Automotive: Hard Parts Hunting
Both welders weigh just 29 lbs. and deliver up to 200 amps of MIG welding power.
ESAB Welding and Cutting Products introduced their EM 210 MIG/Flux Cored welder and EMP 210 MIG/Stick/TIG welder. These inverter-based power sources are small in size but deliver professional-grade power and performance for most auto/truck repair and restoration, light fabrication and construction and HVAC work. These units feature state-of-the-art digital controls typically found on industrial machines and use power management technology that delivers positive arc starts and a smooth, steady welding arc.
“EM 210 and EMP 210 welders have the power to weld up to 3/8 in. metal and the finesse for precision welds on thin sections,” says Jay Misas, a product development manager with ESAB. “Their lightweight portability and dual-voltage input power flexibility makes them easy to move around the shop, job site or home garage.”
Both welders weigh just 29 lbs. and deliver up to 200 amps of MIG welding power. With the EMP 210, users also get excellent Lift TIG and Stick welding performance. They both use 115/230V primary power and can run off a generator with a 10 kVA output. The technology built into the EM 210 and EMP 210 systems allow welders to gain more control over the weld puddle to produce higher-quality work for welding steel, stainless or MIG aluminum.
The EM 210 MIG/flux cored welding system has a 30 – 200A output and welds material from 22 gauge up to 3/8-inch in a single pass. The unit accepts 4 and 8 in. diameter wire spools. The EMP 210 multi-process MIG/Flux Cored/Stick/Lift TIG welding system has a 10 – 200A output, a stable Lift TIG arc at low amperage for finesse welds and the power to run Stick electrodes up to 5/32 inches.
The units offer easy-to-read LED digital displays that enable fast, easy and more accurate operation. Controls include MIG wire run-in, burn-back, variable inductance, 2T/4T trigger control and gas pre- and post-flow. The EMP 210 adds Lift TIG arc starts, Stick hot start and Stick arc force control.
These units also come with a generous and premium Tweco and ESAB accessory package. EM 210 comes with a Tweco Fusion 180 Velocity MIG gun with Tweco connection and Velocity consumables, ground clamp, Argon/CO2 Regulator, Power Adaptor and a sample of ESAB’s OK Aristorod 12.50 premium 70S-6 solid wire in 0.030 in. diameter.
The EMP 210 comes with all of the above, plus a Tweco 17V TIG torch with 50mm Dinse and accessory kit, and electrode holder. Both machines are spool gun-ready for MIG aluminum, and the EMP 210 has an optional remote foot control for TIG welding.
“With an EM or EMP package, you’re ready to weld the next project that comes through your door, as well as ready to go out the door for field fabrication and repair work,” says Misas.
