Ideally, today’s digital welding equipment can be fine-tuned to the point of producing almost zero spatter and weld engineers and technicians can lay a beautiful weld at the start of production with brand new equipment.
However, in a real world production setting, weld variables rarely stay tuned to a laboratory type setting. Weld fixtures become misaligned. Component tolerances vary over time. Weld equipment becomes worn. Weld variables change with every new trouble shooting attempt. Ultimately, these all contribute to the buildup of weld spatter.
There are multiple solutions to preventing mig weld spatter from building up and causing quality or productivity issues in your high volume welding environment.
