Lincoln Introduces the Industry's Most Cost-Effective Aluminum Welding Solution

Cleveland - For best results when MIG welding aluminum, many experts agree it's worth it to invest in an add-on spool gun. Why? Spool guns reduce the chance of troublesome tangling when feeding soft aluminum wire. Using a spool gun also simplifies changeovers between steel and aluminum welding. However, the dollars add up fast for the welding machine, the spool gun and aluminum welding wire. Now, Lincoln Electric offers a cost-effective alternative for aluminum welding for just under $1,000 - the Power MIG® 140 or 180, Magnum® 100SG spool gun and SuperGlaze® MIG wire.

Now experienced and novice welders can purchase everything they need for aluminum welding applications from Lincoln for $1,000 less than the competitors.

The Power MIG 140 or 180 models offer premium arc control across the entire welding range and provide for enhanced aluminum (and stainless steel) welding with its Diamond Core Technology(TM). Ideal for home, farm, auto body, small-shop maintenance and light-duty fabrication, the Power MIG's rugged cast aluminum drive provides rigid wire alignment for more reliable feeding.

The Magnum 100SG spool gun is the least expensive way to add reliable and precise spool gun wire feeding performance for soft aluminum wire. Weighing only 3.5 lbs., the spool gun comes as a complete kit, including contact tips and nozzles and everything you need to get started. It was designed to work hand-in-hand with Lincoln's Power MIG 140 and 180 models. The 100SG features a manufacturer's suggested list price of $199, a price breakthrough in spool gun technology. The price difference is especially dramatic since no bulky additional outboard module is required. This typically is an added cost of $300-$400.

Lincoln's SuperGlaze aluminum MIG wire with an extremely smooth surface finish, prevents the problems typically associated with aluminum wire feeding, such as birdnesting, tangling and burnback. It provides a stable arc, great feedability and exceptional control - every time.

Combined, Lincoln's Power MIG 140, Magnum 100SG spool gun and SuperGlaze wire offer the industry's most cost-effective aluminum welding solution.
