The Lincoln Electric Co. offers the LF-72 industrial wire feeder for high-production shops. The feeder features the company’s patented die-cast aluminum two-roll Universal Wire Drive System.
The feeder is available in three models: base model, standard-duty bench, and a heavy-duty bench model that can accept up to 60-lbs. spools. The semiautomatic feeder can accommodate 0.023-in. through 1/16-in. GMAW wire diameters and 0.035-in. through 5/64-in. FCAW wire diameters at feed speeds of 50 to 800 IPM.
Standard features include a 400-amp Magnum™ gun, a 10-ft. control cable with Speed Nut connector, and 0.035-in./0.045-in. drive rolls. Other features include a two-step trigger interlock; a calibrated wire feed speed knob, coupled with a tachometer-controlled motor; and a top-mounted storage tray.
The feeder is compatible with many Lincoln industrial power sources.
