Lincoln Electric’s (Cleveland, OH) all-new Ranger® Air 260MPX™ multi-function engine drive was designed specifically for the work truck industry, where the unexpected can be expected on any given day. This high-performance, versatile machine is designed to prepare operators for whatever unpredictable circumstances and job demands come their way. 

The Ranger Air 260MPX is many things: an air compressor, generator, battery charger, battery jump assist and multi-process welder all in one. Compared to other machines in its class, the Ranger Air 260MPX engine drive delivers industry-leading performance across the board, in air compressor capabilities, clean auxiliary power and welding arc performance: 

  • The Vanair® compressor delivers 40 cfm at 150 psi. With up to 30% more air than other machines in its class, operators are able to inflate tires faster and power anything up to a 1” impact wrench. The compressor is backed by Vanair’s lifetime warranty and a half-century of engineering expertise in mobile compressors.
  • The 26.5-hp Kohler® Electronic Throttle Body Engine delivers 10 kW of continuous AC generator power to accommodate a variety of tools and equipment. And with less than 5% total harmonic distortion, it can even power sensitive electronics, like laptops.  
  • Lincoln Electric’s field-proven welding arc control technology is built directly into the Ranger Air 260MPX to help deliver a stable reliable arc. These include Ready.Set.Weld® technology and ArcFX® technology.

Deltaweld® Systems now Available with Insight Centerpoint™ Solutions 

Miller Electric Mfg. LLC’s (Appleton, WI) Deltaweld Systems are now available with the Insight Centerpoint weld information application. “New Deltaweld Systems utilizing Insight Centerpoint can provide manufacturers with utilization information and address their most critical challenges — everything from weld quality and productivity to rising costs or a lack of skilled welders,” said Todd McEllis, product manager at Miller.  

Deltaweld 350 and Deltaweld 500 power sources with the Insight Centerpoint application can help solve these manufacturing challenges: 

  • Productivity issues. Insight Centerpoint measures each welder’s arc-on time, allowing operations to establish a productivity baseline, make plans for improvements and measure progress toward goals.
  • Lack of skilled welders. A complex weld sequence can require a lot of training time. If welders are training, they aren’t welding. Insight Centerpoint reduces training by guiding welders through the weld sequence in real time.
  • Poor quality. Out-of-parameter welds create rework if not captured early in the weld cell. Insight Centerpoint provides early containment of defects and can control the weld operation by monitoring every parameter of every weld.
  • Rising costs. Missed or defective welds that aren’t detected early cost more to fix. Insight Centerpoint alerts welders if a weld is missed or is outside of acceptable parameters, allowing it to be corrected cost effectively.

Two Insight Centerpoint modes are available on Deltaweld Systems with Intellx™ Elite wire feeders: basic mode and premium mode.
