Spot welder is an indispensable equipment in modern manufacturing industry, widely used in automotive, electronics, aviation and other fields. However, during the operation of the spot welder, the operator may encounter some problems. This paper will discuss the common problems in the operation of spot welder and the corresponding solutions.
1.Welding quality
Problem: In the spot welding process, the welding quality is not stable, and sometimes the solder joint is not strong, the solder joint is over-melted, the solder joint surface is not smooth and other problems.
Solution: First, ensure the accuracy of welding parameters, including welding current, welding time, pressure, etc. Adjust welding current according to material thickness and type to ensure adequate heat input; Appropriately increase the welding time, so that the metal has enough time to reach the molten state; Ensure that there is sufficient pressure between the electrode and the workpiece to promote the effective transfer of heat; Secondly, it is necessary to regularly check and maintain the spot welder, regularly clean the oxide and welding residue on the electrode surface, maintain the cleanliness of the electrode, and ensure the normal operation of the equipment. In addition, the operator should master the correct welding skills, such as the control of welding speed and welding pressure.
2.Equipment failure
Problem: The spot welder may have equipment failures during operation, such as electrode head wear, power supply failure, gas path failure, etc.
Solution: For electrode head wear, the worn electrode head can be checked regularly and replaced in time, and the electrode material with high temperature resistance and wear resistance can be selected according to the characteristics of the welding material. For power failure, you can ask professional maintenance personnel to repair. For gas path failures, you can check whether the gas path connection is normal, whether the air pressure is stable, and whether the gas path components are damaged.
Problem: There are certain safety risks in the operation of spot welder, such as electric shock, scalding, fire and so on.
Solution: First of all, the operator should strictly abide by the operating procedures, wear personal protective equipment, such as insulation gloves, protective glasses, etc. Secondly, it is necessary to carry out regular safety checks on the spot welder to ensure that the safety protection measures of the equipment are intact. In addition, regular safety training should be conducted for operators to improve their safety awareness.
4.Production efficiency
Problem: The spot welder may have low production efficiency in the production process.
Solution: First of all, you can improve the welding speed by optimizing the welding parameters, thus improving the production efficiency. Secondly, it can reduce manual operation and improve production efficiency by introducing automation equipment, such as automatic feeders and robots. In addition, it can also improve the operational skills of operators through training, reduce operational errors, and improve production efficiency.

5.Environmental protection
Problem: spot welder in the welding process may produce noise, smoke and other environmental pollution problems.
Solution: For noise problems, soundproofing facilities can be installed in the workshop to reduce the impact of noise on the operator. For the problem of smoke, smoking equipment can be installed above the spot welder to discharge the smoke generated during the welding process in time.

In short, the spot welder may encounter various problems in the operation process, but as long as we have the right solution, we can ensure the normal operation of the spot welder, improve production efficiency, and ensure the safety of the operator.
