ArcReach® technology is an investment that results in a lot of time saved during welding operations. With most welding equipment the operator needs to walk back and forth to adjust output voltage – sometimes over hundreds of feet – multiple times during a job. This results in hundreds of wasted hours and thousands of lost dollars over the course of a large project.
ArcReach technology enables welders to adjust the voltage settings right at the point of welding
ArcReach technology enables welders to adjust the voltage settings right at the point of welding instead of walking all the way to the power source and back. Even worse, if the voltage settings are “just good enough”, the operator might not bother making the trip, resulting in lower quality welds. (more…)
To begin with, different electrodes have different colored bands that are used to identify them. However, there are several other important differences to consider when selecting a tungsten. Here some of the various types with the respective characteristics: (more…)
When MIG welding was first invented, it used a constant voltage source of electricity for the arc. While this method is still used today, the invention of pulsed MIG (or MIG pulse) welding has allowed welders to realize several advantages over conventional MIG welding, several are listed below: (more…)
