Lincoln Electric's Activ8x Pipe portable wire feederClick image to enlarge

Lincoln Electric has announced the Activ8x Pipe portable wire feeder, an addition to the Activ8X line of field-ready wire feeders.

Designed with weld processes specifically optimized for pipe welding, the Activ8X Pipe now allows users to take Lincoln’s root-to-cap weld processes—including STT Field and Pulsed MIG—out to the jobsite or right-of-way.

Built on the Activ8X wire feeder platform, the Activ8x Pipe is designed to withstand inclement conditions, from mud and rain to extreme heat or cold, while being lightweight enough to be transported around the jobsite.

In addition to having optimized weld processes—including STT Field, CV-MIG, CV-FCAW, and Pulsed MIG for steel and stainless steel applications—the Activ8X Pipe comes with an intuitive user interface so operators can control the welding process at the feeder, including memory options that allow for storage and selection of saved modes between passes.

Embedded CrossLinc and CableView technology simplifies system setup and use, eliminating the need for additional control cables or sense leads while providing full control of the welding process up to 200 ft. from the power source with no loss in arc stability.
