UNIMIG is a well-known company within the welding industry. Their superior plasma cutters, variety of MIG and TIG stick welders, and welding machines make them one of the best options on the market. But what exactly sets them apart from other companies?
Well, for one, they are Australian owned and have been operating for over 35 years. They have an average review of 4.8 stars which is outstandingly difficult to obtain, and they offer an extra 6-month warranty when you register your machine. UNIMIG welders are some of the best on the market.
They have a range of machines to suit everyone, from home hobbyists right through to industrial users. The welders are made with high-quality materials and precision engineering, ensuring that you get a welder that is durable and long-lasting. We at Electroweld only supply the highest quality of welding equipment and gear. In this blog post, we will be looking at ideal qualities that consist of the perfect welding machine, as well as 6 UNIMIG products we highly recommend for your next welding project.
How to Choose a Perfect Welding Machine
Establish the ideal amperage
A 180–250-amp machine handles almost anything the average person will encounter. Most stick welding procedures require 180 amps or less which can also give phenomenal results with multiple passes. Determining what amperage you require will be a helpful tip in figuring out which welder is right for you.
Assess your environment
The site you will be working in should be a factor to consider when choosing a welding machine. The smaller the area, the smaller the machine. If you have a bigger workstation, then you have the freedom to decide on a larger machine. A 240-volt supply is a typical supply provided by a commercial or residential facility. Most beginner welding machines utilise this voltage.
Analyse compressed-gas requirements
Welding processes utilise a variety of compressed gasses. Argon-Mix, and carbon dioxide combined with Argon Mix are the most frequently used compressed gasses in many steel welding operations. If you are welding Aluminium, Pure Argon is the way to go. If you have specific needs in regard to gas requirements, such as specific gas bottles or a gasless wire, then this should also be another factor to consider.
