Continuous casting and liquid extrusion can be made up to several meters of cobalt chrome tungsten wire for automatic wire filling gas tungsten arc welding to improve the welding efficiency and quality surfacing, but also improve working conditions. Cast iron welding sometimes also used cast wire.

Fold medicine core class

Use a thin steel coil into a round or shaped steel tube, filled with a certain composition of the powder, made of drawn sewn cored wire, or filled with powder filled steel tube made of a seamless flux cored wire (see photo). With this welding wire welding deposition efficiency, good adaptability to steel, short trial period, so its use and use of the growing range. This wire is mainly used for carbon dioxide gas shielded welding, submerged arc welding and electroslag welding. Flux cored wire powder ingredients generally similar to the electrode coating. The flux-cored wire, which contains slagging, gas-forming and stable arc components, does not require shielding gas when welding, and is called self-shielded flux cored wire and is suitable for construction of large welded structural projects.

As early as the early 1950s gas protection flux cored wire began to develop the market, but only in 1957 began widespread commercial use. This method can be said to be taken from the submerged arc welding and CO2 welding (refers to the solid) combination of the advantages of flux wrapped in the wire and by the protection of the outer CO2 gas can produce a softer and stable welding arc and low spatter For its characteristics. Only the beginning of the development of large wire diameter wire (2.0-4.0mm), for the major parts of the flat welding and horizontal welding. Until 1972, the development of small diameter wire began to greatly expand the use of flux cored wire.

Self-shielded flux cored wire, which was developed shortly after the gas-guarded flux-cored welding wire was asked, soon became widely accepted by the industry for specific uses.

The biggest difference between the two has been described in the second unit, the unit will do the overall discussion.

Folding introduction

The control of the manufacturing process of the flux cored wire is very strict. Since the molten filler metal comes from the ingredients contained in the steel sheet and the flux, the size and chemical composition of the flux-cored wire must be carefully checked in advance to ensure the quality.

Due to the limited internal space of the welding consumables, the more the size of the flux particles becomes more important, the formation of a bird-like nest between the particles together and the uneven flux compositional elements.

Most of the flux-cored wire by a flat strip of thin metal strip by rolling into a U-shaped section, granular flux filled in the U-shaped metal groove and then by the final seal rolling step, the flux tight roll Pressure in the tube wire

The rolled wire into a tube through a series of pull action to become the last need of wire diameter, the pull action can also be filled flux evenly fixed in the welding wire skin.

It is the key to the quality of the flux cored wire that how to prevent some of the wires from forming hollow without flux due to poor control in the manufacturing / production process. In addition, the surface of the wire should be smooth, smooth and clean, otherwise it will affect the smooth wire feeding and the transmission of welding current. Wire into a roll or into a barrels to avoid wire entanglement or damage to each other, usually rolls into a plastic wrap and placed desiccant to prevent damp materials, the encapsulated material and then into the carton and sent.

When the base metal is thicker, the cross-section is mostly BUTT and the amount of flux is less. Most of the carbon steel and low-alloy steel have such wire cross-sections with a diameter of 2.8 mm or less, such as stainless steel Alloy and wire diameter is larger, the wire larger space for flux and alloying elements cross-sectional shape is multi-spliced or heart-shaped (LAP and HEART SHAPED) joints.

Folding features

As mentioned before, flux cored wires highlight the advantageous properties of many welding methods. For example, the flux fraction plays a role with coated electrodes to improve the chemical composition and mechanical properties of the molten metal. Production efficiency and gas metal arc welding and submerged arc welding characteristics.

Flux cored wire can be used for welding carbon steel, low alloy high tensile steel, high strength quenched and tempered steel, stainless steel and hardfaced wear-resistant steel.

Flux cored wire is a promising new welding materials, domestic varieties and the amount of flux cored wire is increasing. Compared with solid wire flux cored wire has the following advantages and disadvantages.


1) The welding of various steel, adaptability Emphasis on flux composition and the proportion of the extremely convenient and easy to provide the required chemical composition of the weld.

2) good process performance, beautiful appearance of the weld joint gas and slag protection, get a good shape. Adding arc stabilizers to stabilize the arc, droplet transfer uniform.

3) Depositing speed, high production efficiency In the same welding current flux cored wire current density, melting speed, the deposition rate of about 85% -90%, the productivity of about 3-5 times higher than the electrode arc welding.

