Do you have a hobby of tossing gadgets around your home?
Inspired by my father’s carpentry work, I have accumulated several gadgets in my home.
Recently, I have developed a passion for household electric welding machines and I am eager to create metal ornaments.
I did some research on the internet and found that there are many brands available both domestically and internationally.
Choosing the right machine requires attention to several technical parameters, so I made sure to thoroughly educate myself before making a purchase.
I am sharing my findings in writing, hoping it will be of help for anyone looking to buy a household electric welding machine.
The following are some factors to be considered when selecting an electric welding machine:
- Motor material: The motor is the core element of this electrically driven device. It is recommended to purchase a pure copper motor as it has good conductivity, thermal properties, plasticity, corrosion resistance, and mechanical properties.
- Capacitance: A larger capacitance generally means a more durable welder. Additionally, it can improve the overall high temperature resistance and make welding large parts less vulnerable. However, beware of false markings on capacitors by some merchants.
- Welding wire core material: Copper has a resistivity of 0.0168, while aluminum has a resistivity of 0.0283. This means that aluminum wire has 68% higher resistance than copper wire of the same section. Be cautious of purchasing copper-clad aluminum or aluminum welding wire as it is prone to burning and leakage. When purchasing, check the product’s nameplate for the manufacturer’s title, production address, specification, and model.
- Security: Safety is a top priority when operating an electric welding machine. Check if the product has a grounding screw and ensure its connection is free of paint and well-grounded. Upon receiving the product, it is recommended to power it on and check the switch, indicator light, fan operation, and power supply for any abnormal sounds or burning smells.
- Functionality: When purchasing a household electric welding machine, consider the materials you will be welding, such as stainless steel, galvanized pipe, and square pipe, to ensure the overall performance is stable and excellent. It is important to confirm that the product has a “3C” quality certification, and it is recommended to buy from a reputable and high-quality manufacturer.
