Duty cycle in its shortest explanation means how long a welding machine will weld at a given current before it over-heats.
Duty Cycle is listed on the machines data plate and usually you will see 20-25-30% 60% and 100%
Lets look at a welders specification plate and what it means!
Illustrating the shear strength of a spot weld compared to a MIG plug weld in THLE Steel ( very high elastic limit MPa = 400 <Re <600 MPa).
The test, In this case, illustrated that the spot weld had an Ultimate Tensile Strength of 3261Kg compared to 1294Kg for an 8mm MIG plug weld.
The test highlights that if performed correctly a spotweld is, in fact, stronger than a MIG weld in THLE steel at a thickness of 2.5mm
