Understanding and Extending Contact Tip Life

While only a small part of a larger mig welding system, contact tips play a critical part in achieving high quality welding performance.
The primary function of this consumable is to transfer the welding current to the welding wire as it passes through the center bore, effectively creating the arc.
To achieve the most consistent results, the wire needs to feed through the contact tip with the least amount of resistance possible, while still maintaining electrical contact.
Because of the constant friction from the wire and the exposure to the heat of the arc (and, in some cases, the reflective heat from the base material), contact tips take a tremendous amount of abuse during the course of welding.
This abuse can easily turn into contact tip failure without the proper precautions.
Not surprisingly, contact tip failure not only hinders productivity by creating downtime for change over, but it can also negatively affect weld quality and create rework.
Adding to that, the cost of replacing contact tips on a frequent basis can add up over time.
Understanding the typical types of contact tip failures and their causes is the best approach to preventing them.
