Lincoln Electric Drives Performance with New Flextec® 500X

New multi-process welder delivers reliable and flexible welding for harshest environments

Cleveland – Lincoln Electric® delivers powerful performance with the new Flextec® 500X multi-process welder. Rugged enough for heavy-duty indoor and outdoor applications, it is easy to set up and operate, and supports multiple weld processes including GMAW, GTAW, SMAW, FCAW and CAC-A. The Flextec welders can be used with nearly all Lincoln Electric wire feeders due to available feeder communication connections.

Basic pulse MIG capability is standard on the Flextec 500X, including weld modes for carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum and metalcore electrodes – with optimized stick welding for both cellulosic and low hydrogen electrodes. It’s also enabled with Arclink® technology to provide synergic pulse modes.
Additional features include:

  • Touch-start TIG for easy, contamination-free starts without high frequency
  • IP 23 rating – for outdoor environments such as construction sites and shipyards
  • Desert Duty® rated – operation in the harshest environments (up to 55°C)
  • Durable trayed and potted PC boards for electronics protection

The Flextec 500X boasts CrossLinc® Technology, providing users with the flexibility to control the machine from hundreds of feet away without a control cable. Eliminating extra cables for simple setup means remote procedure setting at the feeder to improve weld quality, increased arc time with fewer trips to the power source to adjust settings, and improved safety with reduced jobsite clutter.
