The new Power Wave® S700 welder from Lincoln Electric delivers flexible configurations and more welding power for welding in high-duty-cycle applications and thick materials.
Recommended for use with 0.0625-in. and higher welding wire diameters, the multiprocess unit can be used in semiautomatic, hard automation, or robotic environments, including synchronized tandem welding applications in transportation, heavy equipment, and other fabrication industries.
It produces up to 900 amps at 44 V at 60 percent duty cycle and 700 amps at 44 V at 100 percent duty cycle. The power source operates at 88 percent efficiency with a 95 percent minimum power factor at rated output. Features include high electric efficiency, True Energy™ instantaneous energy monitoring, and cloud-based CheckPoint™ and Production Monitoring™ weld performance and quality data.
The semimodular design allows for clean connection options to the company's Cool Arc® 55, AutoDrive 19, and AutoDrive 19 tandem modules.
