Lecturer wins ESAB welding machine

ESAB has recently toured the UK to demonstrate several of its welding and cutting systems, including its new Rebel multi-process welding machine. Each person who visited the ESAB’s Demobus could enter a draw to win a Rebel welding machine.

ESAB has announced that the winner of this machine was Carl Matthews of Inverness College UHI, who has been presented with his prize.

The Rebel EMP 215ic is a compact, portable, 120/230V, CC/CV, MIG/MMA/TIG welding system that offers powerful multi-process performance with the added benefit of a full colour display screen. Furthermore, a special sMIG (smart MIG) function enables users to begin MIG welding by setting the material thickness and wire diameter. Unlike competitive units, there is no need to enter information about the shielding gas mix.

Carl Matthews stated: “There was a crowd of people around the Rebel, so I never got a chance to try it, but I could see how well it coped with the MIG torch being moved around all over the place and the sMIG maintaining a good arc.”

“I never win anything, so I was amazed! The Rebel is a fantastic welding machine and I was very pleased to get it home. I have unpacked it, assembled it and thoroughly explored the user interface, but I’ve not had a chance to use it yet. Nevertheless, my brother-in-law and I are thinking of building a trike, I’ve got some other projects in mind for myself, and my family and friends are queuing up with things they want to weld. Although I don’t have much background in welding, I’m confident that the Rebel will enable me to lay down quality welds,” Matthews added.
