Cleveland – The new high amperage Flextec™ 650 multi-process welder from Lincoln Electric delivers up to 815 amps of welding power.  Its FLEXible TEChnologySM allows welders to use a variety of processes – stick, Touch Start TIG® (DC), MIG, flux-cored CV submerged arc and arc gouging – on numerous applications, including heavy equipment and transportation, construction and welding education.
The inverter-based Flextec™ 650 is rated at 650 amps at 100 percent duty cycle with a robust amperage range of 10-815 amps, while weighing in at only 165 pounds in a case that measures only 21.83 inches high by 16.3 wide x 29.33 deep. Lincoln Electric Ready-Pak® and One-Pak® packages configured with popular Lincoln Electric wire feeders and accessories are structured for easy ordering. Job site-ready rack packages are also set for future release.

Built with quality and reliability in mind, the Flextec™ 650’s features include the following:
  • Flexible multi-process capability for handling the widest range of welding applications
  • Low power consumption resulting in operating cost savings
  • Lighter in weight for enhanced portability
  • Selectable hot start for extra starting amperage
  • Faster arc response with variable arc control
  • Remote control operated by a foot pedal or hand control up to 100 feet away
The Flextec™ 650 is IP23 and Desert Duty™ rated, meaning it can operate in extreme field environments. Welding outputs are rated for extreme temperature operation up to 55° C. Tough PC boards stand up to dust and humidity, while the Fan-As-Needed™ feature reduces power consumption, dirt intake and damaging thermal cycling.
