Green Welding Machine Line Expands

The refreshed and expanded green welding line from Forney is designed with the welding and do-it-yourself (DIY) enthusiast and first-time user in mind.
Forney has also introduced a complete line of nearly 130 new soldering products to round out its full-service product lines for the auto enthusiast, farm and ranch customer, industrial/consumer welder and the do-it-yourselfer.

Clean Air Gun Reduces Weld Fume and Smoke

>Ideal for reducing weld fume and smoke in almost any medium- to heavy-duty solid or flux-cored welding application, the newly redesigned Clean Air Fume Extraction Gun from Bernard is lighter and smaller than many standard fume extraction guns. It uses an easy-to-slide nozzle shroud on the front of the gun that adjusts to one of four fixed positions to optimize weld fume capture, gas flow and weld access. The gun comes in 400 amp, 500 amp and 600 amp models with a 45 deg or 60 deg neck bend to maximize wire feeding. (view one)
Bernard’s redesigned Clean AirFume Extraction Gun has a crush- and snag-resistant vacuum hose that maximizes maneuverability and limits hang-ups on nearby equipment or fixtures.

Multi-Process Welding with Groundbreaking Operator Interface

With the sMIG function on the Rebel from ESAB, users begin MIG welding by setting metal thickness and selecting wire diameter. The unit automatically adapts to any popular steel, stainless, chrome-moly or aluminum filler metal/gas combination and provides a stable MIG arc. With sMIG, users can weld thicker or thinner metal by increasing or decreasing wire feed speed, raise or flatten the bead profile by increasing or decreasing voltage, adjust inductance to fine tune arc stability and control spatter. As users adjust one parameter, sMIG automatically adjusts others to keep the MIG arc stable.
The Rebel EMP 215ic from ESAB has two operating modes, Basic and Advanced, that make welding easy for beginners or lets those with more experience fine tune parameters.

Welding & Fabrication Catalog

The 52-page Welding & Fabrication Catalog from Weiler is available in print and digital versions and contains product information for the new Tiger X flap disc and a full line of welding and fabrication solutions, including coated abrasives, bonded abrasives and brushes.
Weiler's new catalog is available in both print and online versions and features the new Tiger X flap disc.

Fittings for Closed Cooling in Harsh Welding Environments

Liquidline fittings from Eisele Connectors are used in closed cooling systems in harsh welding environments. Manufactured from a solid dezincification-resistant brass alloy for cooling water of pH 5, these fittings are more resistant to corrosion than traditional fittings and can stand up to high temperatures, high flow and aggressive aqueous media. They also feature an innovative protective "release sleeve" to avoid weld spatter build-up.
Liquidline fittings from Eisele include flame-retardant and abrasion-resistant ProWeld hoses made of polyether-polyurethane that can be used for high stress conditions.

Air Flow Amplifiers Extract Dust and Fumes with No Moving Parts

Air Flow Amplifiers from Vortec extract smoke and debris to enhance safety, ergonomics and productivity by taking ordinary compressed air and safely amplifying it up to 60-fold with no moving parts in un-ducted applications. With adjustable airflow and output, they can be tailored to the project at hand. With no electrical requirements, they are easily mounted, ducted and moved wherever there is compressed air, quietly operating to meet OSHA noise requirements.
Vortec Air Flow Amplifiers available in multiple sizes can easily adapt from extraction and ventilation of fumes and gases to blow-off applications, such as drying of parts, cooling of moldings, castings, and food products.

Portable Air Plasma System and Internal Compressor in One

The new Powermax30® AIR from Hypertherm is a portable air plasma system and internal compressor in one that weighs only 30 lb but provides 30 amps of output, giving it the highest power-to-weight ratio of any system in its class. With its built-in compressor and the ability to operate on both 120 volt or 240 volt lines, this highly versatile system enables metal cutting just about anywhere. (first view)
Powermax30 AIR from Hypertherm is rugged and reliable, with certified reliability to perform in the most demanding environments.

Versatile TIG and Stick Welding

The new Dynasty 210 welder from Miller Electric uses Auto-Line power management technology that allows the machine to connect to almost any type of available input power and produce a steady, high quality arc. Operators can work safer and faster in more places, up to 300 ft away from the power source with the hand control, while maintaining consistently high-quality welds. Eliminating cord tangles or failures increases time, saves money, and helps improve overall weld quality at the weld joint.
The new Dynasty 210 and Maxstar 210 welders from Miller Electric deliver up to 210 amps of output power, exceptional TIG and stick performance in easy-to-use, versatile, portable packages that allow for upgrade flexibility.

Multi-Process Welding for Small Shops and Contractors

The new Square Wave TIG 200 welding machine from Lincoln Electric offers a multi-process TIG and stick welding experience for craftsmen, small shop fabricators, makers, motorsports enthusiasts and hobbyists. Users can perform AC TIG welding on aluminum and DC TIG welding on steel, stainless and chrome-moly when precision and bead appearance are important. They can also switch to stick welding when working with thicker materials or welding outdoors.
