BOC will demonstrate its range of affordable inverter welders and plasma cutters on stand 4222 during National Manufacturing Week 2007.

Their stand at the Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Centre, from May 22 to 25, will showcase their series of welders and plasma cutters that bring inverter technology within the price range of even the occasional user. Their technology includes a new generation of MagMATE welding solutions, as well as MMA welders and plasma cutters, under the Smootharc and Smoothcut brands. The MagMATE welding solution and MMA welders and plasma cutters comes in a range of sizes suitable for use in a variety of settings.
