1.0 Safety Precautions

ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.

Touching live electrical parts can cause fatal shocks or severe burns. The electrode and work circuit is electrically live whenever the output is on. The input power circuit and machine internal circuits are also live when power is on. In semiautomatic or automatic wire welding, the wire, wire reel, drive roll housing, and all metal parts touching the welding wire are electrically live. Incorrectly installed or improperly grounded equipment is a hazard.

Do not touch live electrical parts.

Wear dry, sound insulating gloves and body protection.

Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats or covers big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work ground.

Frequently inspect input power cable for damage or bare wiring - replace cable immediately if damaged - bare wiring can kill.

Turn off all equipment when not in use.

Do not use worn, damaged, under sized, or poorly spliced cables.

Do not drape cables over your body.

If earth grounding of the work piece is required, ground it directly with a separate cable.

Do not touch electrode if you are in contact with the work, ground, or another electrode from a different machine.

Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged parts at once. Maintain unit according to manual.

Wear a safety harness if working above floor level.

Keep all panels and covers securely in place.

Clamp work cable with good metal-to-metal contact to work piece or worktable as near the weld as practical.

Insulate work clamp when not connected to work piece to prevent contact with any metal object.

Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing these fumes and gases can be hazardous to your health.

Additional safety precautions are required when any of the following electrically hazardous conditions are present: in damp locations or while wearing wet clothing; on metal structures such as floors, gratings, or scaffolds; when in cramped positions such as sitting, kneeling, or lying; or when there is a high risk of unavoidable or accidental contact with the work piece or ground. For these conditions, use the following equipment in order presented: 1) a semiautomatic DC constant voltage (wire) welder, 2) a DC manual (stick) welder, And, do not work alone!

Disconnect input power before installing or servicing this equipment. Lockout/tagout input power according to Safety Standards.

Properly install and ground this equipment according to national and local standards.

Always verify the supply ground - check and ensure that input power cable ground wire is properly connected to ground terminal in the receptacle outlet.

When making input connections, attach proper grounding conductor first - double-check connections.

FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous.

Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.

If inside, ventilate the area and/or use local forced ventilation at the arc to remove welding fumes and gases.

If ventilation is poor, wear an approved respirator.

Read and understand the Material Safety Data Sheets

(MSDS’s) and the manufacturer’s instructions for metals, consumable, coatings, cleaners, and degreasers.

Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while wearing an air-supplied respirator. Always have a trained watch person nearby. Welding fumes and gases can displace air and lower the oxygen level causing injury or death. Be sure the breathing air is safe.

Do not weld in locations near de-greasing, cleaning, or spraying operations. The heat and rays of the arc can react with vapours to form highly toxic and irritating gases.

Do not weld on coated metals, such as galvanized, lead, or cadmium plated steel, unless the coating is removed from the weld area, the area is well ventilated, and while wearing an air-supplied respirator. The coatings and any metals containing these elements can give off toxic fumes if welded.

ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin.

Arc rays from the welding process produce intense, visible and invisible (ultraviolet and infrared) rays that can burn eyes and skin. Sparks fly off from the weld.

www.parweld.com

Wear an approved welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of filter lenses to protect your face and eyes when welding or watching

Wear approved safety glasses with side shields under your helmet.

Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash, glare and sparks; warn others not to watch the arc.

Wear protective clothing made from durable, flame resistant material (leather, heavy cotton, or wool) and foot protection. Welding on closed containers, such as tanks, drums, or pipes, can cause them to blow up. Sparks can fly off from the welding arc. The flying sparks, hot work piece, and hot equipment can cause fires and burns. Accidental contact of electrode to metal objects can cause sparks, explosion, overheating, or fire. Check and be sure the area is safe before doing any welding.

BUILDUP OF GAS can injure or kill.

Shut off shielding gas supply when not in use. Always ventilate confined spaces or use approved air-supplied respirator.

HOT PARTS can cause severe burns.

