D/F Welding Tips & Tricks - Prolonging Contact Tip Life

Prolonging contact tip life will reduce downtime and consumable costs. Follow these tips and you will be sure to improve your experience.

  • Using a water-cooled torch will keep the tip cooler and lasting longer.
  • Make sure the gun isn't worn out or that weld spatter is not on the tip.
  • Be sure the tip never enters the weld pool.
  • Make sure to maintain factory tip set-backs and terminal distances.
  • For hard cored & flux cored wires use a CrZr (Chromium Zirconium) tip .
  • Always use factory D/F tips. After-market non-factory consumables are not to spec and are made with lesser grade materials.
