If flux-cored electrodes are used there are also special slag-forming elements in the flux. There will be a combination of these effects that gives the quality of the final weld. Another important effect of the shielding gas is to improve the process. Some of these factors are: · · · · · · · Ignition of the arc. Arc stability. Material deposition. Wetting between solid material and the weld pool. Penetration depth and shape. Spatter formation. Emission of airborne pollutions. The properties of the pure gases and the different gas mixtures are governed by the physical and chemical characteristics at low as well as at high temperatures.

Multiplying the current and voltage gives the apparent power, which is measured in kVA and which is of importance when determining the capacity of the electrical supply system. The power factor is defined as the ratio of true power to the apparent power. 85. g. for a MIG power source with tapchanger control or for certain inverter units, although it is usually considerably lower for MMA power sources. 5 Electrical safety requirements It is important from the point of view of electrical safety that the open-circuit voltage of the power unit is not too high.

If, for example, something happens so that the length of the arc is reduced, the voltage drops and the current increases. It can be seen from Fig. 1 Example of a constant voltage (straight) characteristic. characteristic is slight, but only to working point 3 if the characteristic has a steep slope. The increase in current raises the rate of melting of the electrode, and the arc length is restored. This is known as the self-regulation characteristic of the arc length. MIG power units have a straight characteristic in order to provide good self-regulation performance.
