AC waves in Aluminium Welders allow the process of fusing aluminium components together to occur. During the GTAW process the polarity of the welding arc changes and is either removing aluminium oxide from the surface (tungsten positive) or adding heat to the weld pool (tungsten negative) . The AC tig welding process is best for aluminium welders and is only slightly exceeded by hybrid wave processes that include a DC component. The latest Hybrid wave Tig process injects a small DC interlude between the AC cycle. When performing a weld on aluminium […]
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
Customers often ask what benefits AC DC Tig welders have when compared to the humble DC Tig welder. Depending on the model of Tig welder will dictate the optional settings however the main difference is the ability to weld aluminium. If you are in the USA, ok ALUMINUM. Alternating current or AC when used in an ACDC tig welding machine allows electrons to flow to and from in the welding arc. When the electrons flow from tungsten to job we get penetration, when the electrons flow from job to tungsten […]
You saw a Plasma Cutter in action and were instantly attracted to it’s potential right? It happens to most blokes. Plasma cutters are incredible machines and smart operators can put them to use to generate incoming work. The relatively low cost of plasma cutting equipment means that sales have increased year on year. In the last 12 months the amount of plasma cutters sold in Australia has increased by 37% over sales figures from the previous year. Plasma cutters work by ionising dry air in the torch head which adds […]

Your welding processes, like every other part of your business, offers opportunities toconserve resources. Consider these 10 money-saving tips for MIG gun care and maintenance as agood first step. And don’t be surprised when you find these tips improve your welding performance along the way! 1: Protect your assets Keep your nozzles, gas diffusers andcontact tips in the original package in which they were shipped until you are ready to use them. Doing so prevents scratches and/or dents where spatter can accumulate and cause the consumables to fail prematurely. […]
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 […]
New Synergic Mig Welder on a budget. Tokentools have released the long awaited upgrade to the Metalmaster 210D. The new welding machine model, named the Metalmaster 210S features Synergic welding functionality with integrated lift arc Tig welder and Arc welder. Synergic Mig welding machines provide incremental current pulses which form small droplets of similar sized molten material on the tip of the Welding wire combined with the other specific relationships necessary for stable wire burn off. These droplets detach and fall into the weld pool. Incremental current pulses are unique […]
