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.
This quick guide will show you the correct way to install a water/liquid cooled harness using the iCAT setting bar (part number 980.2153).
In this blog we're going to focus on the 3 main topics concerning TIG torches & consumables, these are:
Topics: Aluminum Welding, Welding, Welding Consumables, Consumables, Metal Fabrication, Water-cooled, Air Cooled, liquid cooled, Torch Maintenance, TIG, TIG Welding, Gas Lens, Collet Body, TIG Torches, TIG Consumables, gas cooled, how to
When it comes to robotic mig welding you often have to ask the question about whether you should go air-cooled or water-cooled. It's always good to have the right tool in the right place for both optimal performance and cost. Basically, looking at water-cooled versus air cooled, there are obvious cases where you would choose one over the other.
