From MIG welders, TIG welders, plasma cutters, welding helmets, and machines that allow you to perform MIG TIG and stick welding. Before diving into purchasing a machine, there are several things to think about. Figuring out which welder is suited to your needs requires you to think about the power and amperage you require, as well as the material thickness and weld type. If you’re curious to find out whether CIGWELD welders are reliable, we’re here to tell you that yes, they are! Read on to figure out which CIGWELD products you are missing out on.
A Guide to Help You Find the Right Product
Looking through a huge selection of welders and welding accessories can get overwhelming. We’ve selected a few questions you should ask yourself before buying your next welder. It’ll help narrow down your selection and hopefully help you find that perfect CIGWELD welder you’ll love.
What kind of welder do you need?
As a first-time buyer, you may not know what kind of welding work you’ll be doing. This is where research comes into play. Aspiring welders should look at the types of projects they wish to start and go from there. You can find many different devices that come with unique attributes. When choosing a welder, you need to keep in mind the kind of material you’re going to be welding as well as how thick that material is. CIGWELD offers a wide range of machines to choose from, which means that you will have an option for every project.
Which outlets are available to use?
The capacity of the outlet you can use is going to determine the range of devices you can select from. Every piece of equipment must be connected to a power source. If you’re the type of welder who loves DIY projects, then it is likely that 10 AMP household sockets are accessible to you. A 10 AMP plug may support up to 180 AMPS; anything over this amperage then you will need to install a plug with 20 amperes. This will need to be done by an electrician to meet Australian Safety Standards.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for an industrial-grade welder for your business or company, then you may have access to a power source with higher AMP, giving you the freedom to select from a wide range of products. CIGWELD has many different options to select from, giving you the liberty of selecting the perfect machine for you.
What materials will you be working with?
There are many types of welding equipment that can handle different types of metals and materials. Each machine has its own specifications for voltage and amperage. MIG welders are great for mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, and bronze. TIG welders do well on the same materials as MIG welders, but they also have the bonus of also performing well on zinc alloys. Stick welders are much more preferred to be used on mild steel, stainless steel, and cast iron.
Keeping all these factors in mind when choosing a welder is imperative in deciding which product is right for you. With the help of our guidance, we know you’ll head back to your workstation with a state-of-the-art CIGWELD welder you love. Here are a select few favourites of ours that we think you would reap heaps of benefits from:
