FCAW Farm Tips

-

● MIG uses DC electrode position (DCEP), but FCAW uses DC electrode negative (DCEN). Make sure you have the right settings.

● Flux cored wire is softer than MIG wire and is more likely to get tangled or birdnested. To avoid birdnestin­g, use knurled V-drive rollers.

● If the tip of the electrode touches the weld pool, it can fuse the hollow wire shut and break a good weld. Keep the tip away from the metal.
