ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has released a new line of arc welding equipment featuring a unique capability to “mix and match” wire feeders, control panels and power supplies to customize the equipment for the user’s applications. The new line offers four wire feeder/control panel selections that can each be combined with one of three power sources. If the user wants to increase the functionality of the equipment in the future, this can be easily accomplished by simply upgrading the control panel or power source.
ESAB’s Origo™ Feed and Aristo™ Feed units are reliable and flexible to meet the needs of many applications. A sturdy galvanized metal casing makes them ideal for use in tough environments. Electronically controlled feeding ensures an accurate and stable arc, while the four-roll feeder mechanism with grooves in both the feed and pressure rolls provide a stable feed with low wear on the wire. All adjustments are made on the man-machine communication panels of the feeder, which provides a good overview of the settings for easy use. The feeders feature rolls of 30 mm diameter for wires up to 0.062 in. (1.6 mm) diameter.
The Origo Feed 3004 with M23 panel is a sturdy easy-to-use welder with features for reliable MIG, FCAW and Stick welding, including 2/4 stroke, gas pre/post flow, digital V/A meters, gas purge/wire inching, memory for 3 parameter sets, quick connectors for short set-up times, and the ESAB TrueArcVoltage™ system that measures the correct arc voltage value independent of the length of the interconnection cable, return cable or welding torch.
The Origo™ Feed 3004 with MA24 panel adds QSet™, a unique function to optimize welding parameters in short arc for solid wire welding in stainless and carbon steels. Simply set the wire feed speed and QSet™ will automatically select the correct welding parameters for the required wire/gas combination. QSet will automatically adjust during the process to maintain the optimum wire/gas usage and prevent waste of resources. This feeder also offers creep start, crater filling and pre-programmed synergic lines.
The Aristo™ Feed 3004 with U6 panel offers all the above capabilities, plus the ability to create up to 60 synergic lines, allowing ”one-knob” set up for welding with solid wire, cored wire, metal-cored wire and various gas mixes. It also offers memory for 10 parameter sets.
The Aristo™ Feed 3004 with U82 Plus panel offers all of the above and adds ESAB’s SuperPulse™ technology for exceptional heat control. This remote pendant provides the ability to create up to 92 synergic lines with memory for 255 parameter sets. The user simply selects the process, such as MIG or MIG Plus, wire diameter, wire type and shielding gas, and the machine sets all other parameters. This allows even inexperienced welders to produce quality welds with ease.
The three power sources feature chopper technology with digital (CANbus) communications and control system that use fewer cables to increase operational reliability. An optional dust filter handles tough and dirty environments and prevents grinding dust and metal particles from entering the chassis. The Mig 4002c provides 400A @ 60% duty cycle; the Mig 5002 c provides 500A @ 60% duty cycle, and the Mig 6502c provides 650A @ 60% duty cycle.
