BINZEL BASICS: Water-cooled Welding MIG Maintenance Tips

Posted by John Esposito on Apr 23, 2019 8:38:28 AM

When you are going from air-cooled to water-cooled welding torches, the biggest component is water. Since water is a good conductor of electricity, it does pose a threat as far as electrical hazards; whether it's to the welder itself, or to nearby workers, depending on if there is water on the floor. So when you're proposing water-cooled equipment, the maintenance is extremely important. You should be on a regular maintenance schedule. Starting from the water cooler and working our way to the torch, let's go through some steps that should be a part of your regular maintenance schedule.

During my years as an Area Sales Manager, there was one question that I regularly got asked from our customers & welders:

"Danny, why am I going through an excessive amount of contact tips, gas nozzles, gas diffusors, tip adaptors & liners?"

The answer may be simple.

4 Problems with Lightweight MIG Torches (and How to Overcome Them)

Posted by Craig Rice on Dec 15, 2017 9:14:00 AM

Most lightweight welding torches are designed to last. Problem is, a lot of welders and welding professionals don’t believe it. There are ‘problems’ with lightweight torches – they can have a bad rap, or are misunderstood. Light doesn’t mean weak. In fact, a lot of times it’s just the opposite.

Welding with Fixtures

Posted by Mike Russell on Mar 24, 2017 9:56:00 AM

I've been in the welding industry for something going on 40 years. I've seen a lot, and to this day I still see a lot of welding operations out there that put some crazy contraptions on their welding fixtures to get their welds done. Some of them make sense for the applications, but a lot of times they're doing it to their own detriment.
