BINZEL BASICS: Air-cooled MIG Welding Torch Maintenance Tips

Posted by Danny Seddon on Mar 6, 2018 1:27:51 PM

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 Fume Extraction Torches (and How to Overcome Them)

Posted by Etienne Blouin on Dec 29, 2017 8:26:00 AM

We get it, not everyone loves fume extraction torches. For one reason of another, whether you're a welder or a welding engineer or a project manager, the same problems or complaints come up when it comes to fume guns.

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.

Why Should You Use a Premium Torch?

When I meet a customer for the first time I like to ask them first and foremost about the torches they currently use. Most of the time they answer the question something like this:

Water-cooled Welding MIG Maintenance Tips

Posted by John Esposito on Jul 6, 2017 8:16:24 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.

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.

How Delta's Design Delivers Value

Posted by John Esposito on Mar 21, 2017 1:56:00 PM

When deciding on a new welding torch, value is everything. Value means you are getting the best performance, the easiest maintenance, and most comfortable usage for your competitive purchasing dollars. And when considering what value is when you’re looking at all the MIG gun options out there to try, superior design will deliver that value time and again. And if that design comes from the very same kind people who will end up using the final product, then you know you have a welding gun that was designed with the welder in mind.

How to Repair Your MB Series BIKOX Cable

Posted by James Study on Mar 17, 2017 12:17:17 PM

If you weld with an ABICOR BINZEL air-cooled MIG gun, like the MB series, you're likely welding with the ultra-lightweight and durable BIKOX® cable. Like all cables, they can become damaged from wear and tear in and around the production plant, and might need a little tender loving care to get them back to working in the optimal manner.
