Percussion Weld Monitor Waveform Analysis To Aide In The Development Of Weld Settings

The Percussion Weld Monitor by MTI MicroWelding provides waveform analysis to aid in the development of weld settings, define a “Signature” waveform for any particular product, evaluate production welds, and collect data to meet your QC requirements.

There are 3 primary stages for setting up and monitoring your percussion welds on the weld monitor.

Follow these Key steps or contact us for the entire operating manual.

How It Works


In the ” Learning” stage using the weld monitor, we perform welds to create a signature waveform for evaluating production welds. The system weld monitors three main characteristics of the percussion weld energy output. In the Learning stage, the search area for each of these characteristics is configured: (Maximum Amplitude) (Point of Contact or Inflection) (Waveform)


Once the pattern is created you can continue to the next configuration step on the percussion weld monitor and use this in the next step to test. In the Configuration step, you select the pattern for Testing and make any desired adjustments to the search areas. You can also set the duration time of the digital output signals of a pass or fail for alarms or automation. This will help finalize details using the weld monitor. To understand these processes see the bench fixture as well.


If any of the 3 weld characteristics fail, the system will display a Fail screen and output a fail signal on the weld monitor so that you can verify further information In the Test section, the system uses the pattern selected in the configuration section to compare to subsequent welds. If the welds are within the parameters set for maximum current, inflection, or contact point, and waveform the system will deliver a Pass screen and generate an SVDC digital output signal to monitors and weld analyzers.

Operation So Simple And Intuitive

Watch this video doing a pull test.A common joining requirement in today’s small medical devices is to join a stranded copper wire onto a stainless steel device. These may be critical welds; we can test joint integrity with a pull test. The pull test shows it breaking just at about 10 lbs. Extremely strong! We would love to hear how this applies to you as well?
