With considerably more productive processes such as MIG/MAG welding taking over the welding industry, the role of stick welding (MMA) has become smaller in recent decades. This is why the majority of welding equipment manufacturers have focused their most significant efforts on MIG/MAG welding rather than stick welding, and introduced new features made possible by new power source technologies. Pulsed MIG/MAG welding, for example, has been in extensive use for a few decades now, but similar welding current pulsing is only available for stick welding in a few devices.
Kemppi has developed a new easy-to-use pulse function for its Master 315 stick welding machine. This pulse function can be used extensively in various stick welding applications.
