Seam Tracker™
Seam Tracker™ image
Arc Products™ tactile seam tracking systems deliver precise automated weld joint tracking for submerged arc and GMAW arc welding processes.
Ideal for repetitive welding applications, these systems are recommended over manual and semiautomatic welding to improve quality and consistency while reducing operational costs.

KEY FEATURES:
- High Deposition Rates
- Flat Bead Appearance
- Wide Operating Range
APPLICATIONS:
- Shipbuilding
- General Fabrication
UltraCore® HD-C and HD-M are mild steel, gas-shielded flux-cored wires designed to provide high deposition rates and flat bead appearance required in many out-of-position applications.  They feature premium arc performance and fast freezing slag.
Select UltraCore® HD-C when using 100% CO2 shielding gas and UltraCore® HD-M when using 75% Argon/25% CO2 shielding gas.

Control Fire Risk in Welding Fume Extraction Systems
 
Guardian™ System (click to view larger image)
 
Lincoln Electric recently introduced Guardian™, a new solution for controlling fire risks in welding fume extraction filter systems.
 
Early detection and suppression are initiated in the event of a fire to minimize the fire hazard, to limit the system damages and to avoid the risk of escalation and accumulation of smoke in metalworking and fabrication environments.
 
Guardian™ products are divided into three categories:
  • Prevent fire
  • Detect fire
  • Suppress fire
Products from each category may be combined to create a system solution.

Rugged Flexibility - Why Today's Inverter Technology Works on Construction Sites
 
Rack application imagePortable. Efficient.
Multi-process. Rugged.
 
These adjectives are just a few of the accurate descriptors for the benefits inverter welders have over traditional transformer-based power sources when it comes to welding in the field. Because inverter-based power sources are smaller both in weight and size than traditional transformer-based or engine-driven units, they can be ideal for use in construction applications, for practical reasons alone.

Investing in the Future Workforce
 
Wallace State image The sluggish economy hasn't put a damper on the need for workers in the skilled trades. Nor has it slowed enrollment in welding education programs, particularly at community colleges. These programs continue to grow and attract students, providing real-world welding training and experience to the next generation of skilled workers – abilities in high demand in the industrial and manufacturing sectors.
 
At Wallace State Community College in Hanceville, Alabama, enrollment in the school's welding education program has doubled since 2007. School officials opted to enlarge the program's facilities to accommodate increased enrollment and to expand its state-of-the art training programs to even better prepare students for welding manufacturing careers.

Magnum® PRO Semiautomatic Welding Gun Offering Recently Expanded
 
Dual Procedure Switch detail (click for larger image) The Magnum® PRO welding gun line has been expanded to add greater flexibility and convenience for fabrication owners and operators.
 
Updates include:
 
Multiple gun cable lengths for all semiautomatic models – 10, 15, 20 and 25 feet.
 
Dual Procedure models - Allow users to easily change welding procedures using an added thumb toggle switch, even while performing a weld, to automatically adjust weld parameters like voltage or wire feed speed without making changes at the wire feeder.
 
Dual Schedule models - Allow users to easily change welding procedures by depressing the gun trigger – half trigger or first position for the first or starting procedure and full trigger or second position for a second procedure.
 
Dual Procedure or Dual Schedule models enhance results when performing a single weld that requires a change from horizontal to vertical position, starting procedures vs. remainder of weld to achieve faster travel speeds or tack procedures vs. continuous weld procedures.

How I Did It: Gates, Home Decoration 
 
Gates image (click to view larger image) Home decoration image (click to view larger image)
 
Mike Beard fabricated the gates in his shop using a Lincoln Electric POWER MIG® 180C wire feeder welder (the dog cut-outs were purchased).  Since only 120V power was available on-site, he used a Lincoln Electric Weld-Pak® 3200HD wire feeder welder and flux-cored self-shielded wire for the installation.
 
Mike also made the decoration above the entry door.  Flat 3/16-inch x 3/4-inch steel was scrolled into form and then he welded the pieces together using the 180C.
 
The above project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
