Lincoln brings weld fume extraction manufacturing inhouse
- Published: June 1, 2017
Lincoln Electric has brought manufacturing for its weld fume extraction equipment and systems in-house, offering greater control over the manufacturing process, says the company. Because all fume removal solutions now are produced by Lincoln Electric, customers will have access to a complete line of products designed to be simple, reliable, effective and affordable.
“World class manufacturing processes and testing procedures are the fundamental building blocks for quality Lincoln Electric products. Controlling the entire manufacturing process ensures that the fume extraction systems meet our quality standards and are the most reliable products for our customers,” says Deanna Postlethwaite, business unit manager, environmental eystems for Lincoln Electric. “These solutions are vital to improving our customers’ jobsite safety.”
As evidence of its focus on quality manufacturing, which began December 2016, Lincoln Electric is offering a three-year warranty on fume extraction products, compared to the one or two-year warranty offered by competitive manufacturers.
Lincoln Electric’s weld fume extraction products will be made in the US with US and foreign content, which will result in quicker lead times and improved service and support, another sign of the company’s commitment to this product line. The first of these to launch will be Lincoln Electric’s portable, mobile and stationary fume extraction products—designed for ease of setup, operation and maintenance.
Pricing for the entire product line has been adjusted to reflect Lincoln Electric’s commitment to providing the lowest total cost of ownership for its weld fume control products. Customers who choose Lincoln Electric now can enjoy a cost savings of up to 30 percent over the lifetime of that equipment. Pricing on all fume extraction filters and accessories has also been adjusted, and can be purchased direct from Lincoln Electric through its online store: weldfumefilters.com.
