Welding aluminum correctly
Hey sweat fan greetings,
How to weld aluminum correctly?
The question could also be posed differently, namely, what is the best way to start welding aluminum. It’s all about the right welding machine, the right settings and the right accessories.
Of course, first and foremost we need an ACDC welding machine that is capable of welding aluminum. But we also need the right tungsten electrode, the right filler material and the right settings for the welding machine.
For aluminum welding, for example, I use the green tungsten electrodes and usually the filler material ALMG5. It really almost always works and if it doesn’t, then the alsi12.
Then I definitely recommend the right burner accessories – we have summarized what we use every day in a box. With the best experience from 10 years of daily welding .
So maybe I would turn the balance more into the plus and the frequency in the range between 60 and 80 hz.
Oh in the beginning I would just take a 3 mm aluminum practice sheet and start practicing with that. In the beginning, it helped me to use a 3.2 filler material Oh because I was able to achieve the best scaling with this. (If you need metal sheets for practicing you are welcome to contact us)
Make sure that you are not too close to the welding part with your tungsten electrode, you can be 1/2 cm to centimeters away from your welding part with the needle.
I also think it is very important to always make sure that you can see the melting bath correctly. This is a really important point, lay out the things you are welding so that you can really see exactly what you need to see.
Of course, I have a cool YouTube video for exactly this question.
So then I hope I was able to help you with the article “Welding aluminum correctly”. I would be delighted to receive your feedback. And if you would like to find out and see more about welding, then take a look at our channels. Welding is a daily topic there.