4) The welding current can be used for all-position welding.


1) wire manufacturing process is complicated

2) welding, wire feeding more difficult than the solid wire

3) The appearance of the wire is easy to rust and the powder is easy to absorb moisture. Therefore, the requirements for the preservation of a flux cored wire are more strict

Flux function

As with the coated electrode, the manufacturer of flux cored wire has its own unique formulation for the flux composition. The composition of the flux varies depending on the applicable function of the welding consumables.

The basic functions of the flux composition are as follows:

oxygen scavenger and nitrogen removal agent

Since nitrogen and oxygen can cause stomatal or embrittlement of the weld metal, oxygen and oxygen in the flux must be added, such as manganese and silicon. As for the self-shielded flux cored wire, the flux should be additionally added with AL as a nitrogen removal agent. The purpose of adding the oxygen scavenger and the nitrogen scavenger above is to purify the molten metal.

slag forming agent

Calcium, potassium, sodium or silicon are welding slag forming agent, added in the flux can effectively protect the pool from the air pollution, welding slag can make the weld with a better appearance and rapid cooling can support full posture welding The pool. Welding slag coverage can also ease the molten metal cooling rate, this feature is particularly important for low-alloy steel welding.

arc stabilizer

Sodium and potassium keep the arc soft and smooth and reduce spatter.

alloy elements

The addition of alloying elements such as molybdenum, chromium, carbon, manganese, nickel and vanadium can improve (improve) the strength, ductility, hardness and toughness of the molten metal.

gas forming agent

Fluorite, limestone, etc. need to be added in the self-shielded flux cored wire to produce protective gas combustion.

2 types of welding slag

The composition of the flux determines the weldability of the welding consumables and the mechanical properties of the molten metal. If the flux composition is mainly acidic, it will generate acidic welding slag after welding. The same basic (limestone) flux will produce alkaline welding Slag. Acid system of welding consumables is very good, the arc smooth and stable welding process, the shape of a similar jet arc, spatter less, widely welcomed by welding personnel, mechanical melting of the molten metal but up to the AWS standard requirements.

Flux for the alkaline welding consumables can make the filler metal get very good ductility and toughness, but the operation is far worse than the acid system. Most of the droplet transition to the main ball transition, splash more.

The development of flux systems for low-alloy consumables combines the excellent mechanical properties of acid-based work and alkaline systems.


Welding discharge welding machine for cold welding wire used in surfacing or welding conditions at room temperature, welding one second after the characteristics of the wire temperature does not exceed 40 degrees Celsius, continuous welding not exceeding 80 degrees Celsius. Mainly used for some heat-resistant parts repair, welding repair, the temperature is generally controlled at 40 degrees Celsius, the wall thickness of 0.4-0.5 mm, the highest not higher than one hundred degrees Celsius.

Welding wire welding heat affected zone is very small, will not produce internal stress. Very suitable for casting defects, parts surface strain, wear, mold defects repair. Why the wire temperature is so low, because the wire melting is micro-melting state, in contact with the workpiece, the external force will soon form a small part of the short circuit to move the workpiece up, due to less melting, the workpiece is much larger. The temperature dissipated quickly. Wire temperature does not continue to rise throughout its redness, anti-red super capacity. Compared with ordinary wire, if the duration is too long, there will be a serious red wire, solder black phenomenon. Even if the welding, welding repair, prone to oxidation, dregs, welding is not high, etc., and affect its follow-up processing. 

CO2 welding

Carbon dioxide gas shielded arc welding (referred to as CO2 welding) shielding gas is carbon dioxide (CO2 + O2 sometimes mixed gas). Due to the special thermal physical properties of CO2 gas, it is not possible for molten metal to form a balanced axial free transition when using a conventional welding power source, which usually requires short circuits and necking of the droplet. Therefore, with MIG welding Compared to the free transition, splash more. However, if the use of high-quality welding machine, the appropriate choice of parameters, you can get a very stable welding process, so that splash to a minimum extent. Due to the low cost of the shielding gas used, good weld formation with short-circuit transitions, coupled with the use of deoxidizer-containing welding wire, results in a high-quality welded joint without internal defects. Therefore, this welding method has now become one of the most important welding methods of ferrous metals. CO2 vertical welding double-sided forming
