Welding

For a more crisp arc.V. Upon solidification and cooling. Arc force is a temporary increase of the output current during welding when the arc is too short. MMA Process MMA (Manual Metal Arc Welding) is one of several fusion Manual Metal Arc Welding processes for joining metals. a stick electrode also produces a covering for the arc and the molten pool with a protective shield of gas. FEATURES Arc Force Arc voltage (V) This prevents the electrode from sticking during welding. Base metal Solidified metal Metals at high temperatures tend to adversely react with elements in the air . with more penetration. Therefore. This shielding prevents or minimizes contact of the molten metal with air. set the knob to minimum (Rutile. If a short circuit does occur. The electrode consists of compressed graphite and alloys with a copper coating. it will be easy to remove the electrode from the work piece and the electrode gun and cable will remain undamaged. O. vapor. time after time. as well as a filler metal. It also enhances simple position welding making the job easier. It also serves as a safety device in protecting the operator. Hot Start provides excellent arc ignition without the electrode sticking and avoiding any metallurgical default in the weld. It makes use of a special electrode gun which directs a violent jet of compressed air on the electric arc area removing the molten material. Welding direction a strong metallurgical bond is created. . cast iron and copper alloys.C. and slag. The intense heat Coating Shielding atmosphere needed to melt the metals is produced by an electric arc. In order to produce an Welding current (A) Adjustable arc force control outstanding weld performance on a variety of electrodes (Rutile. metal at the joint between two parts is melted and caused to intermix with an intermediate molten filler metal.oxygen and nitrogen. in this case Electrode core provided by a Stick electrode. this helps ignite the arc quickly and reliably. This is called arc shielding. Arc Molten slag An arc is formed between the work and a stick electrode as Molten metal Solidified slag a current is conducted through them. Hot Start This is the temporary increase of the output current (0. Air arc gouging An industrial stick welder with adequate power and voltage load can be used to cut and perform surface removal. Basic). Basic or Cellulose) the Arc Force can be finely adjusted with a simple knob. To have a smooth arc with less spatter. This includes cutting grooves and removing cracks on steel. Arc Force Control Lincoln machines have been developed with special features to aid the welder in producing superior welds. By applying intense heat. set it to maximum.5s) during the start of a weld. This feature supports production with consistently excellent arc performance. Anti-sticking This electronic device minimizes the short circuit current in the event of the electrode sticking to the work piece for a prolonged period. This process is known as Air Carbon Arc Cutting or ARC AIR gouging.
