For those who need enhanced multi-process welding capabilities and portability in harsh industrial environments, ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced its Aristo® 500ix inverter-based welding power source and Robust Feed Pulse and Robust Feed U6 wire feed systems. The Aristo 500ix provides outputs for MIG/MAG, flux cored, MMA and TIG welding, offering maximum output of 500A/39V at 60 percent duty cycle and a 100 percent duty cycle rating at 400A/39V. When paired with Robust Feed Pulse or U6, users can weld with solid wire up to 2.0 mm and cored wire up to 2.4 mm. These feeders offer a 50 mm dinse terminal on the back for connecting an MMA electrode holder, while the Robust Feed U6 also enables gouging from the wire feeder.

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products today launched Rogue, its new series of portable and affordable MMA/Lift TIG inverters with professional arc performance and controls such as adjustable hot start and adjustable arc force. These units measure 343 x 153 x 264 mm and feature ESAB’s next-level control technology to produce a smooth welding arc with all types of MMA electrodes. The Lift TIG (DC TIG) function provides positive arc starts without the use of high frequency. All Rogue models deliver a stable TIG arc down to 10 amps, giving welders the control they need to work on thin metal or delicate components.
