"Bringing the Welding World Together"

Excelloy 57 AC/DC - :

Cutting, beveling, and piercing electrodes for all metals AC or DC straight electrode-

High-speed cutting electrode for use with all standard arc welding equipment. No special skills, oxygen tanks, or air compressors are required. The special coating protects the electrode from overheating.


Applications

For cutting, beveling, and piercing of cast iron, stainless steel, manganese steel, carbon steel, malleable iron, aluminum, copper, bronze, nickel, and nickel alloys. Ideal for cleaning out defects and removing rivets.


Procedure

For the fastest and cleanest cuts use DC straight polarity (electrode-). When piercing, hold electrode vertical to work, strike arc, and push in and out until hole has been formed. When cutting sheets or plates, start at the edge, strike arc, and use electrode like a saw; push and pull with the electrode at a 45 degree angle to work piece. In all cases the arc must be kept as short as possible.
