ARC WELDING
A consumable electrode is connected to a high ampage low voltage supply
which creates an electric arc between the electrode and the workpiece.
NOTE: When using the welder outside, you may need to take measures
to erect a wind break to make sure the shielding gas is not blown
away, thereby leaving a poor quality weld.
PREPARATION
• Arc welding cables are supplied with this machine.
To prepare the unit for ARC welding, it is important that you follow the
procedure below.
1. Making sure that the ON/OFF switch, located on the rear panel is in the OFF
position, connect the welding leads as follows:
• Welding rod holder lead to the +ve terminal.
• Work clamp lead to the -ve terminal.
2. Select the appropriate welding rod and insert it into the welding rod holder.
• The size (diameter) of the welding rod should be approximately the
same as the thickness of metal to be welded.
3. Attach the work clamp to the workpiece as close as possible to the area
being welded. Clean with a wire brush where necessary to ensure the
connection is as clean as possible.
4. Set the required current using the
current selector.
• With practice you will gain a feel
for the correct current setting for
different welding rod thicknesses.
• The following table gives a useful
guideline.

5. Switch ON using the switch located on the rear panel.
• The green light on the front panel should glow, indicating the machine is
ON.
• If the machine stops at any time and the amber light comes ON, the
thermal overload device has intervened. Wait until the welder has
cooled sufficiently (the amber light goes out) before restarting work.
STRIKING THE ARC - WELDING
WARNING: WHEN WELDING ALWAYS ENSURE THERE IS ADEQUATE
VENTILATION IN THE WORK AREA AS THE WELDING PROCESS GIVES OFF
TOXIC FUMES.
WARNING: ALWAYS USE A SUITABLE WELDING MASK OR SHIELD WHEN
USING ANY WELDER.
The most difficult aspect of the arc welding process, particularly for beginners,
is that of striking an arc. We strongly recommend that you practice on some
pieces of scrap metal to get the feel of the operation, before you start on an
actual welding job.
1. Hold the electrode about 10 mm from the work and at an angle of about
70° to 80° to the work surface; take care not to accidentally touch the
workpiece until you are ready to start.
2. Holding the welding mask close-up to your face, give a short stroke with
the electrode on the workpiece. As soon as the arc is primed, withdraw the
electrode from the workpiece to leave a tiny gap of around 1.5mm (1/16").
The current will flow across the gap with a crackling noise and a brilliant
arc. Continue to weld in one direction, maintaining the small gap as you
go.
NOTE: When you prime the arc, be sure to withdraw the electrode swiftly
to leave the 1.5 mm. gap, otherwise the electrode will weld itself
to the workpiece. If this occurs give the electrode a short sharp
jerk to free it and, if necessary, prime the arc again. If you cannot
free the electrode, switch the machine off immediately and free
it. Take care the electrode will get red hot very quickly and will be
capable of burning through welding gloves.
3. At the end of the run, just lift the electrode away from the workpiece.
• Inspect the job carefully. Any slag forming on the surface should be
chipped away with a chipping hammer or pick. ALWAYS wear your
safety goggles when chipping away slag.

TIG WELDING
TIG welding is primarily for very thin materials. It uses a non-consumable
tungsten (or tungsten alloy) electrode, held in a torch.
A shielding gas (100% Argon), is fed through the torch to protect:
• The electrode,
• Molten weld pool,
• Solidifying weld metal from contamination by the atmosphere.
The electric arc is produced by the passage of current through the
conductive, ionized shielding gas. The arc is established between the tip of the
electrode and the work. Heat generated by the arc melts the base metal.
Once the arc and weld pool are established, the torch is moved along the
joint and the arc progressively melts the joined surfaces. Filler wire, if used, is
usually added to the leading edge of the weld pool to fill the joint.
This process is ideally suited for welding thin metals such as car body panels,
pressure vessels, heat exchangers, pipes etc., where accuracy and a high
quality weld is desired, as it produces a very low porosity weld.
MAIN FEATURES OF TIG WELDING
1. Electronic control of welding current.
2. Forced air cooling.
3. A thermal overload protection device prevents overheating.
TIG WELDING PROCESS ADVANTAGES
• It produces superior quality welds, generally free of defects.
• It is free of the spatter which occurs with other arc welding processes.
• It can be used with or without filler metal as required.
• It allows excellent control of root pass weld penetration.
• It can produce welds at high speeds.
• It allows precise control of the welding variables.
• Capable of welding very thin material (0.5mm), without undue
distortion.
LIMITATIONS
1. Greater weld dexterity is required.
2. These units have a DC output which is not suitable for welding aluminium.

