Why It’s Critical to Monitor Differential Cylinder Pressure
Weld Computer Blog
by Bob Cohen
6M ago
When performing resistance welding, electrode force impacts the size and strength of the welds produced. This force is controlled by differential cylinder pressure, meaning that monitoring this variable is another way to indirectly monitor the electrode force. Monitoring cylinder pressure has multiple use cases. It is often used to ensure: Down and up pressures are set properly both during welding and during the forging operation, Consistent pressure delivery from weld to weld (and notify the operator if a variation occurs beyond specified limits), and Proper timing of forging to prevent crac ..read more

Why Are There Black Spots on My Aluminum Welds? Here’s What You Need to Know.
Weld Computer Blog
by Bob Cohen
2y ago
A manufacturer contacted us recently with a problem:  Their welding performance looked good and their machine performing well. But each aluminum weld created had a dark spot that was noticeable. They were concerned about the impact this cosmetic defect was having on the appearance of their product, and the perception that it could be impacting the quality of the welds they are producing. We see this phenomenon often in machines using a frequency converter transformer operating at the upper electrical limit. As the head lifts after the weld is formed, an electrical arc can happen between t ..read more

What is the Cost of Maintaining the Status Quo?

Abraham Lincoln once said, “give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” While Lincoln’s quote highlights the importance of preparation, I see another lesson – ensuring you have the optimal tooling for the job. As I recount on my 30+ years in the industry, I continue to think of how directly correlated this is to another lumberjack analogy a Manufacturing Engineer told me to describe his company’s production operation: At the beginning of the week, a lumberjack cut down ten trees in a day. The following day, he was able to cut down seven. A day la ..read more
