Abstract

This spot welding method is a method for joining workpieces being a layered body of three or more metal sheets by supplying welding current. The welding current has a pulse-like waveform wherein a peak state in which the current reaches or is maintained to be within a set peak current range and a non-peak state in which the current is lowered from the peak current range to a set bottom current, and is then increased toward the peak current range again are alternately achieved. In the non-peak state, in the case where an effective value Irms of the welding current is lowered, and reaches a predetermined effective value target range, a current control process for increasing the welding current toward the peak current range is started.

Abstract

In a parking lock system, a link member that swings due to sliding of an operating shaft so as to make a perking lock operate and release the operation includes a counterweight for canceling out axial inertial force of the operating shaft. Therefore, even if the operating shaft attempts to slide in an axial direction with respect to a transmission case due to inertial force when a vehicle experiences sudden deceleration due to a frontal collision or sudden braking, mass of the counterweight resists the inertial force to thus prevent the link member from swinging, thereby making it possible to avoid a situation in which the parking lock is operated unintentionally.

Abstract

A spatter production information storage unit (16) stores spots where spatter has been produced. For the spots where spatter has been produced, a comparison information generation unit (34) acquires weld design information stored in a design information storage unit (12) and weld instruction information stored in an instruction information storage unit (14), compares both pieces of information, and generates comparison information (28B). An image information output unit (38) outputs the generated comparison information (28B) to a display device (24). The display device (24) displays the comparison information (28B) on a screen (26) so as to allow checking by an operator. According to the present invention, it is possible to check, on the screen (26), comparison information for weld instruction information and weld design information highly likely as a cause for spatter being produced. It is therefore possible to efficiently perform the task of analyzing the causes for spatter being produced.