TIG WELDING (REF FIG.2)
• The machine is not equipped with a TIG welding torch and cables;
these are available from your Clarke dealer. For the AT101 and AT132
(Part number 6012232) for the AT161 (part number 6012233).
• Additionally, before TIG welding, you must obtain a large gas
cylinder of 100% pure Argon.
To prepare the unit for TIG welding, it is important that you adopt the following
procedure.
1. Plug the work clamp lead in to the +ve terminal, and secure the work
clamp to the workpiece.
• For good contact, the work clamp must be attached to clean bare
metal. Clean with a wire brush where necessary.
2. Plug the torch lead to the -ve terminal.
3. Screw the pressure regulator on to
the gas bottle tightly, and attach
the gas hose to the inlet
connector securely, with a hose
clip.
Fig 2
4. Turn the pressure regulator knob to
set a pressure of approx. 2.5kg/
cm2. (35 lbf/in2).
5. Ensure the electrode at the torch
nozzle, protrudes by 4 - 5mm, also
ensure that the electrode is
sharply pointed with an angle of
40°-60°, if it is not, grind it to shape.
(Consult your TIG Torch manual for
the procedure for adjusting the electrode).
6. Set the welding current in accordance with the thickness of the material to
be welded and the size of tungsten electrode to be used, (See page 12),
7. Switch ON using the switch mounted on the rear panel. The green light on
the front panel will glow.
• If the machine stops at any time and the amber light comes ON, the
thermal overload has intervened. Wait until the welder has cooled
sufficiently (the amber light goes out) before restarting work.
10
Parts & Service: 020 8988 7400 / E-mail: Parts@clarkeinternational.com or Service@clarkeinternational.com
8. Open the gas valve on the torch handle,
• This will allow gas to flow from the torch nozzle.
9. Cover your face with the head shield, bring the torch to within 3-4mm of
the work, and at an angle of 45°, so that the ceramic nozzle gently touches
the work surface. See fig. 3.
Fig 3
10. Scratch the tip of the electrode on soon as an arc develops, quickly
withdraw the electrode to maintain a gap of approx. 3-4 mm, and
proceed to weld. (See notes below).
• This method is referred to as ‘Scratch Arc’.
11. To stop welding, simply remove the torch from the workpiece.
12. Turn OFF the gas as soon as you finish welding.
NOTE:
• To avoid a visible strike mark on the surface of the workpiece, it is
advisable to strike the arc in the joint, where the mark will be
concealed by the weld.
• Thin sheet and stainless steel may be welded with or without filler,
similar to gas welding.
• The filler is fed in at the edge of the pool. The rod must not touch the
tip of the electrode or enter the arc. The end of the rod must always
be shielded by the argon atmosphere to prevent as far as possible
the formation of oxides of its surface. When welding stainless steel
and copper, it is often possible to feed in the filler continuously at
the edge of the pool.
• The arc length generally varies between 3 and 6 mm depending on
the type of joint, type and thickness of material, and so on.
• The torch is advanced in the direction of welding, without lateral
movement, maintaining the torch angle of 45o to the workpiece.

WELDING PITFALLS
The arc welding technique is an acquired skill and requires considerable
practice before perfect results are obtained. The diagrams below will help to
explain the pitfalls in your technique and how to overcome them.
ARC TOO SHORT
This causes irregular masses of weld to be deposited, with
slag contamination on an uneven surface.
ARC TOO LONG
This causes poor penetration resulting in a weak weld with
excessive spatter and porosity. Surface of the weld is rough
and the arc makes a hissing sound
ELECTRODE MOVED TOO SLOWLY
This causes a very wide and heavy deposit which overlaps
at the sides. It is wasteful both in terms of time and electrode
use.
ELECTRODE MOVED TOO QUICKLY
This causes poor penetration with a ‘stringy’ and incomplete
weld deposit. Slag is very hard to remove.
CURRENT TOO LOW
This causes poor penetration and causes the electrode to
stick to the workpiece too readily. Also results in a very
irregular and high weld deposit. Slag is very hard to remove.
CURRENT TOO HIGH
This causes excessive penetration with spatter and deep
pointed crater. It may also cause holes to be burned in the
workpiece.
Burns electrodes very quickly.
THE PERFECT WELD
With the correct combination of arc length, current
regulation, inclination and speed of the electrode, you will,
with practice, produce the perfect weld.
This should be regular with uniform ripples and no slag
contamination. The arc will make a steady crackling sound.

MAINTENANCE
The ARC/TIG Inverter, requires very little maintenance other than the following
guidelines. Under normal working conditions removing the covers and
cleaning with dry compressed air at reduced pressure once a year will be
quite sufficient. Cleaning at more frequent intervals is advisable however, if the
unit is operating in a dusty and dirty environment.
1. Keep the louvres clean to avoid a build up of dirt and oxides inside the
machine, which can reduce machine output.
2. Check all cables periodically for condition and security: They must be in
good condition and not cracked.
3. Always avoid getting particles of metal inside the machine since they
could cause short circuits.
IMPORTANT: Disconnect from mains before cleaning.
DO NOT attempt to carry out repairs yourself, unless you are fully competent,
all work must be carried out by a qualified technician.
