**What is MIG amperage?**

How many amps do you really need for a MIG welder? In average you need 140 amps for 115 volts welders in order to weld up to ¼” thick steel and around 200 amps for 220 volts welders and weld up to ½” thick material.

### How are MIG amps calculated?

001 inch of material thickness requires 1 amp of output: . 125 inch = 125 amps….Getting the most from your machine.

For wire size | Multiply by | Ex. using 1/8 inch (125 amps) |
---|---|---|

.030 inch | 2 inches per amp | 2 x 125 = 250 ipm |

.035 inch | 1.6 inches per amp | 1.6 x 125 = 200 ipm |

.045 inch | 1 inch per amp | 1 x 125 = 125 ipm |

**What does MIG welder stand for?**

Metal Inert Gas

MIG stands for Metal Inert Gas. Only inert gases or gas mixtures are used for the shielding gas when MIG welding. Typical inert gases used for MIG welding are argon and helium. These gases are usually used for MIG welding of aluminium and other non-ferrous metals.

**What size breaker do I need for a 250 amp welder?**

You can weld up to around a 3.2mm rod off a 16 amp breaker, assuming a normal UK mains supply. In some cases (400A transformer welders, long power leads out to the welder and the job) you might have to go to a 32A breaker. Basically you can do all normal welding work off a 16A breaker.

**How do you calculate current for a welder?**

To calculate power consumption of your welding machine you have to multiply the wattage of the welding iron by the operational hours. For example, if we are using the same above welding iron for 1 hour of welding, then the power consumption will be 4.314 kW X 1 hour, 4.314 kWh.
