    Default tungsten

    Hi all, I have recently purchased a syncrwave 200 and was wondering which tungsten (color) would best suit this machine for welding aluminum?

    I use 2% red for everything. I have some pure green stripe that I use for small guage aluminum, but if I'm welding over 120 amps, I use the red. I have a sync 200 also and I mostly weld heavy stainless with large valves.jpgthe machine at 160-200 amps

    Red, green and orange all have there place for that machine as far as bead profile is concerned. Balling effects etc. with amperage and material thickness, esp with aluminum.

    Pure (green) tungsten is not recommended with a square wave machine on AC. use ceriated (orange)
