Don't Hesitate, Calibrate!


5 Reasons to Calibrate your Welding Machine Today!


1. If your machines meters are not properly showing the output of the machine you could start to experience issues that could diminish the strength of your weld and the quality of your work. For example if your voltage is too high, it can cause poor arc control and an unstable weld pool that leads to irregular penetration of the base metal. However, if the voltage is too low it can result in poor arc starts, excessive spatter and a bulged bead.

2.The Canadian Welding Bureau recommends annual welding calibrations as part of an ongoing equipment maintenance program.

3. Certification proves that your machine has been calibrated properly and can be traced back to the National Research Council of Canada or the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

4. Having a stable and accurate welding process will save you time and money, as well as give you peace of mind that you’re producing a quality product.

5. Along with following proper maintenance guidelines, having your machine professionally calibrated is one of the best ways to ensure that your welding machine runs at its best capabilities.
