Considerations for Switching to Pulsed MIG and Pulsed TIG Welding in Thin Gauge Aluminum Applications
Pulsed welding equipment has been around for a long time. However, technical advancements have made pulsed welding equipment much easier to use and, consequently, better for training operators to make quality welds. Some of the new Pulsed MIG and Pulsed TIG welding technologies provide excellent welding performance on thin gauge aluminum.
Upgrading to modern Pulsed MIG or Pulsed TIG inverter technology could potentially help you increase productivity, improve weld quality, reduce weld costs, and boost operator efficiency. That being said, you will need to study your particular application in detail to determine which, if any, of these processes is appropriate for you. Remember, pulse welding is not the answer to all aluminum welding-related problems.
