Lincoln Electric's Activ8(TM) Semiautomatic Wire Feeder Now Available in One-Pak« Option


Wire feeder offered conveniently packaged with compatible gun

Cleveland – Ideal for shipbuilding, offshore, construction or pipe welding operations, the Activ8™ portable wire feeder from Lincoln Electric is the smallest, lightest wire feeder on the market and is now available in a One-Pak« configuration that includes a Magnum« PRO Curve™ 300 gun. With the One-Pak«, welders can enjoy the convenience of receiving a wire feeder and gun matched for most applications in the shipbuilding, construction or pipeline industries.

The Activ8™ One-Pak« includes the following:
• Activ8™ Wire Feeder with internal contactor, gas solenoid, arc-sensing lead and clip [15 ft (4.5 m)] and a K1500-2 Gun Bushing.
• Magnum« PRO Curve™ 300 Gun with 15 ft (4.5 m) gun cable, 1/16 inch (1.6 mm) liner, and K466-10 Gun Connector Kit.

Key features of the Activ8™ include:
• Designed specifically for 8 in. (200 mm) spools.
• Compatible with any DC CV and/or CC power source.
• Simple controls include front WFS knob and internal-booted Cold Feed and/Gas Purges, Trigger Interlock and CV/CC switches.
• Across-the-arc operation (voltage sensing) uses a sense lead and contactor to enable weld current.
• Standard shielding gas apparatus can be used for FCAW-G and GMAW processes.
• Tough plastic case, molded from high-impact, flame-retardant material, is durable and lightweight enough to withstand repeated drop testing.

The portable wire feeder is capable of feeding self-shielded FCAW or FCAW-G and GMAW (MIG) gas-shielded wires at 50-800 IPM (1.3 – 20.3 m/min). It will handle GMAW wires .023 - .052 in. (0.6 – 1.3 mm) in diameter and FCAW wires of .035 – 5/64 in. (0.9 – 2.0 mm) in diameter. The Activ8™ is rated at 330 amps at 60 percent duty cycle and weighs in at only 27 lbs. (12.2 kg).

At the heart of the Activ8™ wire feeder is the MAXTRAC« Drive System, which features the following:
• Dual gear-driven drive system to ensure positive feeding performance.
• Patented wire drive with tool-less drive roller and wire guide changes for quick spool replacement.
• Tachometer-controlled motor to power drive rolls for smooth, steady feeding without wire slippage.
