Abstract

Nowadays, spot-welding technologies are being used on a very wide range of applications. Spot-welded joints can be found in many pieces of equipment, such as toasters, computers, telephone batteries, or even in various pre-manufactured car elements. Given the prevalence of the technology, there may be a legitimate need for a machine that can be used at home for simple spot-welding operations. Such a device could be produced more cost-effectively than those currently available on the market, while using household electronic waste. These could be produced for hobby purposes, thus creating an opportunity to recycle certain types of household electronic waste, thereby improving sustainability in an engineering approach.
