Design of a Small Welding Wire Feeder


Article Preview

Wire feeder is a welding wire delivery device widely used in TIG and CO2 gas welding. Smooth wire feeding directly affects the quality of welding. A small welding wire feeder was improved. The wire feeder and the welding wire plate were centrally located in the torch. This has reduced the wire transmission resistance and increased the mobile flexibility. Practical application proved that it has the characteristics of wire feeding stable and reliable, high welding productivity and high quality and stability of weldments. It has a significant impact on improvement of the existing welding and broad application prospects in welding industrial production.
