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.

Welding Torch Diffusors: Copper vs. Brass

Posted by Robin Reips on Feb 19, 2018 11:17:10 AM

We often see different materials used for welding torches and their consumables. Mostly you can see Brass and Copper or Copper alloy - depending on the needs. Since there are various Copper alloys, we focus on the Copper Alloy: CuCr1Zr. Remember also that Brass, which is known as an alloy from Copper and Zinc, has many variations, as well. We will work with an example here.

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.

3 Problems with Contact Tips (and How to Solve Them)

Posted by Dave Detmer on Dec 8, 2017 4:06:13 PM

Usually when I'm meeting with a Foreman or Production Manager and get a chance to talk first hand to his or her welders, one of the most common topics that come up is their contact tips. The problem:  they have to change them too much. This kills productivity for the shop, takes a big bite out of cost, and generally just creates a less efficient atmosphere for the welder to work in.

So why are your contact tips not lasting? And what are the problems that cause the contact tips to fail? How do you prevent them? I'm going to go through below the 3 most common contact tip problems I run across on a day to day basis, and how typically you can overcome those problems.

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:

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.

Understanding Contact Tips

Posted by Matthew Sciannella on Mar 10, 2017 9:58:05 AM

Contact tips are highly misunderstood components in a welding gun setup. Choosing the correct contact tip for your welding application and understanding how to keep it performing at its best are just as critical as anything else needed to produce a quality weld.
