Luvata is one of the most respected manufacturers of resistance-welding electrodes. Our resistance-welding electrodes are used on robotic welding machines,
primarily in automotive applications.
The unique blend of superior alloy composition and proprietary cold working properties enhances the welding performance of our electrodes in adverse welding conditions created by coated materials.
The introduction of galvanised and high strength steels, as well as a variety of newly developed coatings in automotive manufacturing have created new challenges for resistance welding.
Zinc, higher strength steels and other coatings can have adverse effects on the performance and life of cap welding electrodes, leading to premature wear and tear, sticking and increased dressing frequencies to maintain quality welds. As a result, traditional welding with chrome and/or chrome zirconium alloy electrodes has become inefficient and costly.
Our resistance-welding electrodes have been designed to overcome these challenges and provide the ideal solution for demanding welding conditions.
