Resistance Seam Welding (RSEW) Working Principles
Resistance Seam Welding (RSEW) Advantages and Disadvantages
- Gas tight as well as liquid tight joints can be made.
- The Overlap is less than spot or projection welding.
- The production of single seam weld and parallel seams can be got simultaneously.
- The welding process is restricted to a straight line or uniformly curved line.
- The metals sheets having thickness more than 3mm can cause problems while welding.
- The design of the electrodes may be needed to change to weld metal sheets having obstructions.
Applications of RSEW
- Girth weld is possible in rectangular or square or even in circular shapes.
- Most of the metals can be welded (Except copper and some high percentage copper alloys)
- Butt welding can be done.
- Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) or MIG Welding
- Flux shielded metal arc welding process principle
- Tungsten Inert Gas welding or TIG welding
