Mig Tips

The welding Mig tips aka contact tips are highly misunderstood components in a MIG gun setup. Choosing the correct contact tip for your welding application and understanding how to keep it performing at its best is just as critical as anything else needed to produce a quality weld.

Using a contact tip that is too big or too small can create problems such as micro arcing, overheating, friction, and wire jamming. All of which can lead to wire burn back.

How Contact Tips Impact Welding Operation Costs

Mig tips are one of the most frequently replaced components on a MIG gun. The contact Mig tip is responsible for guiding the wire and transferring the current from the conductor tube. Sometimes referred to as a swan neck or gooseneck through the filler wire and ultimately to the workpiece.

Its critical functions include current transfer and wire targeting.

Contact Tip Size Matters

The Mig tip size generally determines what wire size you can use and the amount of filler material that will be required to be distributed during welding.

When a contact tip begins to wear, the through-hole elongates and loses electrical conductivity, which greatly affects the gun’s ability to transfer current to the welding wire.

Additionally, the tool center point (TCP) begins to fluctuate as the wire dances around inside the now oversized tip. These conditions lead to poor arc starts, lower penetration, and decreased weld quality.

Likewise, contact tip threads come in a range of sizes from M6 to M12. These sizes are entirely dependent on the contact tip holder size, but the thread sizes correlate directly to the rating of the MIG gun.

Choosing the correct contact tip for your welding application and understanding how to keep it performing at its best is just as critical as choosing all the other components and parameters needed to produce a quality weld.
