ESAB TO EXHIBIT AT MACH 2018 Stand H17-580, MACH 2018, NEC, Birmingham, 9-13 April 2018
February 28, 2018
ESAB will be on stand H17-580 at MACH 2018, which will take place in NEC, Birmingham on 9 to 13 April 2018.
COMBIREX DX AND m3 PLASMA SYSTEM
ESAB will be displaying the Combirex DX with m3 Plasma system. The Combirex DX offers large gantry design and performance in a compact package. The rugged gantry features all-steel construction with machined mating surfaces for stiffness and accuracy. Heavy duty weldments support triple machined T-rails to provide a sturdy, stable foundation. Featuring a precision linear rail Y-axis guiding system, precision three-axis rack-and-pinion drives, digital AC drives and AC brushless motors, this machine delivers the cutting performance you would expect from much more expensive gantries. The Combirex DX can be equipped with air plasma systems up 120 amps or ESAB's iSeries Plasma System, which allows the machine to cut and mark with the same plasma torch. Being displayed with the Combirex DX is the m3 Plasma which combines plasma cutting and marking capabilities in a fully integrated, easy-to-use system that delivers high precision and high productivity. The m3 Plasma system performs high-speed plasma cutting, high precision cutting, plasma marking, thick-plate cutting, dry (multi-gas) cutting, and water injection cutting on a wide variety of materials. Featuring the most advanced gas control system in the industry, m3 Plasma is fully automated by ESAB's Vision CNC. To produce the best cut quality, simply select the material type and thickness, and the Vision CNC automatically sets the start, cut and shield gas pressures and flow rates.
The Rebel family will be on show including the new 3 phase Rebel EMP 255ic and 320ic. Both machines are compact and lightweight; they combine power with mobility and offer flexibility in any fabrication environment. As with all of the Rebel family they are extremely user-friendly and have a multilingual TFT-panel incorporating spare part lists and weld parameter guides for all processes.
Visitors will also see live demonstrations of the Rebel 215ic and the Rebel 235ic. The Rebel 235ic offers multi-process functionality, including MIG/MAG, TIG and MMA. Weighing only 24 kg and with a 235-amp rated output at 40% duty cycle, Rebel 235ic has the best power-to-weight ratio in its category.
Visitors to the ESAB stand will see demonstrations of the Renegade ET 300i for MMA and TIG with high frequency (HF) or Lift TIG arc starts and Renegade ET 300iP, which add control for pulsed TIG welding.
Another highlight on the ESAB stand will be WeldCloud, ESAB's online database that connects multiple welding power supplies to a software platform that manages data and enables analyses to be undertaken and productivity improved. WeldCloud uses 3G, WiFi and Ethernet technologies to collect data from every weld pass performed by connected machines, yet security is assured and the data sits within the company's IT system in order to avoid difficulties with firewalls. If necessary, data can be shared with ESAB for troubleshooting or process optimisation. In addition to these traceability, diagnostic and productivity benefits, data can be transferred from the WeldCloud database to individual welding power sources if, for example, enhanced process parameters need to be rolled out. Production engineers, welding engineers, quality assurance managers and maintenance departments all stand to benefit from the scalable WeldCloud platform. WeldCloud was demonstrated using 'live' welding process data from machines operating at the ESAB stand.
Also on display will be ESAB's Columbus software which makes it easy to program various cutting processes, as well as marking and labeling processes. Intelligent wizards contribute to intuitive operation so you can perform simple and highly complex cuts, labeling and nesting jobs quickly and easily. It is network compatible. The software has been developed using the leading Microsoft .Net standard so you benefit from user-friendly, standardized interfaces that allow quick and easy connection to your company's IT system. Columbus also supports Precision Hole Technology™ with a built-in database that automatically assigns the optimum lead-in, lead-out, and process codes required to achieve bolt-ready holes on mild steel up to 1 inch (25mm) thick.
Also on show is the Cutmaster 60i, a handheld air plasma cutting. The Cutmaster 60i weighs 16.8 kg and provides a rated output of 7.6 kW at 50 percent duty cycle at 60A. It produces a recommended cut of 16 mm, has a maximum sever thickness of 38 mm, and provides the fastest cut speed at any thickness material for its class.
ESAB will also be exhibiting a comprehensive range of MMA electrodes to suit a broad range of industry-specific welding applications and stainless steel wires for MIG and TIG processes.
The Sentinel A50 helmet will be on display. This helmets radical design incorporates ergonomic headgear and maximum adjustability to increase productivity, functionality and usability. The Sentinel A50's high-tech features include an almost infinitely adjustable 5-point headgear, a 100 x 60mm viewing area, an externally activated Grind Button, a colour touch screen control panel and a front-loading convex cover lens that comes in different colour options and changes in 10 seconds.
ESAB will also be launching a new range of F&G helmets; the F20 with a 60 x 110 mm viewing area and F20 Air with a 90 x 110 mm viewing area, both with flip front options, both with a lightweight shell with comfort headgear, both incorporate changeable DIN lenses, an inside viewing visor and both have a respiratory option with ESAB PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) unit. The G30 and G30 Air will also be on display; both have changeable inner and outer lens, a lightweight shell, a large inner grinding visor along with comfort headgear. Both also have respiratory option with ESAB PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) unit.
Along with the G30 and G30 Air ESAB will be exhibiting the G40, G50, G40 Air and G50 Air which are combined welding and grinding helmets The G40 has a passive mineral glass and the G50 has an ADF (Automatic Darkening Filter), with shade levels DIN 9-13, and both with flip-up visors. The helmets are rated B in the impact resistance classification, which means they are approved for grinding. Both also have respiratory option with ESAB PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) unit.
FILLER METAL HUB
A Filler Metal hub will be on the stand promoting ESAB's new Filler Metal Databook, alongside the Databook will be ESAB's new products PURUS and 10.62 Flux, which were both first exhibited at Schweissen & Schneiden. Our Filler Metal experts will also be on hand to answers any questions and offer practical welding tips and advice.
