Heavy duty engine driven welder/generator
- June 24, 2015
Lincoln Electric's Vantage 520 SD engine driven welder/generator joins the larger Vantage 600 SD and Air Vantage 600 SD to form a Severe Duty group of welders for extreme environments.
Each is equipped with a Tier 4 Final compliant engine that meets all US EPA diesel fuel emission standards. It can handle a variety of processes, including stick, TIG, MIG, pipe and flux-cored welding, as well as 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 percent duty cycle and 450 amps/32 volts at 100 percent 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.
