Resistance Welding Manual - 4th EditionResistance Welding Manual, 4th Edition

The Resistance Welding Manufacturers' Association (RWMA) has set the standard for resistance welding worldwide. RWMA's most authoritative text about the resistance welding industry is an absolute must for anyone who wants to increase production capabilities, upgrade product quality and maximize the use of manufacturing resources. The Resistance Welding Manual, 4th Edition describes the entire resistance welding process, including theory, methods, materials, equipment and accessories. Chapters include the various processes--spot, projection, seam, flash and upset welding and much more. Published in 1989 by the Resistance Welder Manufacturers' Association. 460 8-1/2" x 11" hardbound pages.

Resistance Welding Manual - 4th EditionBulletin #5 - Resistance Welding Control Standards
This RWMA Bulletin defines and explains the major areas of interest with regards to the Weld Control. If you’re looking for simple explanations of what and how the Weld Control works this Bulletin is required reading. Different types of Weld Controls are discussed as well as timing diagrams, Input/Output connections, SCR sizing and terminal markings. Critical standards of performance are explained, for example, voltage compensation. Additional standards for safety, construction, installation and operation all provide the user with a clear understanding of weld control standards. 62 softbound pages.

Resistance Welding Manual - 4th EditionBulletin #14 - Maintenance Manual for Resistance Welding Machines
This manual looks at the entire welding machine and explains the various sub-systems which are required to operate the machine. The reader will learn about the electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic and cooling systems proper safely techniques, installation and maintenance. Additionionally, several trouble shooting instructional guides provide important information on the proper operation of the welding machine. Quality control measures and helpful preventive maintenance instructions are provided to the user in simple easy to follow instructions. Although many of the personal operating and maintaining welding machines today are skilled craftsman this manual focus’ and explains how these technical disciplines can be optimized towards the ultimate expected outcome, that of a good weld. This manual should be required reading for all personnel that work on welding machines.
