Lincoln Electric’s new Green Initiative Awareness Program promotes the company’s initiatives to reduce environmental impact of its products and manufacturing processes. The continued investment in technological advancement for its welding products has resulted in lower environmental impacts for its customers and underlines its commitment to creating products that help customers reduce welding costs and adhere to environmental standards.
To help customers easily identify the products connected to these initiatives, Lincoln Electric is labeling them with a new “Green Initiative” logo that clearly states the product’s green advantage.
Lincoln has initially focused its efforts on two equipment initiatives:
- Inverter Technology - Welding equipment featuring inverter technology can save customers more than 10 percent on total energy consumption related to welding over traditional transformer-based power sources.
- EPA’s Tier 4i Engine Emission Compliance - Lincoln and its engine suppliers have met and exceeded U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines two years before it is required on its diesel engine-driven welders.
Lincoln Electric is also continuously working to lessen its environmental impact. ISO 14001 certified since 2004, Lincoln is utilizing various methods such as Six Sigma projects to reduce scrap and waste, improve the efficiency of manufacturing processes, enhance recycling programs and remove old or obsolete equipment.
How I Did It: 1948 Willys Restoration
From: Peter Hill of Sutherland Springs, Texas
I purchased a Lincoln SP-175 Plus wire feeder welder (current model Power MIG® 180C) after buying a small farm. It has been an invaluable piece of equipment. I have built hog traps, furniture, BBQ pits, an aluminum storage box, and used it to fix all kinds of stuff around the farm.
My latest project has been a 1948 Willys jeep that was in pretty bad shape. I used my Lincoln 175 for welding up things like holes in the body and dash, as well as beefing up the frame, and building a new windshield frame. It may be hard to believe but from the original front bumper to the custom rear, and everything under the sights on the machine gun, there is a 10 pound roll of .030 MIG welding wire in there.
The machine gun was built from scrap metal, punchings, and oil well parts. I like using my Lincoln MIG welder because whether it is a 1/4-inch thick rectangular tube bumper or a thin body panel I know I can count on it to do a great job. I love the versatility of it and would never have been able to do this project without it.
These project images and descriptions have been published to show how individuals used their ingenuity for their own needs, convenience and enjoyment. Only limited details are available and the projects have NOT been engineered by the Lincoln Electric® Company. Therefore, when you use the ideas for projects of your own, you must develop your own details and plans and the safety and performance of your work is your responsibility.
