Weld Systems Integrators adds new lab capabilities

10 June 2019

Weld Systems Integrators (WSI), Warrensville Heights, Ohio, has announced there will be a new addition to its welding lab capabilities. The company has added a 12-kilojoule capacitive discharge welding machine, and an MFDC heavy-duty press welding machine.

This equipment gives the company capabilities for the projection welding of fasteners to hot-stamped and press-hardened steels, extremely hard aluminum, stainless steel alloys, and Gen III materials. The company also conducts research on heat-affected zones (HAZ) and its intrusion on coatings, hardness, and metallurgical changes in the weld zone.

The welding lab is open to customers to experiment with resistance welding applications.
