Welding Arc Blow Causes & Remedies

Arc Blow is the deflection of arc from its normal path because of magnetic forces. When electrons flow, they create lines of magnetic force that circle around the path of flow. These lines of magnetic force are referred to as magnetic flux lines. They space themselves evenly along a current-carrying wire. If the wire is bent, the flux lines on one side are compressed together, and those on the other side are stretched out. The unevenly spaced flux lines try to straighten the wire so that the lines can be evenly spaced once again. The force that they place on the wire is usually … Continue reading Welding Arc Blow Causes & Remedies
