Rexroth Solution:

Rexroth PSI6000 series weld controls with PSQ 6000 system for adaptive control of resistance welding, integrating advanced controls with process monitoring to automatically adjust welding time and current to each task.

Results:

  • 100% inspection and real-time control enables high quality with high throughput
  • Reduced destructive weld tests on samples
  • Dramatically reduces resistance welding expolsion, increasing safety and reducing contamination
  • Less weld variability, greater weld reliability
  • Integration of weld quality documentation into QC processes
