How do I select the proper electrode material for spot welding?
Proper electrode material can be determined from weld schedules based on the work piece being welded. The material needs to be able to handle forces and currents applied during the welding operation. Highly conductive work piece materials such as aluminum, require high currents for spot welding and need highly conductive electrode material. More resistive materials such as stainless steel require considerably lower currents but high forces. They are spot welded with stronger material found in Class 3.
Electrodes used in spot welding are generally made up of which material?
Resistance spot welding electrodes are generally are made of copper and copper-based alloys. However, refractory metal compositions such as Elkonite®, Ekon® and Anviloy® offer higher hardness but lower conductivity and are often used for applications such as projection welding inserts.
Common RWMA classes include Class 2 – copper/chromium or copper/chromium/zirconium and Class 3 – copper-nickel-silicon-chromium and copper-nickel-beryllium. These materials are used for low carbon and high strength steels. Higher conductivity alloys, such as copper/zirconium, are a good choice for welding coated steels as they have less surface heating because of their low contact resistance. Copper/nickel/silicon are great for welding harder sheet materials, such as stainless steels.
