Deposition Rate by Wire Type

A common question in the field is which wire type will provide the best deposition rate.  In one of our earlier posts “Calculating Deposition Rate for Solid Wires” we discussed deposition rates strictly for solid wires.   Here we will talk about deposition rates across wire types – mainly solid wire, metal-cored wire and flux-cored wire.   […]

So many shops operate under the premise that the bigger the weld the better it is, or that putting down a bigger weld than what is called for is playing it safe.  Although there may be some truth to this it isn’t always the case.  And, in some instances, a bigger weld can actually be […]
