What You Must Know About the Wire Feeder: Unsung Hero of the Welding World

Bob BitzkyESAB Welding & Cutting Products“Shops that work with welding procedures can program the tolerances specified by each procedure, so the welder cannot exceed the specified range. This is very useful in shops where multiple welders might work on the same job. This also simplifies the job of quality assurance.”(Click on photo to enlarge it)
Modern wire feeders remove the guesswork that leads to inconsistent welding results. They can simplify the welder’s job and improve productivity. If it has been some time since you last upgraded your welding equipment, Bob Bitzky of ESAB recommends that you examine these five areas of advancements before purchasing your next wire feeder.

No Turning Back: Pipe Welding System Kicks It Up a Notch

Because RMD provides smooth metal transfer, it can easily bridge gaps of up to 3/16 in., as well as compensate for a high-low misalignment between pipe sections.
Using the PipeworxTM Welding System from Miller Electric, Shinn Mechanical has increased its pipe fabrication quality and productivity with flatter bead profiles, good sidewall tie-in for 30 percent less grinding, and superior weld puddle control – with no wire rejects in over a year.

Reels Quickly Connect to Any Welder

A declutching arbor and non-sparking ratchet assembly prevents damage when reverse winding SWCR Series reels from Hannay.
Power or rewind SWCR Series reels from Hannay Reels are ideal for use with a single conductor electrode cable or grounding lead.

Smooth, Consistent Feeding Spool Gun for Aluminum MIG Welding

The Spoolmatic Pro features a new toolless threaded barrel design for easier barrel changeover or repositioning. The threaded quick-change 360 deg rotatable barrels are available in different bends and lengths to fit numerous applications and welding operator preferences.
The Spoolmatic Pro from Miller Electric is ideal for trailer manufacturing, ship and boat building, and general fabrication.

Arc Welding Reel Improve Arc Welding Operations

Current passes through a 400 amp rated rotary electrical device for efficient use with any unwound cable length.
The SWCR arc welding reel from Hannay Reels uses a heavy-duty spring motor that allows self-contained rewind, while a non-sparking ratchet assembly locks the reel in place when the desired amount of cable has been payed out.
