The Taurus contact tips are manufactured from a hard and high conductivity copper alloy resulting in less frequent replacements saving you on welder’s downtime and consumable costs. The contact tips are one of the most frequent components to be replaced on the MIG torch. It is responsible for guiding the wire and transferring the current from the conductor tube (swan neck) through the MIG wire to the work piece. It is important to choose a correct size contact tip for the welding application to keep the welding performance at its best. Using an incorrect tip size that is too big or too small can create major problems like micro-arcing, overheating, friction and wire jamming, which all can lead to wire burn-back. Copper is naturally soft which makes the current transfer easier. Keeping this in mind and other things like heat, it causes the contact tip to soften and due to wire wear it deforms the inner diameter of the contact tip. If the contact tip is not replaced often the deform gets worse which can lead to arc-start issues, burn-back and poor welds like lack of penetration.
