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 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.

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:

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.

Properties of Metal

Posted by John Esposito on Mar 9, 2017 12:00:00 PM

It is very important to be familiar with the physical property of metals. It’s just as important to know the terms and measurements used to identify them, as well. There are three classifications of common properties – all of which are used to define metal. They are:

Air-cooled vs. Water-cooled MIG Guns

Posted by Dustin Gordon on Mar 3, 2017 8:48:14 AM

Let’s begin by understanding duty cycle. We all know what it is, but just for a quick refresh:  Duty cycle is a rating measurement of 10 minute increments using CO2 gas.  So, if we take a 350 amp gun as an example – that means at it’s maximum it can weld 10 minutes at 350 amps with a constant current using CO2 gas.

Wire Liner Types & Best Practices

Posted by Paul Pfingston on Feb 27, 2017 1:21:46 PM

In today’s environment it is absolutely critical to minimize downtime and operate in the most efficient manner. Reasons for downtime are many and varied, particularly in the welding fabrication field. Grounding problems, gas leaks, contaminated material, machinery malfunction and worn components represent a few of the many issues confronted. In MIG welding, one of the most frustrating is wire feed problems and wire liner issues in general.
