Resistance Welding Literature
To promote the resistance welding process, the RWMA offers
a variety of publications, articles, videos, schools and manuals,
some of which include:
PUBLICATIONS
Resistance Welding Manual, Revised 4th Edition
The Resistance Welding Manufacturing Alliance 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, Revised 4th Edition, describes
the entire resistance welding process including theory,
methods, materials, equipment and accessories. The
revised edition includes many new features such as updated
weld processes, new graphic format for easier reading of
weld schedules and information on newer metal alloys, such
as hot dip galvanized and electro-plated steel.
C1.1M/C.1., Recommended Practices for
Resistance Welding
This Recommended Practice is a collection of data and
procedures that are intended to assist the user in setting up
resistance welding equipment to produce resistance welded
production parts. While the recommendations included
are not expected to be final procedures for every production
part or every welding machine, they serve as starting points
from which a user can establish acceptable welding machine
settings for specific production welding applications. In
some cases, recommended machine data is not available.
In these instances, some description of the process is given
to assist the reader in determining if the process might be
suitable for application.
C1.3:1970 – Recommended Procedure for Resistance
Welding of Coated Low Carbon Steels
C1.4M/C1.4:2009 Specification for Resistance Welding
of Carbon and Low-Alloy Steels (2009)
This specification provides the shear strength and weld
button diameter requirements for carbon steel and low-alloy
steel sheet resistance and projection welds.
C1.5:2009 Specification for the Qualification of
Resistance Welding Technicians (2009)
This specification establishes the requirements for
qualification of Resistance Welding Technicians (RWTs)
employed in the welding industry. The minimum experience,
examination, application, qualification, and requalification
requirements and methods are defined herein. This
specification is a method for technicians to establish a record
of their qualification and abilities in welding industry work
such as development of machine troubleshooting, processes
controls, quality standards, problem solving, etc.
12
Resistance Welding Literature
QC20:2011 Specification for AWS Certification of
Resistance Welding Technicians (2010)
This specification defines the certification program of
the American Welding Society for use in the Certification of
Resistance Welding Technicians (CRWTs). These
certifications require documentation of experience,
and satisfactory completion of a written examination.
The examination tests the CRWT’s knowledge of welding
processes, welding procedures, destructive and
nondestructive tests, welding terms, definitions, symbols,
reports, safety, quality assurance and responsibilities,
machine setup, and other related subjects. Successful
completion of all requirements constitutes the basis for
awarding a certification as a Resistance Welding Technician.
C3.9M/C3.9:2009 Specification for Resistance Brazing
This specification provides the minimum fabrication,
equipment, material, and process procedure requirements,
as well as discontinuity limits for the resistance brazing of
steels, copper, copper alloys, heat- and corrosion-resistant
alloys, and other materials that can be adequately resistance
brazed (the resistance brazing of aluminum alloys is
addressed in AWS C3.7M/C3.7, Specification for
Aluminum Brazing). This specification provides criteria for
classifying resistance brazed joints based on loading and the
consequences of failure and quality assurance criteria
defining the limits of acceptability in each class. This
specification defines acceptable resistance brazing
equipment, materials, and procedures, as well as the
required inspection for each class of joint.
D8.1M:2007 Specification for Automotive
Weld Quality – Resistance Spot Welding of Steel
(2007)
This document contains both visual and measurable
acceptance criteria for resistance spot welds in steels.
The information contained herein may be used as an aid
by designers, resistance welding equipment manufacturers,
welded product producers, and others involved in the
automotive industry and resistance spot welding of steels.
D8.6:2005 Standard for Automotive Resistance
Spot Welding Electrodes (2005)
A supplement to Resistance Welder Manufacturers
Association Bulletin 16, Resistance Welding Equipment
Standards, this standard gives the names and description
of the various types of electrodes, nose shapes and
configurations, material structures, and chemical
compositions of resistance spot weld RSW electrodes.
D8.7M:2005 Recommended Practices for Automotive
Weld Quality – Resistance Spot Welding
A concise quality checklist developed through the AWS SAE
Joint Committee on Automotive Welding to assist
automotive parts suppliers using bare and coated lowcarbon
steels. Tables provide minimum spot weld spacing,
contact overlap, and minimum weld diameter.
13
Resistance Welding Literature
A10.1M:2007 Specification for Calibration and
Performance Testing of Secondary Current Sensing
Coils and Weld Current Monitors used in Single-
Phase AC Resistance Welding (2007)
This specification sets forth accepted methods for testing
and describing the performance of Rogowski-type air core
current sensing coils (CSC) and weld current monitors
(WCM) used in the measurement of single-phase ac resistance
welding currents. A definition of terms relevant to this
measurement is included. CSC and system tests and
calibration methods are described in detail. Detailed
information that shall be made available to the user are
prescribed.
D17.2/D17.2M:2007 Specification for Resistance
Welding for Aerospace Applications (2007)
Requirements for aerospace resistance spot and seam
welding of aluminum, magnesium, steel, nickel, cobalt,
titanium, and their alloys. Intended to replace MIL-W-6858D
and AMS-W- 6858A.

Tec-Option is the “Leader in Modular Assembly and Welding
Solutions”. The flexible system offers lean manufacturing
advantages. Interchangeable tooling modules may consist
of part tooling, weld cylinders, poka-yoke, auto fastener
feeding and auto unload with conveyor. Operators can change
the tool module from one project to the next in less than five
minutes, no tools or forklift required. The product line has
recently been improved and has evolved into their “Tec-Flex”
product, which offers superior flexibility, while maintaining the
same excellent quality. This allows a single machine to perform
multiple tasks; simple tasks, such as fastener or spot welding,
to more complex assemblies that may use MIG welding and
material handling (robotics). The Modular Solution provides
maximum return on capital investment, reusable assets for
further programs, while optimizing machine cycle time. Less
floor space is used than with typical automated systems,
maximizing production footprint and minimizing wasted space.

WeldComputer Corporation manufactures a broad line of
welding controls and monitors for commercial, military and
aerospace resistance welding applications. WeldComputer®
controls and monitors work with spot, projection, seam, flash,
butt, stud and capacitive discharge welding equipment to
improve weld quality, increase weld consistency and throughput,
reduce scrap, and improve worker safety, helping to reduce costs
and improve quality assurance beyond what can be achieved
with conventional equipment. Monitoring products prevent bad
welds from passing through production undetected. Adaptive
features reduce the incidence of bad welds and increase
consistency of all welds. WeldComputer® adaptive controls
have been granted military approval to eliminate destructive
testing. Adaptive control technology is also available for benchtop
applications. Conventional inverter and SCR-based controls
emulate any control function and connect directly to any
welding transformer. Expert consulting services are available
to analyze welding operations, provide practical solutions to
improve welding performance, and reduce losses from machine
inconsistencies and weld variability.
