suggested setting for FCAW when welding carbon steel

by Jake

What voltage and wire speed should I run when welding the following in all positions: 3/16", 3/8" and 1"?


With all the different specs and grades of flux core wires, and also the different diameters available, its difficult to list parameters that will work. Shielding gas makes a big difference also, because there are self shielded flux core wires that weld without gas, but there are also many types that use shielding gas....and wire speeds for self shielded and gas shielded applications vary tremendously.

this pdf doc is very useful for establishing a starting point.
