Resistance welding, as the name implies, is a method in which pressure is applied through electrodes after the weldment is assembled, and the resistance heat generated by the current passing through the contact surface of the joint and the adjacent area is used for welding. High-frequency welding: When high-frequency current passes through metal conductors, two peculiar effects will occur: skin effect and proximity effect. High-frequency welding uses these two effects to weld steel pipes. These two effects are used to realize metal The basics of high-frequency welding.


High-frequency welding uses the skin effect to concentrate the energy of high-frequency current on the surface of the workpiece and uses the proximity effect to control the location and range of the high-frequency current flow path. The speed of the current is very fast, it can heat and melt the edge of the adjacent steel plates in a very short time and realize the butt joint by extrusion. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Generally, the specific choice should be analyzed on a case-by-case basis.
