Resistance welding is a process where two pieces of steel wire are joined by applying pressure and passing an electrical current through the metal to create welded wire forms. The wires are fused together. The pressure, current, cycle time, and hold time, are important parameters. Resistance welding is an economical form of welding as no additional materials are required. Once the parameters are set, wire forms are placed in a fixture to hold the wires in place. An operator will press a foot pedal causing the electrodes to come down onto the wires and fuse them together.
We rely on our many years of experience as a wire and steel fabricator and our team of engineers to develop welds that will optimize manufacturing your welded wire forms, all based on your specifications. Designing the welds and manufacturing process is a collaborative approach among our design, production, quality control, and automation engineers. These processes are influenced by many factors, including, the type of weld used, selection of equipment, weld fixtures used, production run size, and other factors that we have developed over many years to save you time and money.
MIG welding is a process where an electric arc is used to form a weld. A feed wire is passed through a welding gun to create a spark and then melts to join the wires and create a welded wire form. MIG welding is very versatile and can be used on a wide range of steel wire and sheet metal. It is also a relatively fast and simple process. We use MIG welding every day to create welded wire products.
TIG welding is also an electric arc welding process. A tungsten electrode heats the metal and a gas protects the weld from contaminants. Controlling the torch and keeping it close to the welded material is important to forming a good weld. With TIG welding, you can create more precise welds, however, a greater degree of skill is required. TIG welds provide a cleaner look than MIG welds with less spatter. For welded wire products where a cosmetic weld is important, a TIG weld is usually used.
Our robotic welder can handle large volume production.
Our MIG welders provide efficient welding solutions.
We use our TIG welders for clean, cosmetic welds.

Combination of Welds
For most of our products we use a combination of resistance welds, MIG welds, and TIG welds to create welded wire products.
Choosing the right types of welds is an important part of ensuring a successful wire product. Pronto is an experienced metal fabricator, so our engineers select from resistance welds, MIG welds, and TIG welds depending on how the welded wire product will be used.
Each one of the welds that we work with has advantages. Contact us for more information on the types of welds that we use or that are best for specific welded wire forms. Metal fabrication is our passion!
From small runs to large volume production, we have the right solutions for you.
