You need to configure the machine to specifications of the material you going to weld.That is :
-The material of the job
-And the proper amperage to use for the material.
-For aluminum you will use A/C
-Stainless Steele / Chrome Molly D/C
Aluminum MIG Welding
The best feeding
of wire for aluminum is done with a spool gun. If you can't use a spool
gun, use the shortest gun possible and keep the gun as straight as
possible. Use Argon only for shielding gas. Only use a push gun
technique when welding aluminum.
If you are having feeding problems, one thing you can try is a contact tip that is one size bigger than your wire.
The most common
wire type is ER4043 for all-purpose work. ER5356 is a stiffer wire
(easier to feed), and is used when more rigid, higher-strength weld
properties are needed.
Clean the aluminum before welding, to remove the oxide layer. Use a stainless steel wire brush used only for cleaning aluminum.
Fill the crater
at the end of the weld to avoid a crack. One way to do this is to dwell
in the weld pool for a second at the end of the weld.
