Welding Earth Clamps
What are welding earth clamps and what are they used for?
Welding earth clamps are essential to use during stick welding to earth the metal being welded. If the workpiece is not earthed the circuit will not be complete so there will be no arc or weld.
The earth clamp is attached to the workpiece close to the weld area on clean metal; if it is attached on rusty or painted metal the earth connection will be poor which will result in ‘arc blow’ causing spitting and stuttering of the weld operation.
We stock many different types of earth clamps including crocodile, magnetic, and screw clamps.
