    WHY DO I BLOW HOLES WHEN MIG WELDING?

    The action of DIP transfer welding is very aggressive as the process requires the wire to "short circuit"  onto the material to generate the explosion and create heat. These explosions mean that once the weld pool is developed the wire is then dipping into a liquid pool. If this  pool then becomes too runny the dipping of the wire creates a popping effect much like a needle popping a balloon and this can pop it causing a hole.

  • Tungsten electrodes -Which one to choose?

    Tungsten Electrodes Guidelines

    TIG welding is an arc process whereby you create the arc with an electrode and add the filler wire by hand. The electrode used is made of tungsten which is a rare metallic element. Tungsten has the highest melting point of any metal, 3,410 °C

    Tungsten electrodes come in a varying degree of sizes depending on the material you want to weld and the welding current you want to use.

    Each electrode is colour coded to eliminate any confusion and it appears at the end of the electrode.

  • MIG MAG Welding Spray Transfer
    February 18, 2020

    What Is Spray Arc Welding

     Spray or droplet welding is a type of welding where the welding wire doesn't short with the material ie it doesn't touch. The plasma arc is so high that droplets are melted off the wire and transferred or dropped onto the workpiece.

    February 17, 2020

    What is Dip Transfer Welding?

    The welding wire is essentially a fuse,  the same as in a mains electrical box that is designed to “blow” at a certain current (amps).  On the front of the welding machine is a voltage switch that enables you to select different voltage settings. The lower the voltage the lower the explosion of the wire, the higher the voltage the higher the explosion.

    What does Synergic Mean on a Welder?

    We often hear the word synergic when related to welding equipment, but what does it mean? Synergic means the interaction of elements and parameters to form a single control.  Or to put it bluntly, single knob or button operation.   On...

    How to Fit a Teflon Liner In a MIG Torch

    MIG MAG welding is an arc process and therefore any welder can be set up to weld aluminium but due to the softness of the welding wire and the problem of cross-contamination, it's not possible to use a normal steel liner as found in your MIG torch. Here we go through the installation and setup of a Carbon Teflon liner in a Binzel Type MIG torch with Euro adapter connection.
