Original Press Release:
Lincoln Electric's New Power Wave® 355M
Featuring Lincoln's ArcLink® open communications protocol - a Lincoln Nextweld(TM) Technology CLEVELAND, Ohio - Any fabricator searching for a reliable, technologically advanced, multi-process welding system need look no further than The Lincoln Electric Company's new Power Wave® 355M power source with Power Feed(TM) 10M wire feeder featuring push-pull aluminum MIG capabilities. The Power Wave is capable of Stick, TIG, MIG, Synergic MIG, Pulsed, and Flux-Cored welding as well as arc gouging. And, because manufacturing systems around the world are going digital, the Power Wave 355M features Lincoln's digital communication protocol for welding - ArcLink® - making it the best choice for seamless, time critical integration of the power source and networked equipment. The Power Wave 355M is rated 350 amps, 34 volts at 60% duty cycle. The full amperage range is 5 - 425 amps. It is factory programmed with over 60 standard Waveform Control Technology(TM) welding programs, allowing for selection of the right wave shape for numerous applications. Each program has been optimized for a specific wire type and size to deliver specific arc characteristics for exceptionally smooth performance under a variety of conditions. Tighter control of welding process variables, ease of equipment use with a high degree of process versatility, and improved weld consistency are just a few of the benefits of Waveform Control Technology, a Lincoln Nextweld(TM) innovation. In addition to a full complement of stick, TIG, MIG and pulsed programs, the Power Wave 355M includes a variety of specialty programs offered exclusively by Lincoln Electric. For example, Lincoln's Pulse-on-Pulse(TM) Welding Modes for aluminum improve the cleaning action on aluminum and deliver a TIG-like appearance to the weld bead. Lincoln's Power Mode(TM) maintains a stable, smooth arc for short arc welding on thin materials. In addition, the Power Wave's state-of-the-art inverter technology provides high power efficiency, excellent welding performance and a lightweight, compact design. Rigorous environmental, mechanical and weld testing ensures ruggedness and reliability. When it comes to steel, stainless or even aluminum, the push-pull capability of the Power Feed 10M wire feeder allows for the ultimate in stable, reliable electrode feeding. The Power Feed 10M features a wire feed speed range of 50 - 1200 ipm (1.2 - 30.5 m/min). It is capable of feeding .023 - 3/32" (0.6 - 2.4 mm) solid wire electrode and .035 - 1/8" (0.9 - 3.0 mm) flux-cored electrode. Controls at the wire feeder, rather than at the power source, make it easy to select all welding parameters close to your work. The Power Wave 355M and Power Feed 10M are manufactured under a quality system certified to ISO 9001 requirements and are covered by a three-year warranty on parts and labor. The Lincoln Electric Company, Cleveland, Ohio, is a world leader in the design and manufacture of arc welding equipment and consumables, robotic welding systems, plasma and oxyfuel cutting equipment.
