Resistance welding uses current and pressure are used to bond two pieces of metal. Pressure is used to hold two pieces of metal together while they are cooling, allowing the metals to properly bond together. Projections, or weld nibs, are low thermal mass islands which allow weld current and force to be focused into a small area to produce heat at the desired weld location. Projection welding can extend electrode life by increasing the electrode contact area and decreasing the current density at the surface of the electrode, and is effective even if the weldments are thick. Weld nuts feature equally sized and spaced projections (three for hexagon, four for square nuts) to ensure a properly balanced and positioned weld. They are intended for through-hole applications. Hexagon weld nuts (DIN 929) are self-locating, whereas square weld nuts (DIN 928) require additional jigging. Weld nuts do not have surface treatment, as this would be detrimental to the welding process.
