Spot Weld Testing

Resistance Spot Welding (RSW) is a dominant joining method in automotive and aerospace manufacturing. A typical modern vehicle for example, contains thousands of spot welds which experience a range of static, impact, and fatigue loads over the life of the vehicle. The quality of these welds is inherently important to the durability and safety of the final automotive or aerospace structure - therefore, routine strength testing of spot welds is a critical aspect of any RSW operation.
