How we select these products
You maybe wonder how it is like this product. these products have been selected on the basis of the criteria defined by our teams of experts and the professionals working in the field. By combining these two we have made perfect criteria to select a building unit. For your interest and benefit, we are revealing these criteria here.
The voltage your welding unit consumes will determine different factors. The first is that will you be able to use your welding unit at different places. Secondly, it affects on the welding capacity of the welding unit. The welding of different metals requires different voltage inputs.
so this is important to consider the input voltage of the welding machine while making the decision to purchase it.
The functionality range of the welding machine
Some welding units used internal gas. While some use external gas. The external gas may be supplied through a cylinder. Again this will affect the portability of the machine. The second thing it will affect is the capacity of the machine to weld different metals. Depending on your own requirements in need please do consider this while purchasing the machine.
The weight and the size of the machine affect its portability. Depending on your nature of the work. You are the best judge to determine whether you want a portable machine for a heavy-duty machine.
Every mattel requires a different temperature for welding. It depends that how much power the welding machine can exert on the metal. Depending on the nature of the metals you need to weld. You should choose as per your requirement. You cannot ignore this factor while purchasing the welding machine.
sometimes you need to fix extra accessories with your welding machine. The most common of these accessories are the spool gun. particular you need this gun while you are welding the aluminum. This is important to consider that all welding machine cannot adjust the spool gun. If you need to weld a metal which requires extra Spool gun. Be sure to check your welding machine for this option
Warranty and manufacture
Sometimes this is not the unavailability of the thing which creates the problem. Actually this is the abundant availability of the thing that makes the choice difficult. If any of the products have the same specification. And they are available at compatible prices. Then this will really be a difficult choice for you to make.
Let me give you a tip in this situation. If you’re stuck in a situation like that. Then simply go for the well-known brand. Just check the repetition of the brand. Another criterion to be considered in this situation is the warranty terms and conditions with the time period the manufacturer is offering.
Product with the well-known brand and with the longest period of warranty should be preferred in this situation. Usually, the well-known brands are really very touchy about their reputation. This is the reason that the products from a specific and well-known brand usually perform well.
One of the important factors while selecting the welding machine is the duty cycle. If you are new to welding then and you should understand this concept. For the beginners, I will illustrate this concept here. if you are a professional or know about the duty cycle or ready please skip this next paragraph.
The duty cycle means that how much time is required by the welding unit to be prepared for the next welding. Usually, the reference used is an interval of 10 minutes. The duty cycle is quoted in the form of a percentage. 60% duty cycle means that for a given time interval of 10 minutes. The welding machine can continuously weld for 6 minutes. After the welding of 6 minutes, it required minutes of rest. The duty cycle of 40% means that the welding machine can continuously wealth for 4 minutes. After the continuous work of 4 minutes, the welding machine requires a rest of 6 minutes.
Depending upon the working load this is really really very important point to consider while purchasing a welding machine.
Last but not least. It is the price. Depending upon your budget and your requirements try to find an equivalence point between both. Please remember that this is not always true that the expensive machine can work better.
Welding is a risky process to do so please take precautionary measures. Some of the important precautionary measures are described here.
- Double-check the machine before starting the building
- This is really important to prepare the surface before welding.
- If there is any dust on the surface please clean it first.
- Please check there should not be any flammable material near your welding site.
- During welding please wear safety gadgets.
