iWeld™ Email Newsletter from Lincoln Electric

October 2015


In Booth N11021, Tennessee Rand™ and Easom Automation™ are collaborating on two custom integrated cells for the automotive industry, including tooling, part holding manipulation and robotic welding using new Lincoln Electric servo-driven wire drives - the AutoDrive® S for steel and the AutoDrive® SA for aluminum. Process Z™, a triple threat combination of electrode wire, waveforms and advanced equipment, makes it possible to achieve faster travel speeds while reducing porosity on galvanized material.  

In Booth N11015, Arc Products® will display orbital TIG and MIG equipment for the energy industry as well as mechanized column and boom equipment (N11022) for thicker materials and larger weldments. Harris Products Group® is ready to show you how to save on shielding gas consumption.

Definitely be sure to check out the new Square Wave TIG 200, the White Tail Camo™ Ranger® GXT and the VIKING™ 3350 White Tail Camo™ Welding Helmet.  

In Booth S951, our cutting companies bring it on - Torchmate® CNC cutting tables driven by Burny® power supplies, Wayne Trail® FlexLase® laser processing, PythonX® robotic CNC cutting for structural beam and tube and a Vernon Tool® MPM system for large scale pipe cutting and beveling.  

Be sure to visit Booth N11055 to talk with Wolf® Robotics, one of the top automation integrators in North America. Finally, cheer on amateur and professional welders as they compete for cash prizes in the AWS Certified Robotic Arc Welding (CRAW) competition using Lincoln Electric and Wolf Robotics robotic cells.  

We're working hard to make manufacturing successful - one customer at a time. MORE

The New Square Wave TIG 200. Game. Redefined.

Square Wave TIG 200

If you're looking for this year's show-stopper at FABTECH, look no further than the Square Wave® TIG 200 - a portable TIG and Stick welding machine that lets hobbyists, makers, small fabricators and craftsmen explore their creativity. It is designed to help expand your welding expertise. As your skills and confidence grow, you can take advantage of the Square Wave TIG 200’s additional functionality. No matter your skill level, you won’t be disappointed. The Square Wave TIG 200 provides smooth and stable AC TIG welding on aluminum and DC TIG welding on steel, stainless steel and chrome-moly. A user-friendly interface enables the operators to set it, forget it and weld. MORE

The PAPR - A Complete Air Purification System


Where welding operations are concerned, safety is directly connected to air quality. When welding must be performed in enclosed or other areas where it is difficult to provide effective ventilation or otherwise control exposure to welding fume, the last line of defense is personal protective equipment for the individual operator. The VIKING™ PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) provides the effective air-purification solution all day long. The PAPR is a complete system that purifies ambient air from the shop and delivers filtered, breathable air for as much as 8 hours without interruption. The two-speed blower drives air through the hose to a VIKING 3350 helmet rated for 1/1/1/1 optical clarity. A patent pending adjustable baffling system inside the helmet directs air away from eyes and keeps them from getting dry. The PAPR system has an Assigned Protection Factor of 25. Check it out at FABTECH. MORE

It Doesn't Get Much Simpler Than Flextec!

Flextec 500

Other machines that are sure to turn heads at FABTECH are our Flextec® multi-process welders that are easy to setup and easy to operate, but rugged and flexible enough to be used in construction, fabrication, shipbuilding and other heavy-duty applications. The new Flextec 500 features an increased duty cycle (450 amps at 100%), an updated control panel, and more feeder options (compatible with Lincoln Electric 14-pin connector analog AND 5-pin ArcLink®-equipped digital feeders).

Teach Your Trade. We'll Do the Rest.

Education at FABTECH 2015

Lincoln Electric is working hard to provide a comprehensive suite of products and services for educators - including instructors, administrators and students. At FABTECH, come and see our updated robotic education cell and Weld Pro® offline programming software, try out the VRTEX®, check out the REALWELD® and discuss the comprehensive web-based U/LINC™ curriculum packages. We'll also show you how to purchase consumables and welding gear using the Education Portal. MORE

All Things Aluminum

AutoDrive SA

A big part of our FABTECH display this year will be the Aluminum Welding Demo, which will feature a robotic cell welding aluminum cans with a PowerWave® S350 Advanced Process Welder and an AutoDrive® SA, a high-performance aluminum servo torch solution engineered to address the common problems associated with robotic aluminum welding. MORE

Step Into Automation


Auto-Mate® pre-engineered robotic cells create an easy entry point for first-time buyers and an affordable stepping stone to a more elaborate and sophisticated system further down the line. The systems enable MIG and flux-cored welding processes performed by a Fanuc® Arc Mate® 0iB robot driven by a Lincoln Electric Power Wave® R350 power source. See them in action at FABTECH. MORE
