NEW DIMENSION OF HIGH EFFICIENCY GMAW WELDING:
SUPRAMIG® HD WIRES Ø 1.32 MM

Lincoln Electric developed Supramig® HD ø 1,32 mm wire upon request and in cooperation with leading earth moving equipment producers.

Tests show that productivity improves with up to 20% by simply switching from diameter 1,2 mm with a standard MIG wire to the Supramig® HD ø 1,32 mm.

In addition, it has been noted that welders preferred Supramig® HD 1.32 mm due to:
• Less spatter and cleaning
• Same deposition rate with lower WFS
• Less vibration in the torch and no feeding problems
