Bulk wire systems for automatic welding machines are desirable for a couple of reasons. First is eliminating 95% of your wire spool changes. In the field of internal Hot Wire Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW-HW) for sour service there is a second more important reason. Stopping in the middle of a critical weld is not recommended. At the same time, the nickel alloys are expensive so you hate to throw away $20+ per pound wire just to ensure that you will have enough to finish your weld.
John Sander with Wire Wizard® https://lnkd.in/eqc2UDT loaned us a demo unit of their FLEX Guide module with Wire Pilot® feed assist. Our friends at Special Metals sent us a partial drum of Inconel 625® wire for testing*. Dave Hebble set it up in our lab and you are welcome to visit anytime.
I will let Dave Hebble explain it all in the video
*ARC Specialties does not sell wire or take fees for product placement. ARC does sell Wire Wizard® but accepts no fees for testing.
