WiseThin+

Productive sheet and position welding

Increase welding speed and achieve better quality


WiseThin+ is developed for faster and productive manual sheet welding, for ferrous and non ferrous materials. With the process you can weld in any position and also down hand, even with wide gap or varying gap tolerances. Weld pool control is excellent and the amount and size of spatters reduced. WiseThin+ provides even 25% lower heat input than normal MIG/MAG welding, reducing material distortion and post weld rework.

Process offers excellent welding characteristics in plate thicknesses 0.8 - 3.0 mm, even with CO₂ shielding gas. Welding speed is higher than in traditional short arc welding. Refinement of the process is based on accurate and real-time voltage measurement and filler wire droplet detachment. Thus droplet transfer to the weld pool is soft and controlled. WiseThin+ is a MIG/MAG welding process 131, 133, 135, 136 and 138 according to standard EN ISO 4063. WiseThin+ welding process is a standard feature in FastMig X Intelligent setup, and optional feature in FastMig X Regular and Pipe setups.

Benefits

  • Higher welding speed than in traditional shot arc welding
  • High quality welds, reduced post weld rework
  • Lower heat input and thus also less deformation
  • Decreased amount and size of spatters      
  • Stable arc for positional welding for thicker plate thicknesses
  • Excellent arc ignition for tack and intermittent welds
  • Savings in welding costs as you get mixed gas welding characteristics with pure CO₂
  • Down hand and all positional welding
  • Easy to make short welds because of accurate arc control
  • Suitable for brazing
  • Expands the parameter window and thus reduces the need to use smaller wire diameters
  • Soft and pleasant arc characteristics
  • Easy to use

20 % faster welding with WiseThin+

WiseThin+ welding gives excellent welding characteristics for position welding in thicker plates. The arc is steady and easy to handle and the arc sound is uniform all the time because of stable short circuiting. The weld pool flows to the joint smoothly and there is no risk of undercutting. As a result there are no spatters.

Position PF, 1.2 mm Fe solid wire, Ar+ CO₂ or CO₂ shielding gas, Plate thickness 6.0 mm + 6.0 mm, Wfs = 2.65 m/min → I = 105 A and U = 18.5 V, Fine tuning setting +1.5.

Save 40% in shielding gas costs

With the WiseThin+ optimized welding process you can weld with CO₂ shielding gas, and still get the same quality as with mixed gas. This creates 40% savings in gas costs.