Do not touch hot parts with bare handed.

Allow cooling period before working on gun or torch.

To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or wear heavy, insulated welding gloves and clothing to prevent burns.

MAGNETIC FIELDS can affect pacemakers.

Pacemaker wearers keep away.

Wearers should consult their doctor before going near arc welding, gouging, or spot welding operations.

WELDING can cause fire or explosion.

Remove all flammables within 10m of the welding arc. If this is not possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.

Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.

Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.

Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can easily go through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.

Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby. Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition can cause fire on the hidden side.

Do not weld on closed containers such as tanks, drums, or pipes, unless they are properly prepared according to local regulations

Connect work cable to the work as close to the welding area as practical to prevent welding current from travelling along, possibly unknown paths and causing electric shock, sparks, and fire hazards.

Cut off welding wire at contact tip when not in use.

Wear oil-free protective garments such as leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless trousers, high shoes, and a cap. Remove any combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches, from your person before doing any welding.

NOISE can damage hearing.

Noise from some processes or equipment can damage hearing.

Wear approved ear protection if noise level is high.

Shielding gas cylinders contain gas under high pressure.

CYLINDERS can explode if damaged.

Protect compressed gas cylinders from excessive heat, mechanical shocks, physical damage, slag, open flames, sparks, and arcs. Install cylinders in an upright position by securing to a stationary support or cylinder rack to

FLYING METAL can injure eyes.

Welding, chipping, wire brushing, and grinding cause sparks and flying metal. As welds cool they can throw off slag. Wear approved safety glasses with side shields even under your welding helmet.

6 prevent falling or tipping. Keep cylinders away from any welding or other electrical circuits. Never drape a welding torch over a gas cylinder. Never allow a welding electrode to touch any cylinder. Never weld on a pressurized cylinder - explosion will result. Use only correct shielding gas cylinders, regulators, hoses, and fittings designed for the specific application; maintain them and associated parts in good condition.

Turn face away from valve outlet when opening cylinder valve.

Use the right equipment, correct procedures, and sufficient number of persons to lift and move cylinders.

• The MIG power switch is to be in the OFF position when installing work cable and torch and when connecting other equipment.

5.1 Unpacking the Machine

Cut banding and lift off cardboard carton. Cut banding holding the machine to the skid. Remove corrugated packing material. Remove accessories from Gas Bottle

Platform.. Roll the machine off the skid

5.2 Location

Locate the welder in a dry location where there is free circulation of clean air into the louvres in the supply is adequate for the voltage, amperage, phase, and frequency specified on the Machine nameplate.

The 230 volt 50 Hz machine is supplied with a 4m input cable and without plug, ensure that you connect a plug that is suitably rated for the power draw of the machine and the environmental location. Have a qualified electrician connect the input plug. For long runs over 30m , larger copper wires should be used.

The green/yellow wire in the input cable connects to the frame of the machine. This ensures proper grounding of the machine when the machine plug is inserted into the receptacle.

5.4 Assembly of Separate wire feeder

Note:- if the wire feeder is going to be used remotely to the power source there is not need to assemble the mounting post.

If the wire feeder is to be used local to the power source.

Place the flat chrome disc over the hole in the top of the power source lid . Insert the threaded chrome post thread end first through the flat disc and screw

it securely into the top of the machine. Lift the wire feeder up onto the power source and locate the post into the tube on the underside of the wire feeder taking care to ensure it is fully located on the post.

Connection of the interconnect cable.

Working at the wire feeder end insert the Dinse power connector and twist it to lock it securely. Connect the gas hose to the inlet on the rear of the wire feeder followed by the 4 pin plug taking care to align the pins before inserting the plug.

At the power source end connect the Dinse socket and twist to secure, connect the 5 pin control socket taking care to align the pins before inserting the plug. The gas hose should be lead off to the outlet connection of the gas regulator.

5.5 Output Polarity Connections

The welder, as shipped from the factory, is connected for electrode positive (+) polarity. This is the normal polarity for MIG welding.

