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.

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.

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.

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.
