Power Sources

A welding power supply provides an electric current for welding. A constant current (CC) machine varies output voltage to maintain a steady current, while a constant voltage (CV) machine fluctuates output current to maintain a set voltage. Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) and gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) use a CC source, and gas metal arc welding (GMAW) and flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) typically use CV sources, though constant current is also possible with a voltage sensing wire feeder.

Three Ways to Cut Field Welding Costs

Wireless Interface Control from Miller Electric Mfg.

Walking back and forth to a vehicle to tweak an engine-driven welder/generator’s control panel takes time. Remote control devices increase productivity by putting the ability to make changes in the palm of the operator’s hand.

Switching Polarity in Welding Applications

When competing for time-critical jobs, saving even a few minutes with each changeover can make a significant difference and reduce operator exposure to trip and fall hazards. Investing in technology that allows welders to easily change processes with the push of a button at the weld joint can save substantial time, increase weld quality and improve operator safety.
