Welding Variables and Their Impact on the Process
Properly maintaining welding variables is critical to establishing high weld quality in any operation. Many companies put welding procedures in place that define the recommended parameters to help create consistency among welders and parts. Understanding what each welding variable in a procedure is, and what it does, can go a long way in meeting productivity goals and reducing downtime and costs for rework.
For constant voltage or CV welding with solid wire or tubular wires, there are key welding variables and their functions to consider, as well as how they impact the process.
