    Abstract: Aluminum alloy RSW is influenced by the low melting point and high thermal expansion rate of aluminum alloy materials. During the welding process, the electrode cap surface is prone to erosion, which affects the continuous welding number and welding quality of RSW. It is a difficult problem in the industry that restricts the application of aluminum... Show More
