    Electrical resistance welding is commonly used in industries where light sheet metal is bonded. The process uses a combination of heat and pressure to form the weld, which frequently results in the production of high-velocity metal-fragment projectiles. The process is described and case studies are presented to illustrate the nature of the injuries which occasionally result from these missiles. The difficulties in preventing these injuries and potential approaches for doing so are discussed.
