How It Works
Advanced Micro-welding With A Smooth Learning Curve
The percussion welding process is quick to learn, easy to operate with direct welds between dissimilar metals, and it is low maintenance, helping you get up and running fast while minimizing potential downtime. Learn more about our percussion welder.
What Is The Percussion Welding Process?
Two metals are loaded with their weld points brought to a pre-defined gap.
An electrical arc is generated between the materials to be joined.
Each material becomes molten. The materials are thrust together in the percussive phase, creating a full bond between the materials.
Within milliseconds, the two materials are welded together without using any filler material.
What Is Percussion Welding?
Percussion welding is a highly versatile process that can be used to weld a variety of metals including aluminum, brass, copper, steel, and titanium. The percussion welding process produces high-quality welds with little or no distortion.
These types of welds can apply from the smallest application to large scale applications that can include micro welding for manufacturing, small area components, and allow for a streamline production due to its compact design.
How it works
To percussion weld two pieces of metal together, a welder needs to create an electric arc between the two pieces.
This process can be difficult and dangerous if not done correctly. If the welder is too close to the metal, it could burn. The weld will not be strong enough if they are too far away.
Percussion welding is a type of arc welding that produces high-temperature heat from an arc. This intense heat makes it possible for the welder to join two pieces of metal that are dissimilar together quickly and safely. Because the heating time is short, usually less than 3 milliseconds, the heat affect zone (HAZ) is minimal, resulting in little or no negative affect on the materials.
This allows for micro-welding on small components, wires, and other applications in finer detail.
What Is A Percussion Welder?
A Percussion welder is a micro welder that allows for two different metals on smaller surfaces to be joined together effectively.
Percussion welding is an advanced technology for micro welding. It offers many benefits over other methods, including faster cycle times and higher quality welds.
With percussion welding, you can join metals together quickly and easily with little to no post-welding cleanup. This makes it the perfect choice for manufacturing companies looking to save time and money.
Percussion Welding can also be known as micro-welding and there are multiple setups for these units to accommodate all your needs.

A Percussion Welder generates a minuscule heat-affected zone, and there’s never a need to crimp and solder because you’re creating an autonomous weld.
In addition to the 858 Percussion Welder, we have recently introduced the Percussion Weld Monitor. A monitor is an excellent tool for both process development as well as production monitoring.
Operation so simple and intuitive, we can show you how to use Percussion Welder in less than 60 seconds.
If you’re like us, sometimes a picture (or video) is worth a thousand words. Watch our 60-second video showing you step-by-step how easy Percussion Welder is to operate
