Aluminum welding beginner
Greetings from Schweißfan
Aluminum welding beginner
My absolute favorite topic is welding aluminum, you want to get started and I have a few tips for you here.
The quickest and easiest tip is really to check out my YouTube channel and my Instagram channel where I give lots of tips and tricks on aluminum welding,
because it’s exactly what I like to do best and I do it every day.
So what are my tips for achieving better results when welding aluminum?
In my opinion, most people weld with too little amperage because they are afraid. Just give it a try. Take a sheet of metal, drill a hole through it and just feel your way around to get a feel for how many amps you really need for welding.
The right electrode is also important, here I recommend a green tungsten electrode and a really cool guy won’t grind it. Leave them completely straight.
Of course, burner maintenance is also an important topic that can make things even easier for you. To explain this, it’s really easiest to check out my channel where you can see how I sweat.
This tip sounds very banal, but I think it’s always an important one. Make the whole thing as easy as possible for yourself, align what you want to weld as simply as possible. Don’t put too much weight on your wrist when welding, i.e. position your hosepack so that you can work easily and lightly.
For aluminum welding beginners, cleanliness is the be-all and end-all. Make sure that the part you want to weld is nice and clean. What can you use for this? A simple wire brush and acetone for cleaning with a cloth!
When I started welding, the beautiful scaling didn’t always work so well. I then used the 3.2 ALMg5 filler material, which worked a lot better. You could also try again, i.e. you can weld a little more slowly.
Yes, and the most important thing is to practise practise practise… Test your welding machine, take a pen and a piece of paper and write down the setting that works well for you. That also helped me a lot at the beginning, you can’t remember all the settings.
I hope I was able to help you with the tips. Please forward this post to your friends who also want to learn aluminum welding and follow my channels on Instagram and YouTube where you will get even more input.
