Are you a novice welding operator who is in constant dilemma to select the best welding machine for your task? Well, your confusions can be easily cleared if you get to know about the benefits of using a wire feed welder. Usually the beginners would tend to start their welding process with either stick welder or wire feed welder. However, the wire feed welders have some benefits over stick welders.
In wire feed welders, the wire is fed in a continuous process and this initiates higher productivity. But in stick welders, you need to change electrodes during welding. Secondly, the wire welding requires only lower skill levels and can be learnt quickly while in stick welding, the coordination of hand movements is essential. These reasons make the wire welding most appropriate for the first timers.
Once you select the wire welding process, next you have to go for the type of wire welding that you need. There are two types generally; the MIG welders and flux core welders. MIG welder is capable of welding a variety of metals including thinner ones. And flux core welder would be the best if you want to weld thick materials. In addition, portability and convenience would be more in flux core welders.