Fig 1 Fig 2 it is refitted.

NOTE: Be sure that the torch liner and contact tip are also sized to match the selected wire size.

5.7 Welding wire installation

1. Open the Wire drum cover by pulling down and out on the bottom of the cover

2. Unscrew the plastic retaining wheel from the end of the spool holder shaft.

3. Position the wire spool so that it will rotate in a direction when feeding so as to be de-reeled from the bottom of the coil.

4. Slide the wire spool all the way onto the shaft and refit the plastic retaining nut.

Note:- There is a friction brake on the reel hub assembly to prevent the wire spool over running when welding stops ensure the this is slackened to the minimum setting. It can be adjusted by means of the nut visible when the plastic nut is removed.

5. Turn the Spool until the free end of the electrode is accessible. While securely holding the electrode, cut off the bent end and straighten the first six inches. (If the electrode is not properly straightened, it may not feed properly through the wire drive system Manually feed the wire from the wire reel and through the wire guide and then over the top of the wire feed rollers (ensure the pressure arms are in the raised position.)

6. Continue to feed the wire through the outlet guide until 20mm of wire is protruding from the front of the machine torch connector.

7. Reposition the adjustable pressure arms to there original position to apply pressure. Adjust pressure as necessary.

Note the pressure arm should be adjusted in order to give the minimum amount of pressure on the wire to allow reliable feeding,

5.6 Changing drive roll sets

1. Turn off the power source.

2. Release the pressure on the idle rolls by swinging the adjustable pressure arm down. Lift the cast idle roll assembly and allow it to sit in an upright position.

3. Unscrew the plastic knob retaining the lower grooved drive roll and side off the drive roller.

4. Ensure the wire size marked on the side of the feed roller matches the wire size to be used.

5. Replace the drive rolls in reverse of the above procedure ensuring the wire size to be used is marked on the outward facing side of the roller as

Y our Parweld MIG/MAG Welding Torch has been supplied ready to weld. It has been supplied with the standard consumables denoted in the product brochure.

To connect the torch to the power source:-

1. Remove the tip adaptor and contact tip

2. Inch the wire from the exit of the wire guide on the feed unit as Figure 1. Ensure that it does not short out on any machine panels.

3. Carefully slide the electrode wire into the torch liner and slowly locate the torch gun plug body into the feed unit central connector and tighten the gun plug nut as Figure 2

Note; To aid the initial location of a new torch and to prevent damage to the gas nipple O-ring a very light application of grease to the O Ring is beneficial.

4. Keeping the torch as straight as possible, use the power source inch facility or torch trigger to feed the electrode wire 50mm from the end of the liner conduit.

5. Once the electrode wire has stopped, refit the tip adaptor, diffuser, contact tip and gas nozzle.

6. Trim the electrode wire to within 5mm of the face of the nozzle, this will facilitate jolt free arc initiation.

7. Press the gas purge button and check the gas flow is adequate for your application.

8. An inexpensive flow meter is available from

Parweld reference 806001.

9. If you are setting a water-cooled torch ensure you have the recommended water flow rate.

Note;- It is essential to ensure adequate flow of clean, cool water to prevent irreparable torch failure, a minimum of 1.2 l/min is recommended.

Parweld recommend the use of its XTS water recirculation system designed specifically for use with all water cooled MIG, TIG and Plasma welding torches.

The Parweld XTS recirculation equipment can be fitted with a fail-safe flow protection device to prevent overheating or meltdown.

Note. Water flows into the torch through the blue hose. The blue hose delivers cold water directly to the prime source of heat, the swan neck and consumables. The re circulated water is then passed through the torch power cable to cool the power cable as it is returned to the cooler through the red water return lead.

Ensure all air is removed from the water cooling circuit before welding.

5.9 Work return lead connection

Insert the work return lead connector into the receptacle on the front panel of the machine and twist it clockwise until tightly secured.

