MIG Welding Wire Speed and Voltage Chart

Recently, many people have decided to take up welding. Even though they might not have formal training, these individuals might offer decent projects.

If these jobs require the use of the MIG welding machine, the amateur welder should know how to adjust the item. For this reason, it would help if they used a wire speed and welding chart to get things sorted.

Are you looking for the ideal ways of adjusting your MIG welding? If yes, here are some of the recommended settings for the task.

If you want to work with this combo, you will have to use different settings based on the thickness of the wire and material. Let’s say you are working with 0.030″ wire thickness with a 9.5mm material thickness, you will have to use a voltage and wire speed of 20 and 375. But if you are using the same wire thickness with a 8mm material thickness, you can leave the voltage and wire speed on 19 and 340.

As expected, these settings can make your task easier. On top of that, it can also provide interesting effects on the job at hand.

Are you looking for the MIG wire speed and voltage speed for working with these conditions? Supposing you are dealing with 0.035″ wire thickness and material thickness of 9.5mm, set the machine with a voltage and wire speed of 21 and 310.

As for using the same wire thickness for a material that is 8mm thick, adjust the voltage and wire speed to 20.5 and 285. Normally, these settings can provide positive results.

If you have a welding project that involves these conditions, it would help if you got the right settings. For working with a wire thickness of 0.045″ and material thickness of 9.5, stick with a voltage and wire speed of 23 and 240. But if the task requires a material and wire thickness of 8, you can work with 22 and 280.

Supposing you are working with a 0.035 wire thickness and a material of 9.5mm thickness, it would help if you adjusted the device to 23 ( voltage) and 240 ( wire speed). As expected, these settings should offer good results.
