Welding supplies are an essential part of any welding business. Along with your welding machine you need to have the proper equipment to be able to be successful. Some of this equipment includes welding caps, and welding helmet, and good welding clothing. The difficult part is trying to find a place where you can get this and get reasonable price at the same time. Fortunately you don’t have to look further into more.
First with aluminum we will set our Welding Machine China to AC meaning alternating current. Make sure your tungsten is sticking no more than one diameter of the electrode out of the cup in the torch. Make sure you clean your workpiece with a clean stainless steel wire brush. Now I use the green tip tungsten for more economical use. Tip is green letting you know the type of tungsten it is. Green means pure-tungsten in this application on how to weld aluminum.
But don’t go around town saying that you can do or are doing MMAW welding or that you are doing manual metal arc welding. People will look at you and think you are a few beers short of a six pack.
TIG welding is known for the weld quality it produces. It is also the most difficult process to operate and requires a lot of skill. The main attraction of TIG welding is it can weld any known metal. More commonly this welding process is used in places that require extremely high quality welds or on exotic metals like titanium.
When two or more pieces of metal are consolidate together is known as welding. The classifications of welding are Mig, Tig and Arc welders. Today you will be learning about the usage of Mig welders and merits and demerits.
Make sure that the mig welding wire diameter fits the right sized grove in the feed roller. When running a precision welding wire you need to use the right feed roller groove for the correct diameter sized mig wire.
Mig welding duty cycle will also vary between machines. In a nut shell you want a machine that has a higher rated duty cycle value. This will mean that it can weld longer than a machine will less duty cycle.
Flux cored arc welding it is not really another welding process. This process is nothing more than a different filler metal or wire used in a MIG welding machine. It is the fastest of the most common welding processes used today. For that reason it is typically used anyplace that needs massive amounts of welds like in shipyards. The metal that it welds best is steel. There are current developments for other alloys and metals but steel is the most widely welded metal with this process.
