Suspended Spot Welding Controllers for Faster Welds
Suspended Spot Welding is an energy-efficient process for the joining of welding steel at different rotations and high temperatures. Welded metals usually have to undergo many passes of heating, cooling and quenching in order to create the desired joints. As a result, the joining process involves several energy dissipation processes. The use of a dedicated, directed-charge tip dresser minimizes energy usage during the process and improves performance during high-tempered situations.
The most common type of dedicated tip dressers is the TIG (torch-injected gas) torch. This is particularly suitable for high-powered torch welding machines since it produces more heat per minute than regular torches. In addition to being cost-effective, it is capable of producing a thicker and more polished finish with a smoother arc. The TIG torch, with its dedicated high-energy output, also produces higher temperatures and larger bubbles. In short, it is suitable for working with all types of metals, although you should use a TIG torch for Suspended Spot Welding when the joint to be welded is very cold.
The TIG welder has the following features: very high weld quality and excellent heat conductivity; excellent dimensional stability; low profile; low heat flux; good plastic and rubber fusion properties; good conductivity to metal and non-metal parts; excellent electrical and mechanical properties; and easy cleaning. It is primarily used for welding aluminum, stainless steel, copper, brass, and zinc. The MIG welder is another common type which uses a metal inert gas to induce welding current instead of tungsten or flux. It produces a smooth, clean, and stable weld.
The TIG and MIG are also available as ready-to-use kits. The MIG is widely used while TIG is more suitable for work with thinner materials like aluminum or small fiberglass items. Because of their different characteristics, it is important to choose the correct equipment that matches the right job. Selecting the wrong equipment can lead to poor welds and even lead to the failure of the welding process altogether.
When selecting a welding controller for your work, there are several important factors to consider. One is to match up with the actual welding process you’re going to use. If you need a very fast and efficient welding current, a smaller power supply will be required. The maximum wattage rating of a controller is around 600 watts. Remember, the more watts the welder uses, the faster the weld is completed.
Depending on how much wire you’re going to use, check the wire feed capability of the weld gun. The higher the wire diameter, the lower the current rating of the actual welding guns. Using a suspend spot welding controller can make welding easier and faster. And with the right welding guns and an inert gas, you’ll get the best welding job.
