Air plug on welding equipment
« on: August 10, 2017, 09:38:10 AM »
Hi guys
Could you please tell me, why do we need air on the welding equipment, if there is water (water cooling)
 Are They both cool the system or air for something else?
Thanks.

Nozzle blow after a torch clean to remove excess antispatter. That is what we do

Besides air blast as mentioned by jarm, torches that use a wire brake use air to actuate the brake.  Wire brakes are used to hold the wire in place when doing touch sensing.
Pac-Mig has torches that use pressurized air for cooling.
