Searching through the many different Tig welders available you may occasionally see one that has an advanced AC wave function. This type of AC wave has been around for some time in high end European tig welding equipment however it has been at a very high price. A 16 years young Australian company has been pioneering Chinese welding equipment for over a decade and has launched such machines this week for under $1600Aud. This is not a misprint. The new range of Metalmaster welding machines are available either without plasma […]
During TIG welding processes heat builds in the TIG torch. A TIG welder water cooler is used to remove this heat. TIG water coolers are a self contained unit that re made of an electric motor, a pump, a fan, a radiator and a holding tank or reservoir. TIG Water Cooler Operation Contrary to what you may think, the pump sucks water from the torch thus creating a low pressure zone in the TIG torch water return line. Atmospheric pressure forces water from the reservoir to rush toward the low pressure zone in order to establish equilibrium. As the […]
Low cost due to high production numbers has seen an expansion in the availability of inverter welders. Ask any welding fabricator and they will tell you an inverter based machine will increase productivity in the workplace. You will find Inverter welding machines are prolific and dominate the metalworking trades for this reason and also the reduced capitalisation cost to get them to the welding operator. Some of the latest features that make these machines the best choice for not only industrial purposes but also for home workshops are the full […]
Hot work accidents are responsible for numerous serious injuries and deaths around the world. Before commencing any hot work a hazard identification audit must be conducted along with the drafting of a work method statement by a competent person. Preparation for any welding task is paramount to the safety of the welder, their equipment and other people in the vicinity of the work. A few minutes of consideration as to the dangers of the welding task will always be in the welders favour, spend a minute to save your life.
You may find yourself welding on the weekend with your trusty mig welding machine but something just isn’t right. You are getting lots of welding spatter and your best mate, the welding guru is out of town, what do you do? Well there are a few things that can be undertaken to remedy the situation. 1. Increase the MIG welding voltage Try to reduce the spatter by adjusting the voltage of the machine. Voltage is closely linked to the welding arc’s length and the heat input of the weld. Find […]
A Multi Process welding helmet allows the welder a greater degree of freedom over traditional automatic welding helmets. Firstly it is still considered to be an automatic welding mask however it can be used for welding, plasma cutting and grinding operations. Whether you need to tig mig weld, mma weld, do some plasma cutting or grinding you will find these digital multi process welding helmets are a convenience. Call our staff on 1300 881 991 if you have more questions.
The latest in Pulse Tig Welders is available from Tokentools. We have different models available in DC Pulse Tig welder such as the TIG160P and the TIG200P. In the ACDC welder range we have our AC DC Pulse Tig welders available in standard ACDC Tig or Multi Process Tig Welder. Pulse Tig welders vary the amount of current during the welding process. They use a peak welding current to perform the fusion process and a background welding current to allow the material to rest and solidify between pulse welding cycles. […]
In order to increase productivity whilst working with circular objects you should consider adding our welding positioner to your tool collection. A quality built unit featuring a digital programmable controller that will control the welding rotational angle, the dwell time and repeat. Need to weld 45 rotational degrees? No problem, just key it in and push down on the foot control. Whilst you are welding the controller measures out the 45 degree rotation and stops. You can obtain a consistent weld without the need to move your tig welding torch […]
WHAT IS PLASMA CUTTING? Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals of different thicknesses (or sometimes other materials) using a plasma torch. In this process compressed air is blown at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time an electrical arc is formed through that gas from the nozzle to the surface being cut, turning some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently fast to blow molten metal away […]
WHAT IS ARC WELDING? Arc or MMA (Manual Metal Arc) Welding is the oldest example of currently used electric welding procedures, and perhaps the most straight forward to use and understand. The principle of arc welding is simple; a relatively large current is passed through a welding rod (or filler rod) of the appropriate metal (Mild steel for welding steel etc.) and a circuit is completed through it when it comes into contact with the earthed metal being welded. The join between the welding rod and the work being welded […]
MIG Welding guide GUIDE TO MIG WELDING This is a free basic guide on how to weld using a metal inert gas (MIG) welder. MIG welding is the process of using electricity to melt and join pieces of metal together. MIG welding is generally regarded as one of the easiest type of welding to learn. Welding is a skill that needs to be developed over time, with a piece of metal in front of you Â suitable protection and a welding torch in your hands. 1. WHAT IS MIG WELDING? MIG welding was […]
The welder shortage has many employers asking where are all the welders? This is part of a broader scarcity of skilled tradespeople affecting many industries in Australia and most industrialised countries. Ironworkers, Electricians,machinists, sheet metalworkers, plumbers, pipe fitters and boilermakers are all in demand as production of industrial machinery continues near all-time levels. Some companies are having difficulties getting parts to build ships, bulldozers, rail cars, mining trucks and other industrial goods. Competition from less industrialised nations is forcing pressure upon manufacturers to shift production overseas. Where are all the […]
Do you know what IP21S is? That may seem like a meaningless acronym but for the engineers at Tokentools welding equipment supplies that denotes the level of protection the units have against water “ingress”. The units are certified for operation where occasional light dripping of water is possible. This is not a recommendation to operate in these conditions, but rather a protection standard set forth to standardize a minimum level of safety to the operator. Of course, any operation in wet or damp environments intentionally is simply stupid. Damage to […]
If you have purchased a Chinese inverter welder and have been using it on weekends, you should start to think aboutservicing your welder. It’s a critical part of protecting, and prolonging the power supply unit’s life. The most important part of servicing any unit is blowing it out, the dust that is. Yes, that’s right, it’s normal to open up your welding unit on a regular basis and blow it out. You will need to inspect things for overheating, rubbing, and general condition. We’ve seen many anecdotal cases over the years where […]
