Why should the FCA welding practice plates be large?

To determine

The reason for using large practice plate in FCA welding.

Explanation

Flux Cored Arc Welding involves larger plates in welding to offer enough area of weld zone. Thick and larger plates provide enough space to implement the skills required for welding. For making a groove on the surface of the parent metals the thickness should be equal to or more than 3/8-in. Larger thickness plates passed the test of ultimate thickness and therefore suitable for performing FCA welding operations.

To protect the parent metal from the excessive heat and high speed of weld larger plates are used. Plates with length lower than 12mm may fail to produce good quality weld as it turns red when the line of single weld is passed...
