Welding machines optimised for MMA applications

Paul Boughton
Esab is launching the Origo Arc 4001i manual metal arc (MMA) welding machines with a choice of either the A22 or A24 control panels.

These 400A power sources have been optimised for MMA applications, whether the requirement is for fabrication, on-site installation, repair or maintenance, both indoors and outdoors.

The machines are designed for a long, trouble-free service life even in harsh operating conditions. For example, there is a rugged galvanised steel chassis, IGBT inverter technology, a CAN bus to minimise internal wiring, and a dust filter.

A further advantage of the IGBT inverter is that it helps to deliver outstanding welding characteristics, plus it enables the power source to be used for TIG welding.

Customers can choose between the A22 control panel - which features a simple knob for setting and adjusting the welding current, and a digital ammeter for displaying the current - and the more sophisticated A24 control panel. This second panel benefits from a digital V/A meter and can be used for LiveTIG and MIG/MAG (CV mode) welding.

Other functions available with the A24 panel include selection of electrode type, adjustable Arc Force and Hot Start, as well as a memory for storing welding settings.
