TIG welding whereas many other functions may only be available on higher specification
machines. For welding today we will be using an R-tech Tig201 Tig Welder which is a fully
featured Tig welder and its picture below.
1) Base current control - the adjust the main welding current.
2) Pulse peak current adjustment - This sets pulse amperege and must be set above the base
(main) current amperege. If set to zero pulse welding is disabled.
3) Pulse frequency adjustment - This sets how often pulse will occur 0.5-25hz.
4) Up slope - Adjustment 0-10 seconds. The main welding current raises from minimum
amperege to main current selected in time selected.
5) Pulse width - Tjis sets length of pulse 0.1 - 0.9 seconds.
6) Down slope - Down slope adjustment 0-10 seconds. The main welding current decreases from
main amperege to minimum amperege in time.
7) AC/DC selector switch - This switch selects either DC gor welding steels or AC for welding
8) 2/4 way selector switch - 2/4 step trigger mode switch ( TIG welding cam meither be done in 2
or 4 step mode. When the trigger mode is in the 2 step position.
9) MMA (TIG mode switch) - Switches between TIG (GTAW) and MMA STICK (SMAW)
10) AC squareware frequency adjuster - This adjusment 20-25hz. Traditional TIG Welders have a
fix frequency of 60hz, the TG201 advanced technology allows AC frequency adjustment from 2025hz.As you turn yup the frequency the width of arc from the tungsten decreases allowing more
control of weld pool and an increases travel speed. The pitch noise of weld increase when AC
frequency is turned up this is normal. 100-120 hz is the (sweet spot) for most AC welding.
11) LED display - 3 digit led meter is used to display the preset (before welding) amperege and
actual amperege (when welding).
12) Gas flow adjustment - the flow adjustment 1-25 seconds. The gas keeps flow after weld has
finished, this cool and stops tungsten from getting contaminated.

1) The welder - Inside the welder you will find a spool of MIG wire and a series of rollers
that pushes the wire out to the welding torch. The large spool wire should be held on with
a tension nut.
2) The gas supply - MIG welder there will be cylinder of gas behing MIG. This is either
100% Argon or a mixture ofCO2 and Argon. Open the main valve of the cylinder and
make sure there is some gas inside. Your gas should be reading between 0 and 2500 PSI
in the tank and the regulator should be set between 15 and 25 PSI depending how you
would like to set.
3) The welding torch - the MIG torch consist of a trigger that controls the wire feed and
the flow of electricity. The wire is guided by a replaceabel copper tip that is made of each
specific welder.
4) The earth clamp - the earth clamp is cathode (-) in the circuit and completes the circuit
between the welder, the welding torch and the project. It should either be clipped directly
to the piece of metal being welding or onto a metal welding table. The earth clamp must
be making good contact with piece being welded for it to work so be sure to grind off any
rust or pain that may be preventing it from making connection with your work.
