Pre-Calculating Wire-Feed Speed, Travel Speed and …
Most welding professionals know the wire-feed speed (WFS), where a process runs well based on their experience, or can quickly get WFS from the manufacturer’s recommended procedures. However, determining how fast to travel for a particular size weld bead ends …
Years ago stick welding electrodes started the designation with the letter “E” and that stood for electrode. These days many rods only have a nuer on them. The first two nuers on the electrode refer to how strong the welding filler metal is. A 6010 electrode
How to Choose a Mig Welder or Plasma Cutter - ASE Deals
Arc welding, (AKA stick welding) is simple, straight forward and easy to learn. You can weld thick materials effectively using an electrode and an electric arc. Then mig welding came on the scene. Mig Welders use a wire feed instead of an electrode.
Arc Welding 101: CV or CC - What’s the difference?
On CV equipment the wire feed rate, wire diameter, and electrode stick-out draw current from the machine. Set at 28 V, your GMAW or FCAW equipment will set an arc length that will remain constant. As you increase wire feed speed or wire diameter, you will increase your welding current.
MIG Welding (GMAW - Gas Metal Arc Welding) Basics, …
How to MIG Weld Aluminum In MIG welding aluminum, a few adjustments will be necessary because this metal is softer.The feed wire will have to be larger. Power supply will have to be controlled more because aluminum is a better heat conductor. The electrode’s
MIG and Arc Welding: What''s the Difference?
MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding requires three things: electricity to produce heat, an electrode to fill the joint, and shielding gas to protect the weld from the air. MIG welders consist of a welding gun with a trigger that controls the feed of a small electrode. The wire is
Aluminum stick-welding vs MIG for different alloys, …
Aluminum stick-welding vs MIG for different alloys, thicknesses 01-22-2015, 06:28 PM I learned last year that electrodes are available for welding aluminum. I read some bashing of it on Metal Meet but thought I''d try it anyway. I''ve always used TIG and it''s been
Likely you need to decrease your arc length (if using stick/SMAW) or wire feed speed (if using MIG/GMAW) and/or increase your ''heat'' (current or voltage depending on the type of power supply you are using.) Until you have a stable arc, nothing else will matter
Which is better? Welding Jacket VS Apron - Info Articles …
MIG welding is a semi-automatic process where a wire is connected to direct current from the source. The wire acts as an electrode, and its primary purpose is to connect the two metals as it is passed through a welding gun. During this process, both inert gas and wire electrodes are simultaneously passed through a welding gun.
Our MIG Welding lineup features MIG welding machines that are capable of flux-cored welding and gas welding. Our MIG Welders are both 110v and 220v capable depending on the models and some even have PFC to enable welding when coined with a generator or where power stability is a factor.

Correct Contact Tip Recess Can Improve Welding …
In a MIG welding process, the contact tip is responsible for transferring the welding current to the wire as it passes through the bore, creating the arc. Optimally, the wire should feed through with minimal resistance while still maintaining electrical contact.

Minimizing Excessive Spatter in Stick Welding and Mig …
During mig welding, one of the most common causes of excessive spatter is using too much wire. If you’re getting spatter everywhere during a mig weld, try slowing down your wire feed speed. If that doesn’t work, the excessive spatter might be the result of arc blow, which occurs when magnetism in your base metal affects the quality of your arc.
How to Weld Cast Iron With a Wire Feed Welder | Our …
12/4/2017· Welding on cast iron is a bit different than welding on most other metals. Because of its chemical makeup, cast iron is very prone to cracking when heat is applied. Metals such as wrought iron or mild steel can simply be welded with minimal preparation. However

Gasless MIG Welder vs. Gas MIG Welder - uWelding
If you''re looking for appliions of welding that needs out of position welding, a gas MIG welder would be a better choice. For e.g., if you need to weld a metal vertically upwards, the flux cored wire shielded with gas would have a better coating that works well with solidifying the molten welded materials quicker.

Different Types of Welding Processes From TIG To Laser …
Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW or FCA) is a semi-automatic or automatic welding method in which a hollow wire electrode is fed through the welder’s gun and into the joint. Self-shielded flux-cored welding is different from MIG in that it doesn’t require an external shielding gas, such as CO2 or argon, t o defend the weld pool from oxidation and contamination.
