Metalshield® MC®-90 and MC®-110
Crane
The new Metalshield® MC®-90 and MC®-110, premium low alloy metal-cored wires are designed to produce high strength, high toughness, and H4 diffusible hydrogen weld deposits required in many applications such as heavy equipment and crane fabrication.
These metal-cored wires are ideal for both semi-automatic and robotic applications with best-in-class operator appeal, low spatter, and excellent arc stability. Enhanced silicon island management minimizes slag and eases slag removal.

Power Wave® S500 Advanced Process Welder
 
Power Wave® S500 (click to view larger image) The Power Wave® S-Series advanced process inverter platform has been extended with the S500 model.
 
The compact, multi-process Power Wave® S500 is ideal for welding on thicker materials.  It produces 450 amps at 100% duty cycle and up to 550 amps at 40% duty cycle.
 
Over 65 standard welding waveforms are loaded into the machine for optimized performance on almost any application.
 
Its inverter-based design allows the S500 to efficiently convert input power to reduce operational costs.

Sweet Results From Sour Service
 
Pipeline under construction Materials specification plays a crucial role in the success and integrity of welds on subsea pipelines, especially sour service pipelines (those containing specific amounts of water and hydrogen sulfide), particularly when it comes to selecting welding consumables.
 
Concentrations of hydrogen sulfide, known as sour gas, are becoming increasingly more prevalent in subsea oil and gas transport conditions. Not only is H2S gas almost as deadly as carbon monoxide, but it also can be highly damaging to pipelines if the correct materials are not specified.
 
Learn how seasoned offshore contractor Valentine Maritime (Gulf) LLC partnered with Lincoln Electric to overcome the welding challenges associated with heavy-duty pipe and the sour environment.

How I Did It: Trout Mobile

Charles Buster fabricated this trout mobile as an artwork donation to a silent auction fundraiser for a family in the small town where he lives.
 
He welded washers together to form each fish; 5/8-inch washers on the large fish, 5/16-inch on the middle-sized fish, and 1/4-inch on the smallest fish.  Charles used various colors of spray paint for the finishing touch.
 
Charles welded the washers together using his Lincoln Electric Weld-Pak® 175HD wire feeder welder (current model is Weld-Pak® 180HD) and .025 diameter solid wire and gas.
 
Charles loves his Lincoln Electric welder so much, that when he is teaching creative welding classes for the local arts council, he tells the students, "there are other welders out there for less money but to be sure you have the most reliable welder available, GET A LINCOLN."
 
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.
