Even though micro welding is one of the most demanding forms of joining metals, its results are precise and clean. Micro welding is a difficult process due to the miniature size of the metals that requires the welder to control energy output and be steady with tools. Percussion welding is one form of micro welding, the following is a simple breakdown of how our Percussion Welder works when joining metals.
MTI Micro Welding’s Percussion Welder: How It Works
The Percussion Welder joins components smaller than the ones in average welding processes with parts as small as .003 inches. Considering the high precision levels required, this process may require microscopes to view the tiny metals that require welding. Here’s how it works:
- The welder loads two metals with weld points at a pre-set gap. These gaps vary depending on the type of application.
- An electrical arc is introduced at the point where the materials join for generation of heat. Each end becomes molten, and pressure is applied to join the two materials and create a complete bond.
- It only takes a few milliseconds to join the two parts without any filler material.
- Such quick welding processes with higher levels of precision are ideal for medical technology, electrical engineering, automotive electrical systems, and lighting fixtures.
