WELD PROCESS = TIG, GTAW, GAS TUNGSTEN ARC WELDING
METAL TYPE = ALUMINUM 6061
THICKNESS = .063"
WELD TYPE = GROOVE WELD
JOINT TYPE = BUTT
POSITION = 3G VERTICAL
AMPERAGE = 75-85 AMPS CONTROLLED WITH FOOT PEDAL
TUNGSTEN = 2% LANTHANATED, 3/32"
FILLER WIRE = 3/32” 4043
POLARITY = AC
GAS FLOW = 20 CFH argon
CUP SIZE = 8
ADDITIONAL SETTINGS = AC BALANCE 31% CLEANING, AC FREQ 120HZ
PRE FLOW = 1 SEC
POST FLOW = 10 SEC
NOTES & TIPS: KEEP A FAIRLY TIGHT ARC AND WATCH TORCH ANGLE.WATCH PUDDLE SINK TO ENSURE PENETRATION
TEST WELDS DONE IN A FIXTURE REQUIRE MORE AMPERAGE THAN WITHOUT THE CHILL BLOCK
Aim for an arc length that is equal or less than the diameter of your tungsten electrode.Torch angle can be forgiving provided your arc length is tight.
