SAFETY
WARNING
Arc welding and cutting can be injurious to yourself and others. Take precausions when welding and
cutting. Ask for your employer's safety practices which should be based on manufacturers' hazard
data.
ELECTRIC SHOCK - Can kill
S
Install and earth the unit in accordance with applicable standards.
S
Do not touch live electrical parts or electrodes with bare skin, wet gloves or wet clothing.
S
Insulate yourself from earth and the workpiece.
S
Ensure your working stance is safe.
FUMES AND GASES - Can be dangerous to health
S
Keep your head out of the fumes.
S
Use ventilation, extraction at the arc, or both, to take fumes and gases away from your breathing zone
and the general area.
ARC RAYS - Can injure eyes and burn skin.
S
Protect your eyes and body. Use the correct welding screen and filter lens and wear protective
clothing.
S
Protect bystanders with suitable screens or curtains.
FIRE HAZARD
S
Sparks (spatter) can cause fire. Make sure therefore that there are no inflammable materials nearby.
NOISE - Excessive noise can damage hearing
S
Protect your ears. Use earmuffs or other hearing protection.
S
Warn bystanders of the risk.
MALFUNCTION - Call for expert assistance in the event of malfunction.
Read and understand the instruction manual before installing or operating.
PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS!

Choice of electrode and gas shroud
Electrodes for TIG welding
Three main types of electrodes are used for TIG welding:
S
pure tungsten electrodes
S
electrodes of tungsten alloyed with thorium
S electrodes of tungsten alloyed with zirconium
Alloying tungsten with 1% to 2% thorium or zirconium increases the electron yield,
which ensures better arc ignition and re-ignition, and hence improved arc stability.
Alloyed tungsten electrodes have a longer life, withstand higher currents and are
less likely to produce tungsten inclusions in the weld.
S
Pure tungsten electrodes
used for welding aluminium alloys. The tip of the electrode should be rounded for
welding. Melting point is around 3400_C.
S
Thoriated tungsten electrodes
normally used for DC welding of stainless, steel, copper, titanium, etc. The tip of
the electrode should be ground to a point. Melting point is around 4000_C.
S
Electrodes of tungsten alloyed with zirconium
used for AC welding of light metals such as aluminium and magnesium. The tip
of the electrode should be rounded for welding. Melting point is around 3800_C.

OPERATION
General safety regulations for handling of the equipment can be found on
page 3. Read through before you start using the equipment!
S
Grind the tungsten electrode as shown in the table below. NOTE! the electrode
should be ground along its length. If it is ground incorrectly the arc may be
unstable.
The angle should be increased as the current is increased.
