Abstract

 

The design and construction of a 5KVA electric-arc welding machine for welding ferrous and non-ferrous metals using locally available tools and materials is presented. The welding transformer on testing showed efficiency of 97%, a voltage regulation of 86% and a power factor of 0.8. The dual purpose electric welding machine combined the advantages of both the AC and DC Electric arc welding machine in one unit. This design costs N43,525.00 as compared to about N110,000.00 which is the total cost for separate AC and DC electric welding machine for similar capacity
