Hobart Filler Metals Selection & Calculator

By: Miller Electric Mfg Co.

Cost: FREE

Compatibility: Requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.


The Hobart Filler Metal Selector and Calculator is a quick reference tool with a number of different functions.

Functions include:

Filler Metal Selector helps you determine the best filler metal for joining carbon steels, aluminum, and stainless steels and will recommend the appropriate filler metal for SMAW, GMAW, FCAW, and GTAW.

Additionally, it has a Product cross reference for Hardfacing applications.

The Filler Metal Volume Calculator determines the amount of filler metal needed to complete a specific weld joint, weld size, and weld length using either Standard (SAE) or Metric units. Just select the weld joint and enter the needed dimensions of the weld size you will deposit. Next, enter the total length, process type, and arc transfer mode to determine the approximate amount of filler metal you would need to purchase for that weld. The volume calculator works for Aluminum, Stainless Steel, and Carbon Steel FCAW and GMAW applications.

The Heat Input Calculator allows users to input voltage, amperage and travel speed variables to determine heat input for each given application
