Industrial Vending Reduces Cost

Industrial Vending Reduces Cost

Reduce Inventory, Consumption, PO’s and Headaches Reduce inventory of abrasives, gloves/PPE supplies, and welding supplies by 15% to 20% (conservatively) with industrial vending. For a company spending $20,000 annually on these items, that results in $3,000 to $4,000...
Sequential Pulsed MIG for Aluminum

Sequential Pulsed MIG for Aluminum

A High Speed Option to Ultra Slow TIG Traditionally, GTAW lends itself well to the welding of thin gauge aluminum.  On AC polarity, the operator easily strikes a balance between oxide surface cleaning and penetration. Second, the operator controls heat input...
Digital Square Wave AC Output

Digital Square Wave AC Output

The Future of Submerged Arc Welding In Colorado, constant voltage (CV) DC polarity is still used in most submerged arc (sub-arc) applications. It is still used, in large part, because the systems are old and robust, living long lives. Reverse (DC+) polarity is most...
Power Mode GMAW For Sheet Metal Fabrication

Power Mode GMAW For Sheet Metal Fabrication

A Better Way to MIG Weld Sheet Metal Power Mode, a Lincoln Electric GMAW technology, has been around since 2001. It is on all the PowerWave series machines. For instance, it is on the Invertec V350 (with advanced pulse panel) and the more affordable PowerMIG 350 MP....
Modified Short Circuit MIG For Open Root Pipe

Modified Short Circuit MIG For Open Root Pipe

X-Ray Quality Welds, Fast For some time, the preferred method of open root pipe welding has been a cellulosic stick electrode (6010) for the root pass or a low hydrogen rod (7018) on the fill/cap passes. However, stick welding pipe has notoriously low arc-on-time and...
Inverter Advantages

Inverter Advantages

Arc Stability Inverter power sources have been around for decades. As reliability now equals that of the older transformer rectifier (TR) design, they are more popular than ever.  One reason is superior arc quality.  TR DC output is rectified from 60 Hz AC...
