Welding aluminum with straight MIG gun

Share This Post

The Warrior and Aristo Mig systems from ESAB provide Trailstar with reliable, highly efficient performance through two daily shifts of high arc-on time, high amperage welding.

However, in Trailstar’s eyes, the real rock star of their MIG aluminum system is the ST-21. This MIG gun is water-cooled all the way to the tip, is rated at 600 amps with any shielding gas, has an in-line nozzle and pistol grip handle. Because 1/16-in. aluminum has sufficient columnar strength, it can be run through push-only MIG systems with gun cables up to 12 ft. long.

“If you’re welding aluminum, the ST-21 is what you want. It’s the Cadillac of welding guns,” says Mike Schmidt, Trailstar’s service and shop manager.
