Drive Rolls & Wire Guides
Drive rolls feed electrode wire from a wire spool into a compatible MIG (metal inert gas) gun. Wire guides help ensure proper positioning as the wire is fed during welding. Drive rolls and wire guides are compatible with specific brands and series of welding equipment. They are also compatible with certain sizes and types of wire. The drive rolls must be properly tensioned to prevent wire feeding issues, wire slippage, and wire deformation that can lead to blockages and excessive wear in the welding setup.
