MIG Welding Consumables Platform keeps contact tips cooler.

December 2, 2014

Extending consumable parts life, Velocity™ platform features contact tips with shielding gas ports that keep tip 30% cooler. Gas porting in contact tip, coupled with all-copper conductive path with fewer connections, promotes electrical and thermal conductivity, while running temperature of contact tip reduces ability for spatter to stick. Thread-less, drop-in contact tips can be exchanged without tools, and design employs heat-treated, stainless threaded sleeve. Read More
