Overview

There is a global need to increase productivity, while reducing labor and equipment costs for projection welding and hot stamp (press hardened material) for aluminum, advanced high-strength steel and exotic metals.

This presentation will expound on innovative and new technology that meets that need. The features and benefits of the newest fast rise welding technology, developed by RoMan Manufacturing®-FRT-MFDC will be presented. Both, older Capacitive Discharge Welding (CDW) technology and the new FRT-MFDC technology will be explained and compared.
