METAL PREPARATION: Alcam, Inc. - Maintenance & Repair Welding Electrodes... and related Welding Supplies

 
  • METAL PREPARATION

    Alcam #1 (Gouging Rod)
    AC or DC-S

    Prepare cracked welds. Perfect for Cast Iron repairs and the removal of damaged hard surfacing.
    · AC or DC straight (DO NOT USE DC-R POLARITY)
    · All Position.
    · Gouges
    · Removes Cracked Welds
    · Works on all Metals,
    · Clean
    · Low Smoke
    · No Slag Residue
    · Ideal For Pre-Heat On Cast Iron
    · Does Not Arc Through Coating

    APPLICATIONS:
    Gouging of ferrous and non-ferrous metal. Can be used to remove unwanted or defective weld metal, prepare parts prior to welding, remove risers, and/or reduce large areas of metal prior to machining. Will remove stainless welds.

    PROCEDURE:

    For a proper arc, strike the rod to preheat the core wire, lay the rod on the work, position at starting point and tilt. Once the arc is obtained, drop the rod to 10º off the work, and push in the direction of travel. As a molten puddle forms in front of the rod, give a slight push to remove molten material. The depth of the groove can be adjusted by the angle of the rod. For heavy removal of material, we recommend using the Alcam #2. The #2 rod can be angled up to 45º and can cut off unwanted metal using sawing action.

    APPLICATIONS:
    Gouging and chamfering of ferrous and non-ferrous metal. Can be used to remove unwanted or defective weld metal, prepare parts prior to welding, remove risers, and/or reduce large areas of metal prior to machining. Will remove stainless welds.

    PROCEDURE:
    For a proper arc, strike the rod to preheat the core wire, lay the rod on the work, position at starting point and tilt. Once the arc is obtained, drop the rod to 10º off the work, and push in the direction of travel. As a molten puddle forms in front of the rod, give a slight push to remove molten material. The depth of the groove can be adjusted by the angle of the rod. For piercing just press the rod to the work at 90º. The pierced hole will be free of slag on both sides (up to 3/8” base material) and able to accept a nut and bolt. For heavy removal of material, angle the rod up to 45º and cut off unwanted metal using sawing action.
