To calibrate a welding system, you need to connect the equipment to a calibration station. The station measures the wire feed speed, voltage, and amperage of the tools and determines the gas flow rate of the welding source. Once the data has been gathered, the station software compares the values against the operating standards set by the American Welding Society.
A load bank test ensures your welding equipment can operate at a high level and maintain power without shutting down. It also identifies any weaknesses or other issues in the hardware, making it easier to address the problems with routine maintenance. Carrying out the test in a controlled environment and providing proactive treatment helps you avoid long-term costs. You have peace of mind that your welding machine can handle workload stress without malfunctioning.
