mpm Meter Per Minute

IPM Inch Per Minute

Thumb Rule For MIG Welding Current

Setting the Right Amperage everytime

Current = (40 x t) + 30 A

Thumb Rule For MIG Welding Voltage

Voltage = (.04 x I) + 16 ± 2 V

Thumb Rule For MIG Welding Gas Flow

Gas Flow Rate = d x 10 lpm

Thumb Rule For Welding Deposition Rate

Welding Deposition Rate = [(Wire Feeder speed(IPS) x Wire Weight x 60)/ 1000 ] KG/Hr

Prefered MIG Welding StickOut Range

0mm to 12mm

Welding Wire Dia Widely Adopted In World

0.8 mm

1.0 mm

1.2 mm

1.6 mm

Welding Techniques

Push right to left,10° – 20°, fast and low penetration
