The first release in the gases and welding company’s revamped Smootharc welding range, the Smootharc Advance II MIG 555R complies to AS/NZS 60974-1 and IEC/EN 60974-10 and is backed by a three-year conditional warranty.

“The Beast is a true workhorse – the biggest in our Smootharc range. It’s versatile, robust and simple to operate – with an inverter-based power source that offers a high duty cycle for optimal results,” said Tony Newnham, Head of the BOC Welding Business.

“It’s great value for money for its size, with affordable upgrade options from standard gas-cooled welder, to water-cooled for increased productivity and even longer weld times.”

“Designed to withstand the toughest environment conditions, it is housed in a steel case with large wheels making it easy to manoeuvre around the workshop or site.”

BOC said more products are set to be announced this year (2021).

“We look forward to raising the curtain on new Smootharc products in 2021 – and encourage manufacturers to get in touch with our technical welding specialists for advice on the best products and shielding gases to improve productivity and safety,” Newnham said.
