With your welding torch you have a variety of welding nozzle designs to choose from, and sometimes the decision on which to choose is not always clear.
In this blog we're going to focus on the 3 main topics concerning TIG torches & consumables, these are:
Topics: TIG, TIG Welding, Gas Lens, Collet Body, TIG Torches, TIG Consumables, Torch Maintenance, Welding Consumables, Aluminum Welding, liquid cooled, Air Cooled, Water-cooled, Metal Fabrication, Consumables, Welding, how to, gas cooled
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.
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.
Nozzle Dip, Aerosol Cans, Spray Bottles, Buckets, 55 gallon drums, Red, Blue, Green…. the options are endless in trying to determine what sort of anti-spatter to use.
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/MAG welding, one of the most frustrating is wire feed problems.
