We are often asked about the upslope setting on a Tig welder, how does it work and what is it used for. Upslope is a control that allows the amperage to rise (slope up) over the period of time set for this setting.
For example if you had set 5 seconds with an amperage of 120 Amps upon triggering the tig torch trigger the weld current would initially ignite at the minimum crater value and then increase gradually over the 5 second time period. If your drew a graph of amperage on the Y axis and time on the X axis you would see a line sloping up hence the name “Up Slope”
