Spot Welding Services

Spot WeldingHere at Vista Industrial Products, Inc., we have numerous spot welding capabilities. Our trained staff has experience in welding various types of steel, stainless steel, and even aluminum. Some of the various types of products we spot weld include:

  • Brackets
  • Cabinets
  • Drawers
  • Kiosks
  • Chassis
  • Other sheet metal assemblies

What is spot welding?
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.

The amount of current delivered to the spot is determined by the amplitude and duration of the current, along with the resistance between the copper electrodes. The sheet metal's material type and thickness, along with the type of electrodes used, will help determine the right amount of current required to create a spot weld. If there is not enough current applied to the sheet metal, then a poor weld will be produced since the metal will not metal. If there is too much current applied to the sheet metal, then the sheet metal will melt all the way through, creating a hole.

Advantages of Spot Welding
The advantage of using spot welding is that it is quick since such a large amount of current is produced in a short time, and that it is very easy to control to produce reliable welds without the entire sheet being affected.
