Lincoln Electric’s New Flex Feed® 84 Delivers High Productivity in Heavy Fab Applications
Cleveland – Lincoln Electric®’s latest addition to its industrial wire feeder line, the Flex Feed® 84, boasts a rugged, reliable design to deliver consistent feeding over long conduit runs with large-diameter wires up to 3/32 inches (2.4 mm) or cored wires up to .120 inches (3.2 mm).
This new feeder offers a flexible, modular design, including single-bench, dual-bench and boom-mount configurations that can be converted as workspace requirements change. It’s ideal for use in heavy and general fabrication, construction, structural and heavy equipment applications and includes a built-in interface for hard automation.
Featuring digital meters with preset voltage and wire-feed speed, the Flex Feed 84 displays actual voltage and current during welding and also offers four user memories to save repeated procedures. The system also allows the welding engineer to set passcode-secured limits and lockouts to control welding procedures.
Its patented advanced MaxTrac® wire drive has a rugged, cast-aluminum feed plate that protects the wire and ensures consistent wire feeding. Patented, tool-less drive rolls allow operators to easily change wire size or type, while tool-less, split wire guides ensure uninterrupted feeding and prevent “birdnesting.”
Brass gun adapters provide superior electrical connections, reducing voltage drops and simplifying connections. A user-selectable, wire-retract function pulls the hot wire back into the nozzle after welding to prevent operator injury. Dual models can be equipped with an optional Power Path™ contactor that electrically isolates the non-active wire drive and gun.
