Control of the electric arc ignition process for inducing the slag pool for ESW is described. Algorithm of contact ignition of the arc from the first touch of a workpiece by wire electrode is given. The sharpened electrode tip and feeding of voltage from the power source to the fixed-electrode short-circuited to the workpiece are decisive conditions for reliable ignition of the arc. To transfer to the steady-state process, the electrode feed should be switched on with a lag after the arc ignition. Experimental data on the arc ignition are given.
Keywords: electroslag welding, ignition of welding arc, induction of slag pool, ignition control
