Lincoln Electric® has introduced its new Flextec® 500X multi-process welder.

The new multi-process welder is rugged enough for heavy-duty indoor and outdoor applications. The Flextec® 500X is easy to set up and operate, and supports multiple welding processes including GMAW, GTAW, SMAW, FCAW and CAC-A.

The Flextec welders can be used with nearly all Lincoln Electric wire feeders due to available feeder communication connections.

Basic pulse MIG capability is standard on the Flextec 500X, including weld modes for carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminium and metalcore electrodes – with optimised stick welding for both cellulosic and low hydrogen electrodes.

The new welder is also enabled with Arclink® technology to provide synergic pulse modes.

The Flextec 500X features CrossLinc® Technology providing users with the flexibility to control the machine from hundreds of feet away without a control cable. Eliminating extra cables for simple setup means remote procedure setting at the feeder to improve weld quality, increased arc time with fewer trips to the power source to adjust settings, and improved safety with reduced jobsite clutter.
