Title: JOINING COMPONENTS BY MEANS OF RESISTANCE WELDING
Abstract:
A welding device (1) for joining components by means of resistance welding is proposed, comprising: - a pair of electrodes (15), by means of which an electrode force (21) and an electrical welding current IS1 can be introduced into the components, - at least one further pair of electrodes (17), by means of which an electrode force (23) and a further electrical welding current IS2 can be introduced into the components, - a power source (19), by means of which the electrode forces (21, 23) can be generated, - a coupling link (35), which is mechanically connected between the power source (19) and the pairs of electrodes (15, 17) and by means of which a total electrode force (27) that can be generated by the power source (19) can be divided into the electrode force (21) and the further electrode force (23).
