Air tunnel creates a “dirty” side and a separate “clean” side to keep electronics in good condition.
ESAB introduced their new Warrior multi-process power source and feeder at FABTECH in Las Vegas. The Warrior is designed for shipbuilding, rail car construction, mobile machinery construction, energy generation construction, pipe welding, general fabrication, and repair and maintenance.
Developed for GMAW (MIG), FCAW (Flux-Cored), SMAW (Stick), and GTAW (TIG) welding, as well as ACAG (Arc Gouging), Warrior delivers up to 500 amps at 60 per cent duty cycle.
“Our customers told us they needed a rugged, workhorse of a machine that could withstand harsh welding environments,” said Greg Stauffer, Vice President for Sales Support and Standard Equipment (ESAB North America).
Designed with input from welders, Warrior carbon arc gouges with electrodes up to 3/8-inch diameter, welds .030 – 5/64 inch flux-cored and solid wires, and has a full range of SMAW (Stick) capabilities with excellent 7018 and 6010 performance.
The Warrior’s air tunnel design creates a “dirty” air side and a separate “clean” air side to ensure long-term reliability of critical electronics.
The external body has an IP23 rating and is designed to endure harsh outdoor environments. Ergonomically designed handles are built to withstand mechanical hoisting, and double bend 14 gauge steel side panels protect the machine against collisions and drops.
In addition to the Warrior power source, the Warrior Feed 304 is an new rugged, user-friendly wire feeder. It features a high-torque 4-roll drive, which gives superior feed with long GMAW (MIG) guns and better feedability than a 2-roll drive.
The displays are sun-friendly with wide viewing angles, which make it easy to read settings outdoors, and knobs are designed to be used while wearing welding gloves.
