What’s the fastest and easiest way to improve your manufacturing welding processes? That’s simple: use a closed-loop resistance welding power supply! And you’re thinking “okaaay…what’s ‘closed-loop’ and why do I want to use it? I know why you want to sell it – it’s a higher end power supply that costs more money, but exactly how will that help me in my process?” Well, I’m going to tell you.
What is closed loop? At a high level, closed-loop resistance welding power supplies use current and voltage feedback sensors to precisely control the energy delivered to the parts. This ability to accurately control weld energy is a key factor in overcoming problems associated with process variation and the rapid changes in resistance that happen during the weld.
