Transition from spool gun to All-in-One MIG system with synergic Pulsed MIG capabilities increases travel speeds, reduces birdsnesting, spatter, time associated with switching out spools and provides greater accessibility to tight spots. 

Aluminum makes up the bulk of Sportsfield Specialties’ work. Goalposts, for instance, are constructed mostly of 11 ga. 6063. The crossbar and vertical posts are schedule 40 aluminum pipe.

Synergic Pulsed MIG welding controls allow the welder to adjust wire feed speed via a knob on the MIG gun. As the welder manipulates the wire feed speed, the system automatically adjusts voltage and amperage to match the speed.

The transition from a spool gun to a push-pull feeding system has allowed the company to rely on larger spools of wire, which allows welders to work for a longer period of time without changing out the wire. 

Because of the pulsing of the current in Pulsed MIG welding, the operator can vary the heat input into the parts and weld thinner gauge material without burning through or warping the part.
