Abstract : IN ORDER TO TRANSFER DATA CONCERNING WELDING CURRENT, TIME, PRESSURE FROM SINGLE PHASE RESISTANCE WELDERS TO POLYPHASE SPOT WELDERS, VARIOUS APPROACHES ARE CONSIDERED. The only method that shows promise is the calculation of one number for a particular metal that considers material thickness, electrode force, welding current, and welding time for a single phase welder. Multiplication of this single number by a factor yields another number which represents the settings on the dc welder or the frequency converter welder. The result is only approximate and should result in a reduction in the amount of experimentation required to determine the parameters for the polyphase welders rather than its complete elimination.
