Why do we need to maintain Tip diameter constant?

In spot welding, a satisfactory weld is obtained when a proper current density is maintained. The current density depends on the contact area between the electrode and the work piece. With continuous use, if the tip becomes upset and the contact area increases, the current density will be lowered and consequently the weld is obtained over a large area. This would not be able to melt the metal and hence there would be no proper fusion.

How to Calculate Electrode tip diameter?

Electrode tip diameter calculator uses electrode diameter=2.54+(Thickness of first material+Thickness of second material) to calculate the electrode diameter, The Electrode tip diameter is the tip of electrode in contact with the work piece during spot welding operation. electrode diameter and is denoted by d symbol.

To use this online calculator for Electrode tip diameter, enter Thickness of first material (t1) and Thickness of second material (t2) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Electrode tip diameter calculation can be explained with given input values -> 2542 = 2.54+(0.001+0.001).

FAQ

What is Electrode tip diameter?
The Electrode tip diameter is the tip of electrode in contact with the work piece during spot welding operation and is represented as d=2.54+(t1+t2) or electrode diameter=2.54+(Thickness of first material+Thickness of second material). Thickness of first material is that dimension which is the smallest of all and Thickness of second material is the minimum dimension given.
How to calculate Electrode tip diameter?
The Electrode tip diameter is the tip of electrode in contact with the work piece during spot welding operation is calculated using electrode diameter=2.54+(Thickness of first material+Thickness of second material). To calculate Electrode tip diameter, you need Thickness of first material (t1) and Thickness of second material (t2). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Thickness of first material and Thickness of second material and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
