Metal-cored wire improves welding of thin sheets

Metal-cored wire improves welding of thin sheetsESAB is launching Coreweld 46 LS, a new generation of metal-cored wire based on the company's cored-wire surface technology. It has been developed for the welding of thin plate with a minimum thickness of 1.0mm and provides fabricators with minimal silica islands and a substantially faster and higher-quality weld compared to solid MAG wire.

Compared with solid wires, Coreweld 46 LS benefits from an extremely wide spray arc parameter envelope that starts at welding currents as low as 160A. Switching from solid wire to Coreweld 46 LS will, in most cases, require no change in the positioning of the welding gun so the conversion time is limited to the optimisation of welding parameters.

Coreweld 46 LS is available in 225kg Marathon Pac bulk drums for major downtime savings compared with using standard 300mm diameter spools.
