There are a handful of welding methods that blacksmiths and forgers commonly use, including Tig, Mig, Oxyacetylene, and Stick. TIG stands for Tungsten Inert Gas that produces heating through an arc of electrical energy to the steel or metal surface you intend to weld. TIG welding stainless steel settings or metal welding settings consist of different configurations.
Setting up a TIG welder for stainless steel welding is a tricky process that you must know before you buy your best TIG welder. Here, we are going to explain the procedure for TIG welding settings for steel and aluminum, or more specifically,
a) Setting up the TIG welding b) Changing settings, settings for GAS, and maximum amperage c) Setting up the aluminum welding d) Changing settings, settings for GAS, AC Frequency, Pulser, and maximum amperage
Stainless Steel Settings for TIG Welding
Every time you transit between from aluminum to steel, you need to change the setup. Follow the TIG welding settings for stainless steel below:
Step 1: Changing Settings
Turn on the machine and the rear panel
Tap the bottom row buttons
An LED green light will ensure you the chosen option
Some of the options need amperage knob and result display
Set the polarity settings to DC
Later, check the process control and set to TIG HF Impulse
You need to enable the foot pedal by setting the output option to RMT STD
Step 2: Setting GAS/DIG
To set this ,choose GAS/DIG to Post Flow
Twirl the amperage knob and select the option Auto
Weldpro's flagship 200 amp AC/DC TIG welder that goes beyond simply welding steel and aluminum.
The model 200 is also a digital designed TIG welder equipped with full function TIG welding features found on machines priced much higher.
Start and end amps, upslope, downslope, fully adjustable pulse, AC balance, AC frequency. 2T-4T
Excellent Professional design rocker style foot pedal without annoying intermediate amperage control. And now available with the optional CK Worldwide superflex cable and flex head number 17F torch with independent trigger switch.
Also fully capable MMA stick welding function with stinger included.
Push the ‘A’ button turn the amperage knob to maximum
Use the foot pedal to control the amperage from 0 to maximum numbers
Per 0.001 material thickness, start with one amperage number, for instance, per 1/8-inch or 0.125-inch material, you should start with 125 amps
To conclude, as part of knowing how to set up a tig welder, you have now surely realized that TIG welding stainless steel settings is a complicated and tricky process; just like using a MIG welder. Gas flow, arc length, and amperage are a few essential factors related to this process. Make sure these parts operate correctly for better output.
