How to Weld Aluminum: The Beginner’s Guide
However, it does utilize a mechanical wire feeding system, which means the welder may have to use a spool gun or push-pull gun to make wire feeding possible. Additionally, in order to coat the risk of aluminum becoming porous, the base material and filler rod must be clean, free of moisture and have excellent shielding gas coverage, typically pure argon content.
In contrast, MIG welding and Stick welding (and sometimes TIG welding) can use very high amperage settings in order to achieve optimal penetration into the workpiece. Say for instance the welder is asked to weld a one-inch thick steel plate to a steel girder on a freeway overpass – this is a highly critical, structural weld and optimal penetration of the weld into the base metals must be
