Characteristics of shunting effect in resistance spot welding in mild steel based on electrode displacement

Xing, Bobin; Xiao, Yi; Qin, Qing H.


Shunting effect of resistance spot welding is evaluated based on the electrode displacement signals. The shunted welds in mild steel with different weld spacing were produced. The results showed that the weld spacing and nugget diameter were polynomial-correlated, and the minimum welding spacing of 20 mm can be derived from the results. Both the peak value and gradient of electrode displacement in the weld stage indicated strong correlations with the nugget diameters of shunted welds....[Show more]
