NCPT Group of Colleges has been given a demonstration by ESAB on welding. ESAB’s Dwayne Gibson demonstrated new state-of-the-art welding machines, as well as processes and developments that are being adopted and pioneered. The demonstration was attended by apprentices and full-time students, after which the students had the opportunity to take part in a practical session with the new machines and equipment.
Robert Evans, fabrication and welding lecturer at NCPT Group of Colleges, stated: “This was an excellent opportunity for students to be involved in trying out the fantastic new Rebel and Renegade welding machines, which are used for precision welding and fabrication.”
Suitable for pipeline welding applications, the Renegade ES 300i MMA (SMAW)/LiveTIG (GTAW) welder is an inverter-based MMA/TIG machine that offers extreme power in a compact format. It weighs 15 kg, measures 460 x 200 x 320 mm and produces a top output of 300 amps at 40% duty cycle. Easy-to-grab front, rear and top handles give the operator maximum flexibility for lifting the machine. Operators can easily pass obstacles, climb stairs, pass through manholes and lift the unit onto racks, making Renegade an optimal welding machine for applications such as, pipe, repair and maintenance and heavy fabrication.
The Rebel EMP 215ic (MIG/TIG/Stick) and EM215iC (MIG only) are go-anywhere, weld-anything machines. The Rebel EMP 215ic, a 120 - 230V, CC/CV welding system, provides a true multi-process arc performance, location flexibility, lightweight portability and an operator interface with LCD/TFT display. A smart MIG (sMIG) function allows users to begin MIG welding – with an extremely stable arc – simply by setting metal thickness and wire diameter. Unlike competitive units, there is no need to enter information for shielding gas mix. Both units can weld dual shielded flux cored wire up to 1.2 mm.
