Lincoln Electric introduces new CrossLinc Technology-enabled welding equipment.
Lincoln Electric says the new Flextec 350X welder and LN-25X wire feeder use a proprietary communications protocol to transfer operator voltage adjustments at the feeder to the power source hundreds of feet away using a common, copper weld cable. No additional control cable is required. The result is greater safety, quality and productivity for job-site and fab-shop environments, the company says.
Flextec 350X: This multi-process welding power source delivers premium arc performance for all DC wire, stick and TIG processes and gouging up to 3/16 in.(4.8 mm). Engineered for outdoor use and harsh environments, this IP23-rated welder features fully protected components, Lincoln Electric says. It has an output range of 5 to 425 amps, is rated at 300 amps, 32 volts at 100 percent duty cycle or 350 amps, 34 volts at 60 percent duty cycle. Lightweight and portable, the compact new model weighs only 77 lbs. (34.9 kilograms), the company says.
LN-25X: Lincoln Electric says this feeder is designed to be simple, reliable and easy to service when necessary. LN-25 PRO feeders feature a Maxtrac drive system, dual range wire feed speed, encapsulated and protected electronics and a tough, flame-resistant case. It is rated 450 amps at 60 percent duty cycle, with a wire feed speed range of 50-700 in. per minute, the company says. Wire diameters range from .023-1/16 in. (0.6-1.6 millimeters) for GMAW wires and .030-5/64 in. (0.8-2.0 millimeters) for cored wires. Lincoln Electric says the LN-25X can handle 12 in. (305 millimeters) or 8 in. (203 millimeters) spools and weighs less than 37 lbs. (16 kilograms).
