Benefits of low-frequency pulse MIG welding

Summary

Benefits of low-frequency pulse MIG welding

· High deposition: When you need to get a good amount of material down into the weld, the action of this style of welding provides high deposition rates.

· Low spatter: Spatter can cause profitability problems as excess welding wire is thrown out of the weld adhering to the base metal requiring additional labor and grinding cost.

· Good penetration: When welding aluminum without a TIG welder, it's fairly common for the welder to have poor penetration into the weld out of fear that higher settings will promote burn-through on the material. Low-Frequency Pulse MIG welding provides adequate penetration while minimizing heat input to avoid burn-through.

· Weld out of position: Many welders have issues with welding out of position. With this type of welding, you can easily meet standards for welding overhead, on pipe and several other positions that can otherwise be problematic.

· Superior bead appearance: Because of the very neat appearance of the bead, material welded using this method is often mistaken for TIG welding.

· Faster speed: TIG welding tends to proceed at a much slower rate. This type of MIG welding can be accomplished much faster, keeping your production line moving.

· Distortion control: An issue with many thinner materials, this type of MIG welding works well in a number of automotive applications requiring the use of thinner and thinner materials to reduce weight. though not with body panels.
