Electronic spot-welding device for modelling

spot-welding.jpgThanks to Francesco for this one, he highlights a specially developed spot-welding device:

“This electronic spot-welding device has been specially developed for producing assemblies from steel wire,” he writes. “The point where the wires meet is fixed together using a pair of pliers whose tips take the form of welding contacts; when the start switch is pressed, the joint is firmly welded together. During the welding process a current of up to 2500 A flows through the contacts for a few thousands of a second.”
