Yamaichi Uses Resistance Welding Technology
Resistance-welded metals.
Munich, Germany — Yamaichi Electronics is using the relatively new technology of resistance welding in its Frankfurt (Oder) plant to implement perfect contacts with the lowest possible contact resistance for customers with special requirements. This technology is used in the company's hermetically sealed photovoltaic junction boxes for solar panels, among other places.

As an innovative provider of technical solutions for electrical connections, the company's products and machining processes must always represent cutting-edge state-of-the-art technology. This permits fast, flexible response to customer needs.

The resistance welding process is a relatively new technology, but one that is ever more frequently used. It permits contacting to be made without additional material such as solder or contacts — thus reducing contact resistance and preventing corrosion. Fully automated processing of large lot sizes.

Wires are cut fully automatically, their insulation stripped and inserted into the compacting unit. Large lots can be produced fully automatically with no problems.

A manual compactor that can be used flexibly also permits the fabrication of customer-specific small lots at very low cost in terms of time and investment. Cut and stripped wires are fed manually in this process.
