FABTECH 2019 highlight

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products previewed the soon-to-be-released Aristo 500ix and Warrior 750i multi-process welding systems in the company’s extensive exhibition area at FABTECH 2019.

The Aristo 500ix (500A output at 60% duty cycle) provides the premium arc performance needed for pulsing applications. The Warrior 750i offers a 750A output at 100% duty cycle for greater productivity with larger diameter electrodes, notably for arc gouging with carbons up to 1/2-in. diameter. Featuring heavy-duty cases and crane-rated lifting points, these systems are designed for heavy industrial applications, such as those found in shipyards, offshore fabrication, construction and mining.

The Aristo 500ix was paired with the new Robust Feed U6 portable feeder to create a rugged, operator-friendly system for enhanced MIG welding. The Robust Feed U6 panel offers pre-programmed synergic lines for MIG welding with aluminum, steel and stainless wires, customizable synergic lines and QSet (sMIG).

The Aristo 500ix is showcased as part of a ready-to-weld package that includes the Robust Feed U6 and water cooler on a cart that provides mobility, protection, lifting points and over-sized cable and gun holders for better organization. The Aristo 500ix uses an “air tunnel” design to isolate critical components and an easy-to-open side panel for field maintenance. It uses 380V to 575V 3ph primary power, and its wide operating range tolerates voltage fluctuations.

The Warrior 750i is ESAB’s most powerful, portable, durable and reliable welding package for harsh environments and high-output industrial applications, such as carbon arc gouging, hardfacing, cladding and mechanized applications. With a 750A output at 100% duty cycle and a 820A output at 60% duty cycle, Warrior 750i offers up to 100A more power than competitive systems. It uses 380V to 575V 3ph primary power.
