ESAB is proud to be the sole provider of welding equipment for Season One of Metal Shop Masters, a new Netflix reality TV series premiering globally on Friday, September 10, 2021. The show features seven competitors, five men and two women, who face off in elimination-style fabrication challenges
ROBUSTFEED U82 WIRE FEEDER OFFERS UNMATCHED COMBINATION OF ADVANCED PROCESS CONTROLS AND EXTREME DURABILITY
RobustFeed also offers Red Dot Award-winning ergonomics and usability. ESAB has launched the RobustFeed U82 wire feeder, which includes a full suite of advanced process control functions that help users increase competitiveness through consistent weld quality and appearance, address workforce skill issues, improve productivity and reduce operating costs through more uptime. The feeder accepts 200 and 300 mm wire spools and is designed to work with ESAB’s Aristo® 500ix and Aristo Mig 4004i Pulse power sources for MIG/MAG, pulsed MIG, flux cored and TIG welding, as well as carbon arc gouging.
For fabrication and construction firms that need reliable and efficient welding systems that can withstand rugged industrial environments, ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced its Fabricator EM 401i, EM 401iw and EM 501w inverter-based welding power sources and associated wire feeders for MIG/MAG and flux cored welding. The 401iw and 501iw feature a factory-integrated water cooler. Fabricator controls simplify operation by optimising arc performance for the wire and gas combination selected with predefined settings, and operators can independently adjust wire feed speed and voltage at the feeder. For process flexibility, Fabricator also provides an MMA welding output.
ESAB launched its new Savage A40 Air helmet, designed to partner with ESAB’s existing Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR). Helmets such as the Savage A40 Air are essential for workers in situations where welding fumes and particulates are a concern, such as for some cored wires, working in confined or poorly ventilated spaces and for protecting operators from hexavalent chromium fumes, which are generated from stainless steel, chrome alloys and chrome-coated metals.
EXATON 19.9.NB HF WIRE WITH NIOBIUM AND HIGH FERRITE PREVENTS CRACKING IN MULTI-PASS STAINLESS STEEL SAW APPLICATIONS
ESAB has introduced Exaton 19.9.Nb HF, classified as an AWS A5.9: ER347 as well as an EN ISO 14343-A S 19 9 Nb, is a 300 series austenitic steel submerged arc welding wire with niobium and high ferrite to further increase weld deposit mechanical properties at elevated temperature. It is ideal for stainless steel applications on pressure vessels (e.g. for components requiring cladding restoration) and other thick plate applications requiring multiple passes (e.g. at pipe mills performing longitudinal welds).
