    who owns a Syncro 200? hey tech guys...

    I think i did this once before. Im still having trouble with my machine. Since im still very wet behind my ears when it comes to tiggin' Im not sure if what im seeing is whats supposed to be happening or not.

    If im doing 0.125" AL 6061 or 5086, I'll generally set my amps to around 95-110. This seems to work "okay". My beads come out looking fairly decent and the cleaning action leaves an etch zone that is about 1/4 the width of the bead. balance is around 1.0-1.5

    My problem lays in the fact that I think this machine isnt working right... It doesnt seem to matter where I set the balance, the cleaning action does not seem to change.

    also the arc strike counter resets at 100 cycles. so my machine has like 20 hours of weld time but only 10 cycles... those are some REALLY long weld beads...

    If i go half pedal (max 90A) say 45 amps, on 1/16th Al, the machine doesnt seem to produce a good bead or any cleaning action whatsoever and the arc is very unstable.

    So am I doing something wrong or is ther a good posibility that its pooched?

    Anyone out there with some insight, your opinions are greatly appreciated.

    Regards, Rich

    something smells

    Hi Cruizer,
    Thanks for your thoughts. Im all over that stuff like stink on a monkey. I agreee with your suggestions regarding the use of an oscilloscope. The one tool I should have but keep forgeting to get because its so esoteric.. maybe one day I'll luck out and get one thats good for megahertz and start creating anti gravity machines....
    Cheers!

    If the arc really dances around, it may be as simple as too much gas flow. Just did a service call on a unit where the operator jacked the flow meter to the limits and was wondering why his work piece was overly black and his weld was severely erratic. Moral of the story is too much gas is equally as bad as too little. As well as, if the gas is too high your not going to see any changes to your arc in the balance mode. Just a thought....


    Without being able to put a scope on your machine, it is unlikely for me to give you any other answers as to why your machine isn't doing what its supposed to.

    Might want to check your line power if you are in an industrial shop, most guys supposedly running 230 are'nt. If you check it and say it's 200, or 208, might want to reset the machines power to that voltage if it's capable of connecting to that power. If your running in your garage, its already at 230.

    Take in consideration the value of a dollar, the real-estate market the exchange rate. You might be right.
