Effect of Electrode Force Change on Spot Weld Quality of AHSS Using Servo Gun
Due to bad welds including small button, weld expulsion, and weld whisker etc., it is studied that the effect of constant and variable electrode force with servo gun on the weld quality of high strength steels with different thickness and materials. The results show that the electrode force plays an important role in resistance spot welding of AHSS as well as that of mild steels. Under the same welding current and time, better welds with higher tensile shear strength and larger nugget size can be obtained by optimizing electrode force curve using servo gun. The solutions could supply reference to study the prospect of servo gun in the joining of high strength steels.