Connect the earth clamp to the work piece as close as possible to the point to be welded and ensure that a good electrical connection is created to bare metal.

5.10 Shielding gas connection

1. Connect gas hose to the output connection of a gas regulator capable of supplying the correct gas flow for the welding operation.

Note if the gas cylinder is to be stored on the back of the machine ensure it is secured using the retention chain provided

6.0 Operation

1. Switch on the machine using the switch no the front panel, this lights the Green LED on the front panel.

2. Turn the “VOLTAGE SELECTOR” switches Set voltage midway between high/low voltages.

NOTE: Check that drive rolls, and torch parts are correct for the wire size and type being used.

3. The optimum idle roll pressure varies with type of wire, wire diameter, surface conditions, www.parweld.com

lubrication, and hardness. As a general rule, hard wires may require greater pressure, and soft, or aluminium wire, may require less pressure than the factory setting. The optimum idle roll setting can be determined as follows:

4. Press end of gun against a solid object that is electrically isolated from the welder output and press the gun trigger for several seconds.

5. If the wire “bird nests”, jams or breaks at the drive roll, the idle roll pressure is too great. Back the adjustment knob out 1/2 turn, run new wire.

If the only result was drive roll slippage, loosen the Hand nut on the central connector and pull the gun forward about 6” (15cm) away from the power source. There should be a slight waviness in the exposed wire. If there is no waviness, the pressure is too low. Tighten the adjustment knob

1/4 turn, reinstall the gun cable and repeat the above steps.

6.1 Feeding wire electrode

Note when triggering, the electrode and drive mechanism are electrically “LIVE” relative to work and ground and remain “LIVE” several seconds after the gun trigger is released.

WARNING

When using an open arc process, it is necessary to use correct eye, head, and body protection.

1. Position wire over joint. The end of the wire may be lightly touching the work.

2. Lower welding helmet, operate gun trigger, and begin welding. Hold the gun so the contact tip to work distance is about 3/8” (10 mm).

3. To stop welding, release the gun trigger and then pull the gun away from the work after the arc goes out.

4. When no more welding is to be done, close valve on gas cylinder (if used), momentarily operate gun trigger to release gas pressure and turn off the machine.

6.2 Optimising weld parameters

NOTE These settings are guidelines only. Material and wire type, joint design, fit up, position, shielding gas, etc. affect settings. Produce test welds to be sure they comply to specifications.

Material thickness determines weld parameters.

1. Convert Material Thickness to Amperage (A)

(0.25mm= 1 Amp) 3.2mm = 125 A

2. Select Wire Size

Amperage Range Wire Size

40 - 145 A 0.8 mm

50 - 180 A 1.0 mm

75 - 250 A 1.2 mm

3. Select Wire Speed (Amperage)

Wire Size Feed speed

0.8 mm 0.05m/min per Amp

1.0 mm 0.04m/min per Amp

1.2 mm 0.025m/min per Amp

So based on 3.2 mm material thickness amperage should be 125A if using 1.0mm wire then the wire feed speed should be

0.04 X 125= 5m/min

Wire speed (amperage) controls weld penetration

4. Select Voltage. Voltage controls height and width of weld bead.

Low Voltage: wire stubs into work

High Voltage: arc is unstable (spatter)

Set voltage midway between high/low voltages.

And then fine tune accordingly

NOTE These settings are guidelines only. Material and wire type, joint design, fit up, position, shielding gas, etc. affect settings. Produce test welds to be sure they comply to specifications.

6.3 Additional welding controls

Burn back adjustment. when welding at high amperages the wire can often burn back onto or close to the contact tip to prevent this happening you can increase the burn back control (18) located inside the wire spool cover.

Soft Start. The soft start control slows the acceleration of the wire feed motor as the act starts and so reduces wire snubing and spatter at the weld start. This control should be adjusted to give a smoother start to the weld. (17).

7.0 Fault finding
