ESAB invites all KOH participants to its main tent in Hammertown, where they can use the innovative Rebel™ EMP 205ic AC/DC multi-process welder. Rebel EMP 205ic AC/DC enables users to TIG weld with AC and DC outputs, MIG weld with solid wires (steel, stainless or aluminum), Flux-Cored weld with gas-shielded and self-shielded wires and Stick weld.

“For professional fabricators or tradesmen who want to weld all metals with all processes and use only a single unit, the ultimate welder has always been a multi-process CC/CV power source with an AC/DC TIG output,” says Doug Smith, Product Business Manager – Arc Equipment, ESAB. “We have delivered that innovation with Rebel EMP 205ic AC/DC, which leverages our unique Rebel platform.”

Also available for use will be the Victor® EDGE 2.0 Journeyman oxy-fuel cutting outfit and the Thermal Dynamics® Cutmaster® 60i manual plasma cutter, which weighs 37 lbs. and provides a rated output of 60 amps (7.6 kW of cutting power) at 50 percent duty cycle, the industry's highest power-to-weight ratio. The Cutmaster automatically connects with primary power from 208 – 480V; the wide voltage range means that Cutmaster 60i works great in locations with dirty power and off generator power.
