Some Facts about Welding Cable

Slide 2:

A welding cable consists of fine copper strands inside a tough, synthetic or natural rubber insulating jacket. Although it is an excellent conductor of electricity, copper has a degree of resistance to the electrons flowing through it .

Slide 3:

It is normal for some amount of resistance heating to occur in the cable. Properly sized welding cables may feel warm to the touch after prolonged welding .

Slide 4:

When the diameter of the cable is too small for the level of current flowing through it, the cable may overheat. This can result in a potential fire hazard, as well as damage to the cable itself .

Slide 5:

Breakdown of the insulation jacket can create an electrical shock hazard .

Slide 6:

An oversized cable for a given amperage level does not conduct current more effectively than a properly sized cable.

Slide 7:

A cable with a larger diameter typically costs more per foot or meter than a cable with a smaller diameter because it has a greater number of copper strands.
