Lincoln Electric's APEX 30M mechanized controller Click image to enlarge

Lincoln Electric has introduced a lightweight and portable contoller and wire feeder for orbital welding, the APEX 30M.

The APEX 30M can be located up to 100 feet (30.5 m) from the welding power source while still giving the operator full system access through the pendant, making this controller a completely versatile solution for field and shop applications.

The APEX 30M controls and monitors processes for consistency and logs data for reporting and archiving needs in a variety of applications – structural, maritime, power generation, process piping and construction.

Operators can combine the APEX 30M with a HELIX M85 orbital weld head and a Power Wave S series welder or Vantage/Air Vantage ArcLink enabled engine driven welder/generator to create a completely versatile solution. On the job, this compact unit eliminates additional equipment, such as cranes, fixtures and platforms and simplifies cable management for easy portability. And, it requires minimal setup.

“The APEX 30M mechanized controller, designed with the operator in mind, can be located up to 100 feet from the welding power source allowing the operator to focus on the weld, not the equipment,” states Carlos Richmond, product manager of mechanized automation. “The new system offers portability and versatility of use and greater efficiency for achieving superior orbital MIG welds.”

Available accessories include the APEX operator pendant, Power Wave Advanced Process Module, Power Wave STT® Process Module and the HELIX Quick Release Track Ring and Shoe Extensions.
