Looking for some feedback. We've successfully been GMAW welding A36 and A500 to SAE 1030 cast steel using ER70-S3 both CV Spray and modified pulse spray. Asides from the basic WPS parameter controlls we try to stay away from specilize control such as pre/post heat to save cost and training requirements. Recently we've been asked to explore welding A36 and A500 to SAE 1045 caststeel-now we just left the low carbon safety zone- The question is can we pull this off with only using the lowhydrogen variation to the GMAW process?
Feedback please. Anything to help.

The Lincoln Electric web site has a section for free downloads. Among these downloads is a booklet that will tell you MOST of the metal designations and the correct rod/filler with which to weld them.
Also, your LWS should have a resource they can contact to find out the proper rod/filler.
