How Electronic Fuel Injection Technology Improves Efficiency of Engine-Driven Welding Power Sources

Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) has been used for decades and is standard in many cars, but it’s a technology that’s fairly new to the smaller engines used in gasoline-powered engine-driven welding power sources. Incorporating EFI technology results in reduced emissions and provides numerous other benefits in welding and construction applications, including increased fuel efficiency.
As contractors and welders continually look for ways to reduce welding costs and be more efficient, things as simple as engine choice can make quite a difference.

Field of Dreams

High Tech Welding has gained 25 to 30 percent in productivity in its field repairs since it began using the Multimatic 200 a year ago. The portability and multiprocess capabilities of the unit are at the heart of those benefits.
Take a look at how this Wisconsin fabricator uses the portable all-in-one Multimatic 200 multiprocess power source from Miller Electric to gain versatility and increase their welding productivity by 25 to 30 percent on field repair and fabrication jobs.

Advanced, Spatter-Free Welding in Aluminum and Stainless Steel

To achieve high deposition rates, the Aristo® Mig 4004i Pulse delivers a welding current of 300 A and voltage of 32 V at a 100 percent duty cycle. At a 60 percent duty cycle, these figures rise to 400 A and 36 V. The machine operates from a 380 to 460V (+/-10 percent), three phase supply at 50/60Hz, and can be powered by a generator when there is no mains supply available.
The Aristo® Mig 4004i Pulse power source from ESAB is ideal for manufacturing trucks, buses, trailers, off-highway equipment, trains and railway rolling stock, wind turbine towers, structural steelwork, shipbuilding/offshore, and general industrial fabrication.
