Outfitting or upgrading your shop might not seem like a big deal when you’re making the shopping list-but its amazing how quickly it can become overwhelming when you start to filter through your option.

A quick Google search can easily yield hundreds of results for welding equipment dealers, all vying for your money and claiming that they are offering the best that the industry has to offer. What they’re not telling you, however, is that shopping by dealer like this is no longer the best way to find what you’re looking for.

Believe it or not, shopping for equipment is extremely difficult when you decide to do it on your own. Investigating listings can be endless work, and sifting through the relevant information can take up tremendous amounts of your time. Plus, after you have gone to the trouble of finding sellers and researching their inventory, you are then faced with the daunting task of making phone calls, visiting to see what they have in stock, etc. This is all time that could be put towards better things.

What Are You Shopping For Today?

Things You Need To KnowDiscover More

Arc Equipment

  • When buying arc equipment, make sure to think about whether you’re going to be using an electric welder or a gas welder.
  • Also keep in mind that there are two different types of electric welders—AC and DC models.
  • If you choose to buy a DC model, keep in mind that you may need a dedicated DC generator, as the power grid only supplies us with AC electricity.
  • Which type of arc equipment you buy will also depend on whether you are buying a wire or stick welder. They will require different components, and present different strengths and weaknesses.
  • When buying arc equipment, it’s important to keep the voltage in mind. Some welders are made for specific voltages, and won’t work with materials that aren’t rated the same.

Mig Welder

  • One of the biggest mistakes that people make when buying a new welder is to go for the cheapest option. A quality welder will help to contribute to a quality project.
  • Try to decide what you are going to weld before purchasing your new welder, so that you can buy a machine with the proper amps.
  • If you are, for example, wanting to weld 2.0mm steel, then a 90 amp welder would probably work. But if you’re looking to weld 5mm steel, you’re going to need at least 180 amps.
  • Before buying a MIG welder, make sure that your power supply will provide enough electricity.
  • You might want to avoid what they call a ‘live wire feed’. This feature isn’t usually included in welders anymore, but it never hurts to ask. Some call these ‘permanently live torches’.

TIG Welder

  • TIG stands for ‘Tungsten Inert Gas’. These welders sometimes fall under the acronym GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding).
  • TIG welding is very precise and clean. It’s ideal for cosmetic applications and is commonly used with thin-gauge stainless steel—as well as with other similar types of metals.
  • Amperage range is important to consider when buying a TIG welder. If your amperage range is too narrow, you may find yourself restricted in what you can do with it.
  • A machine with an amperage range of up to 230 provides a lot more flexibility—allowing you to weld materials ranging from 24 gauge steel to ¼ inch aluminum.
  • Some welders offer both AC and DC current options. If you plan on welding more than just steel, this might be an ideal feature to look for.

Submerged Arc Welder

  • This type of welding is common in heavy steel plate fabrication assembly work.
  • Keep in mind exactly what type of work you hope to accomplish with your SAW. Are you going to be working on railcars or large-sized ships? If so, then you’re going to need something big enough to get the job done.
  • For heavier duty applications, you’re going to want something capable of 1,000 A at 44 VDC—or at least something close to that.
  • Smaller arc welders rated for 650 A at 44 VDC can also be used in heavy-duty industrial settings, though they aren’t without their limitations.
  • Always look at the features. Does the welder utilize a built-in arc controller, or give you overload protection?

Oxy Fuel Torch

  • An oxy fuel torch system is going to require two tanks—one filled with oxygen, and one filled with acetylene.
  • The size of the fuel torch rig is based on the capacity of its cylinders—so make sure that you get a rig that’s large enough for your workload.
  • Rig sizes are generally determined by the cubic feet of the cylinders. A 20 cubic feet system, for example, is large enough to weld for one hour or to cut for about twenty minutes.
  • In addition to the rig itself, you’re going to need to buy tips for your torch. These are all sized specifically, so it’s important to consult a ‘size chart’ for the brand of tip that you’ll be purchasing.
  • If you plan on buying hoses, valves, or regulators separately, make sure that you match them up to the size of the cylinders that you’ll be using.

Plasma Cutter

  • If you plan to use your plasma cutter regularly and continuously, then it’s very important to look at the duty cycle under the specifications for the model in question.
  • Plasma cutters often require a great deal of power, so make sure that you take stock of your available electrical outlets before shopping—just to make sure that you’ll be able to power your cutter with what you have available.
  • Will you need your plasma cutter to be portable? If so, then you should take this into account during the shopping process.
  • If you do need a little bit of extra portability, then you might want to look for a cutter with a built-in inverter.
  • Will your cutter come with electrodes? If not, then it’ll be up to you to supply them—so make sure to get sizing information beforehand.

Laser Cutter

  • Laser cutters come in many different sizes—so it’s important to think about the size and scope of possible projects before you make a purchase.
  • Bed size is extremely important where laser cutters are concerned. This isn’t something that can really be upgraded—so make sure that you buy a cutter that’s big enough for your needs.
  • How thick will your materials be? This will make a big difference, as not all laser cutters are designed to handle thicker materials.
  • The ‘engraving area’ and/or ‘working area’ of your laser cutter will determine how large your projects can be.
  • Laser cutters can come in a variety of ‘laser powers’. 60W, 90W, 120W, and 150W are some of the options that you’ll have to choose from.
