ESAB is introducing the Aristo Arc 4000i/5000i and Origo Arc 4000i/5000i welding power sources for applications indoors or outdoors where rugged construction and high performance are required. Suitable for production, maintenance and repair tasks, the machines use inverter IGBT technology and CAN-bus control communications to deliver high reliability and consistently superior welding characteristics. While the 4000i models have a 16-400A welding range, the 5000i models have a range of 16-500A.
The power sources can be used for MMA (manual metal arc) welding on most metals, including alloyed and non-alloyed steel, stainless steel and cast iron. Electrodes up to 7mm in diameter can be used with the Aristo Arc 5000i and Origo Arc 5000i, and gouging electrodes up to 10mm diameter can be used with the Aristo Arc 5000i.
Choice of controls
Depending on the application requirements, customers can select either the Origo A2 MMC (man-machine control) or the Aristo A4 MMC. While the Origo A2 has a simple two-knob layout for setting and adjusting welding current and arc force, the more sophisticated Aristo A4 has a single knob for current control, plus soft keys for selecting the electrode type (rutile, basic or cellulose) and making adjustments to the Hot Start and Arc Force. Both MMC panels have a digital A/V display.
Users that may need to operate from more than one electricity supply can opt for the Multi-Voltage Unit that can be supplied as an integral unit with the power source or separately with its own carrying handles. This Multi-Voltage Unit gives users the opportunity to work from six different three-phase supply voltages.
Other accessories for the Aristo Arc 4000i/5000i and Origo Arc 4000i/5000i machines include a trolley, remote controls, cables and a voltage peak reduction unit.
The Aristo Arc 4000i/5000i and Origo Arc 4000i/5000i welding power sources replace, respectively, the Aristo Arc 400/500 A4 and Aristo Arc 400/500 A2 machines.
