Arc Welding Advantages
Arc/Stick welding has certain distinct advantages:
- Stick welding is effective even when it’s windy or raining
- The equipment required is not very expensive
- It needs no external shielding gas, which saves money
- It’s less sensitive to paint, corrosion, and dirt at the welding point, saving time on pre-welding clean-up
- It’s easy to change rods for different metals
- The ground clamp can be attached far from the welding point
Why choose the Helvilite range? Established in 1975 the company is committed to providing quality welding and cutting machines. You can find the same reliability in each welding machine, plasma cutting machine and professional battery charger that Helvi manufactures.
Every single component is selected and tested to be perfectly combined in a product designed to meet high quality standards. Backed by a 2 Year Warranty, Helvi is a name you can trust.
Welding Safety First: Welding safety and personal protective equipment (PPE). Safety is critical in the welding operation and should be the first consideration before welding. Follow the manufacturer’s manuals for safe setup and operation. Proper ventilation is extremely important — keep your head out of the weld plume.
PPE is an essential part of welding. Wear safety glasses under your welding helmet and when conducting non-welding-related tasks in the weld cell. Other PPE to be used at all times include steel-toe boots, and flame-resistant long-sleeve jackets, pants and gloves.
