The Lincoln Electric Company Unveils Orbital MIG Welding System

The Lincoln Electric Company has unveiled an orbital metal inert gas, or MIG, welding system. Combined with the Lincoln Electric Power Wave technology, the system redefines industry-wide parameters for quality, consistency and productivity. The system is driven by the APEX 3000 Mechanized Controller, and it pairs with the HELIX M85 weld head and track ring. Each component in the system has the ability to operate together, while the Power Wave advanced process welder can function independently. The HELIX M85 weld head, as a digital system, calculates and controls travel time, weld speed and other variables, thereby alleviating complicated setup work on the front end. The track ring design allows the operator to install or remove the track in seconds. It also eliminates binding and compensates for work surface heat expansion. The gear-driven track resists wear, ensuring quality and consistency. The system also features an ergonomic, hand-held pendant with icon-based interface and full-color screen.

Lincoln Electric Introduces Vantage 520 SD Engine-Driven Welder / Generator

Lincoln Electric introduced the Vantage 520 SD engine-driven welder /generator, which joins the larger Vantage 600 SD and Air Vantage 600 SD to form a Severe Duty group of welders suitable for such extreme environments as mining, construction and pipe welding. Each is equipped with a Tier 4 Final (T4F) compliant engine that meets all new EPA diesel fuel emission standards. The Vantage 520 SD is engineered to handle a variety of processes, including: stick welding, TIG welding, MIG welding, pipe welding, flux-cored wire welding, and arc gouging. To deliver improved arc characteristics and other advantages, the Vantage SD series welders share a new digital platform. The results are smoother arc action, faster arc response and improved pipe welding capabilities, including reduced spatter. New pulsing capabilities provide improved arc control for out-of-position work and can be used to reduce heat input, resulting in less distortion of the base material. ArcLink digital communication enables fast, reliable digital communication with advanced wire feeders like the Power Feed 25M portable semiautomatic wire feeder or other components. With access to the Power Feed 25M, welding teams can take advantage of user memory presets for common repeated welding application procedures, as well as operator limits and lockouts. Both features help eliminate operator error on critical welds. The Vantage 520 SD features a Deutz 34.8 horsepower D2.9L4 engine that enables the welder to produce 520 amps/30 volts at 60% duty cycle and 450 amps/32 volts at 100% duty cycle. In addition, the 520 SD is capable of delivering to 11,000 watts single-phase or 17,000 watts three-phase, 120/240 volt AC generator power.

Lincoln Electric Introduces the VIKING PAPR 3350 Welding Helmet

Lincoln Electric introduced the VIKING PAPR 3350 Welding Helmet The PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) is a complete powered system that draws air from the environment through a HEPA filter located on the belt and delivers filtered air in the breathing zone within a premium-level VIKING auto-darkening welding helmet. This model, which offers dual airflow speed, is powered by a battery that can last a full eight-hour shift without interruption. A patent-pending adjustable baffling system inside the helmet directs airflow away from the eyes to avoid dryness. The lightweight design of the helmet and belt pack allow for unrestricted movement. The VIKING PAPR is equipped with a 3350 Series Welding Helmet that has a perfect 1/1/1/1 optical clarity rating (EN379).
