flow heats the metal to welding temperature. The process is used to weld together two or more overlapping pieces. Spot welding is well-suited to automatic welding.

Spot welding is commonly used to join/bond metal to create the following:

Brackets
Cabinets
Other sheet metal assemblies

Spot Welding works by holding sheets of metal together with two copper alloy electrodes. The sheet metal used is generally about .020 to .12 in thickness. Thicker stock is more difficult to spot weld since the current has more surrounding metal to flow to. While the two copper electrodes hold the sheets together, a large electric current flows through the electrodes and melts the metal into a “spot”, and welds the two pieces together.
