Next Generation Solid Wire Bulk Packaging is Ideal for Multi-Robot Stations

The Jumbo Marathon Pac 2 from ESAB features a near-round shape that maximizes packaging strength and minimizes the impact of shipping and handling on wire feedability, and an all-new decoiling system that ensures high productivity by reducing feeding stops for continuous, trouble-free operation.

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products (Florence, SC) introduces Jumbo Marathon Pac™ 2, the next generation in solid wire bulk packaging to the North American market with the Jumbo Marathon Pac 2, a GMAW bulk wire drum system that offers a high-productivity solution for continuous, high-volume welding applications.

ESAB was among the first in the industry to offer welding wire in bulk packaging to improve welding productivity by decreasing the number of interruptions needed to change a new package of wire. Its innovative Marathon Pac was introduced in North America in 1989. The octagonal-shaped Marathon Pac, introduced in 1997, was the first of its kind and the most user– and environmentally-friendly bulk packaging solution for solid wire.

Now the Jumbo Marathon Pac 2 is the next-generation of Marathon Pac, re-engineered to provide a more robust packaging design and to guarantee trouble-free feedability. It features a near-round shape that maximizes packaging strength and minimizes the impact of shipping and handling on wire feedability. An all-new decoiling system ensures high productivity by reducing feeding stops for continuous, trouble-free operation.

Jumbo Marathon Pac 2 increases welding efficiency by carrying more solid wire for a total load capacity of 1100 lb (500 kg). The system will be extended to include a 550 lb (250 kg) drum in the near future. Jumbo Marathon Pac 2 offers the same compact footprint as its predecessor and is fully compatible with all of its accessories, making it an effortless transition for current Marathon Pac users.

The next generation of Marathon Pac remains the most environmentally friendly packaging in the industry. The main drum components are made of cardboard material with no metal parts and are foldable to assure easy disposal and recycling of the package material after use.

Jumbo Marathon Pac 2 is suitable for the most demanding of production environments. It is also available in an “endless” version, which makes it possible to combine the content of a series of Marathon Pacs to form a continuous, in-line supply source, virtually eliminating the need to stop for wire changes. ESAB’s Endless™ Marathon Pac System is ideal for multi-robot stations. www.esabna.com
