Lincoln Electric Introduces Vantage® 520 SD Engine-Driven Welder / Generator
Cleveland – Lincoln Electric introduces the Vantage 520 SD engine-driven welder / generator, which joins the larger Vantage 600 SD and Air Vantage 600 SD to form a Severe Duty group of welders suitable for such extreme environments as mining, construction and pipe welding. Each is equipped with a Tier 4 Final (T4F) compliant engine that meets all new EPA diesel fuel emission standards.
The Vantage 520 SD is engineered to handle a variety of processes, including:
- Stick welding
- TIG welding
- MIG welding
- Pipe welding
- Flux-cored wire welding
- Arc gouging
To deliver improved arc characteristics and other advantages, the Vantage SD series welders share a new digital platform. The results are smoother arc action, faster arc response and improved pipe welding capabilities, including reduced spatter. New pulsing capabilities provide improved arc control for out-of-position work and can be used to reduce heat input, resulting in less distortion of the base material.
ArcLink® digital communication enables fast, reliable digital communication with advanced wire feeders like the Power Feed® 25M portable semiautomatic wire feeder or other components. With access to the Power Feed® 25M, welding teams can take advantage of user memory presets for common repeated welding application procedures, as well as operator limits and lockouts. Both features help eliminate operator error on critical welds.
The Vantage 520 SD features a Deutz® 34.8 horsepower D2.9L4 engine that enables the welder to produce 520 amps/30 volts at 60 percent duty cycle and 450 amps/32 volts at 100 percent duty cycle. In addition, the 520 SD is capable of delivering to 11,000 watts single-phase or 17,000 watts three-phase, 120/240 volt AC generator power.
