Multi-process power source, feeder
Warrior is a multi-process power source and feeder for GMAW (MIG), FCAW (Flud-Cored), SMAW (Stick) and GTAW (TIG), as well as ACAG (Arc Gouging) that delivers up to 500 amps at 60 per cent duty cycle.
It carbon arc gouges with electrodes up to 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) diameter, welds .030 – 5/64 in. (0.8 – 2 mm) flux-cored and solid wires, and has a full range of SMAW (Stick) capabilities with excellent 7018 and 6010 performance. Warrior’s durable external body withstands the elements. Its’ IP23 rating is designed to endure harsh outdoor environments, up to 60° driving rain. Ergonomically designed handles are built to withstand mechanical hoisting, and double bend 14 gauge steel side panels protect Warrior against collisions and drops.
Remote control oscillator
The portable design of this heavy duty remote control oscillator makes it easy to handle and setup. This compact unit increases productivity and improves weld quality by providing precise automation of welding applications. Mounted on a KAT travel carriage, the oscillator imparts pendulum, tangential or step motion to the welding gun with adjustable stroke widths, speeds and dwell times. Also, a wide range of weld patterns can be produced. This advanced oscillation package is designed to minimize weld defects such as poor penetration, incomplete fusion, overlap and undercut. By combining welding gun oscillation movement with the precision controlled travel speed of the KAT carriage, up to 10 weld programs can be produced and stored.
Loctite SF7900 Ceramic Shield for welding is a silicone-free sprayable protective coating that prevents spatter adhesion on MIG/MAG welding equipment for up to eight hours with just one application. It’s designed for use on manual and automatic MIG/MAG welding, laser/plasma cutting and spot welding equipment. By delivering physical and thermal protection, it increases welding equipment service life by four to five times, and reduces the cost of consumables by up to 70 per cent, says Henkel. The coating sprays on easily and dries in seconds.
GMAW wire for trailer manufacturing
SuperGlaze 5356 is an engineered aluminum alloy GMAW wire designed for applications in the trailer manufacturing industry. The alloy system provides optimal puddle clarity and arc action, as well as excellent wetting for semi-automatic and high productivity automatic applications.
The company claims the GMAW wire provides excellent performance on high speed groove welds on formed truck panel applications, as well as robotic fillet welds on trailer tanks, requiring minimal post-weld clean-up. The wire is available in standard diameters of .035 in. (0.9 mm) and 1/16 in. (1.6 mm) wound in 1 and 20 lb (.5 and 9 kg) plastic spools, as well as 16 lb (7.2 kg) steel spools.
Millermatic 350P Aluminum MIG welder is a dedicated aluminum welding power source with a true torque push-pull design, electronic wire spool brake, Trigger Schedule Select and synergic capabilities in MIG and pulsed MIG weld settings. It features six aluminum-dedicated pulse programs, including new settings for .040 wire. A jog and purge feature allows operators to jog wire or purge gas and preset gas pressure at the regulator before welding. The welder retains the Auto Gun Detect feature. It has a direct connection for Miller 10-pin XR-Aluma PRO and XR Pistol Grip air cooled push-pull guns.
TIG, stick welding
The Thermal Arc 186 AC/DC inverter for HF TIG, Lift TIG and Stick welding features 15 amps more TIG welding power than its predecessor and features a new digital operator interface. It provides a welding output of 10 to 200 amps with a duty cycle of 20 per cent when TIG welding 200 amps/18 volts. Stick welding duty cycle is 16 per cent when welding at 120 amps/26.6 volts and is suitable for welding with 6011, 6013, 7014, 7018 and other electrodes up to 5/32 in. (4 mm).
