In an effort to educate the masses on the restrictions of short circuit GMAW transfer we decided to do a fillet weld break test in the shop on some 3/8" plate. Over the course of my career, I have been in many shops where short circuiting MIG has been used on materials thicker than 5/16".
Today we are going through the functions and capabilities of the new Everlast Lightning MTS 275 Multiprocess welder. Our objective was to test the low lab amp capabilities of the machine and go through the different pulse options and AC frequency capabilities. Prior to the video, we went through the different processes the machine is capable of running and and got familiar with the settings.
https://www.weilerabrasives.com/ In a previous video we discussed Flux Cored Arc Welding in the 2G position. We are now rotating the plate 90° and going vertical. The joint configuration is similar to the horizontal plate except we now have both plates beveled at a 22.5° angle for a total of 45° included angle.
There seems to be a huge disconnect amongst the younger generation of welders when it comes to (CJP) prequalified weld tests, structural applications, and Flux Core Welding. I never realized how many "welders" didn't understand the aforementioned topics until we released this video.
So we received a request via our Instagram page the other day, asking about how to pick up some side work as a welder. Honestly, once people find out that you are a decent welder/fabricator and you have a decent amount of the basic tools, you will most likely be turning work down because you are so busy with side projects.
We're busting out another viewer submitted request from our audience members. A few viewers have requested us to do some thin gauge stainless steel to a thicker piece of material. This process is a much easier than most people think.
