Lincoln Electric Flex Feed 84 wire feederClick image to enlargeFlex Feed 84 is Lincoln Electric's latest additon to its line of wire feeders. The company says it delivers consistent feeding over long conduit runs iwth large diameter wires up to 2.4 mm (3/32 in.).

This new feeder offers a flexible, modular design, including single-bench, dual-bench and boom-mount configurations that can be converted as workspace requirements change. It’s ideal for use in heavy and general fabrication, construction, structural and heavy equipment applications and includes a built-in interface for hard automation.

Featuring digital meters with preset voltage and wire-feed speed, the Flex Feed 84 displays actual voltage and current during welding and also offers four user memories to save repeated procedures. The system also allows the welding engineer to set passcode-secured limits and lockouts to control welding procedures.

Its patented advanced MaxTrac wire drive has a rugged, cast-aluminum feed plate that protects the wire and ensures consistent wire feeding. Patented, tool-less drive rolls allow operators to easily change wire size or type, while tool-less, split wire guides ensure uninterrupted feeding and prevent “birdnesting.”

Brass gun adapters provide superior electrical connections, reducing voltage drops and simplifying connections. A user-selectable, wire-retract function pulls the hot wire back into the nozzle after welding to prevent operator injury. Dual models can be equipped with an optional Power Path contactor that electrically isolates the non-active wire drive and gun.
