Collection: Welding and Heating Tips

Contact tips are one of the most frequently misunderstood and most often replaced components of a welding gun setup. The contact tip is responsible for guiding the wire and transferring the current from the conductor tube—sometimes referred to as a swanneck or gooseneck—through the filler wire and ultimately to the workpiece. Its critical functions include current transfer and wire targeting.

A heating tip is attached to a torch handle with mixers that mix the fuel and oxygen and supply it to the tip.
