Welding cable grounds ensure your welding machine is grounded prior to welding to prevent breaks in the electrical current during the welding process. They help prevent electrical shock, protect welding equipment from damage or malfunction, and ensure that enough heat can be produced to create a high-quality weld. Welding cable connectors and lugs create secure connections between the welding cable and the welding machine and can also be used to connect two lengths of welding cable to create a longer cable. Cable reels keep welding cables organized when not in use. They keep loose cables off of floors to help prevent tripping hazards and prevent damage to cables due to kinking or crushing.
