help with fluxcore settings
How would I run the amps and wire for horizontal 1"plate with fluxcore?
If you are working on a coded job, there should be a welding procedure to follow that lists the parameters needed.
With so many different brands of wire and specifications, its hard to nail down settings that work across the board.
I advise to look up the manufacturers web site and find the data sheet for the particular spec of wire.
this is an often overlooked resource and i have found the data sheets to be very helpful
if you dont know the brand, but can get the spec
(E70T-1, E71T-1, E81T1, E71T-8 etc)
then go to a reputable site like lincoln electric and locate the data sheet for that wire.
here is a link to what i am talking about at lincoln.
lets assume you are using lincoln nr 233 or another brand of E71T-8 spec flux core wire.
the lincoln data sheet has charts with recommended settings for different diameters of wire.
the cart for 1/16" diameter wire lists ranges of voltage settings and corresponding wire speed settings.
it looks something like this.
voltage inches per minute of wire
if it were me, I would probably start at around 23 volts and 250 inches per minute and work from there.
here is the pdf document I often use from lincolns site
