took over 2000 hours to develop this manual MIG process control resource. This
program is suited for all MIG welds on carbon steels, alloy steels and stainless
applications. The 280 page Power Point CD, requires approx. eight hours to present
and enables a uniform approach to MIG weld shop process optimization attaining
consistent weld quality at the lowest possible weld costs.
weld shops work with weld procedures and most weld shops will have variables that
can influence the weld quality and productivity. The question is, how optimum
are those weld procedures and how do the weld personnel react to the variables
that daily impact their weld quality or productivity?
EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS THE ROOT CAUSE OF WELD DEFECTS: Imagine a weld shop in which
all the manual MIG weld personnel are aware of the root causes for the MIG weld
defects and those and these individuals have the MIG process control capability
necessary to instantly change and optimize the weld settings to minimize the opportunity
for weld defects.
 EVERYONE COMPLETELY
UNDERSTANDS THE PROCESS: Imagine a weld shop in which all weld personnel will
select t the most suitable weld transfer mode and instantly set optimum, spatter
free, MIG short circuit, globular, pulsed or spray parameters for any MIG weld
wire on any steel or stainless parts.
 EVERYONE KNOWS THE WELD DEPOSITION
RATE POTENTIAL: Imagine a weld shop in which all weld personnel are aware of the
optimum MIG weld settings that deliver maximum weld deposition rates for any application.
SOMETHING OF GREAT VALUE IS COMPLEX, SOMEONE SHOULD MAKE IT SIMPLE:
process control training package presents
the "MIG Clock Method" which Ed developed over three decades. The
MIG process control Clock Method provides a unique, EASY approach for weld personnel
to remember the weld data necessary to attain optimum MIG quality / productivity
on any steels, alloy steels, stainless, nickel or aluminum applications. The program
also provides the most comprehensive training approach to MIG "weld defect

 This training resource is the only global resource available
that provides your organization with the reasons and logic, why you should have
concerns when you utilize pulsed MIG, Inverters or multipurpose welding equipment
on carbon steel and stainless applications > 7 mm.
 The root cause
of all of your potential weld defects are graphically revealed and the practical
cost affective process control resolutions are provided.
Weld costs are driven by understanding the relationships between the application,
the weld consumables, the
weld transfer modes and the
wire feed rates utilized. This program simplifies that process relationship and
provides weld personnel with the expertise necessary to attain optimum, weld deposition
rates on all applications.

and all the weld decision makers take a uniform approach to weld process controls
and all weld personnel daily walk the same path to the achievement of delivering
optimum, manual MIG weld quality and productivity.
CD training program provides many cost effective benefits:
more than five decades, when establishing weld parameters or dealing with the
common weld variables that influence weld quality and productivity, most weld
personnel will "play around" with their
MIG weld controls.
This CD program provides a unique, easy to remember
method to optimize manual weld parameter selection for any weld transfer mode
on 1 mm to any thickness, carbon steels, alloy steels or stainless applications.
Welders will fully understand the optimum manual weld parameters and parameter
ranges of short circuit, globular, pulsed and spray and weld personnel will be
aware of when to switch from one mode to another. In
this program every optimum MIG weld setting is provided for all common wire diameters
using the short circuit, globular, spray, and pulsed modes.
AND WELD COSTS:

been looking for a simple approach to understanding weld costs and always attaining
maximum weld deposition rates for optimized weld production,

program provides the most extensive, root cause analysis of MIG weld defects for
all applications. This graphic, CD power point presentation and simple approach
to MIG defects and weld defect resolution, will ensure all your weld personnel
fully understand the MIG weld process requirements for weld defect prevention.
ACHIEVE BEST WELD PRACTICES, YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE
SALESMANSHIP FROM WELD EQUIPMENT AND CONSUMABLE DECISIONS.
Look around your weld shop and count the many different types of MIG power sources
your company has purchased over the last decade. Should you purchase an Inverter,
a costly Pulsed power source or regular CV equipment. Ed shows you what you can
attain with the lowest cost MIG equipment and you can be sure the welds that result
will meet any productivity and code or specification requirements. Selecting a
single, durable MIG power source for the weld shop, improves operator familiarity,
simplifies weld process training, reduces weld equipment cost and reduces maintenance
How many different weld wire and gas mixes have you tried in
the last few years? This program cuts through weld equipment / consumables salesmanship
and provides the optimum products for your organization.

Ed always focuses on process simplification, to present this program requires
no weld process control expertise.
As welding is an important function
in your organization, ensure to include all weld decision makers, welders, technicians,
