Flextec™ 450 Now Includes VRD®
Flextec™ 450
The Flextec™ 450 multi-process welder now includes standard VRD® (Voltage Reduction Device™) capability.
VRD® provides an additional measure of safety, especially when working in an environment with a higher risk of electrical shock such as wet areas and hot, humid, sweaty conditions.  VRD® reduces the open circuit voltage (OCV) at the welding output terminals when not welding.

New Wire for Pressure Vessel Fabrication

UltraCore® SR-12 is a 75 - 80% Argon / balance CO2 gas-shielded flux-cored wire that is an excellent choice for pressure vessel fabrication and other applications requiring post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) of mild steel.
SR-12 features robust mechanical properties and is easy to use for welders of all skill levels.

How I Did It Project: Wild Horse Sculpture  
 
Wild Horse 1 (click to view larger image) Wild Horse 2 (click to view larger image)
 
Submitted by: Mike Kasun
 
This wild horse sculpture was created by Mike for one of his clients in Colorado.  It is made from a mixture of mild steel and stainless steel and stands 5 feet tall.  The stone weighs 500 lbs.
 
Mike used a Lincoln Electric POWER MIG® 180 Dual wire feeder welder on the project.  He reports that "the welder was amazing!"
 
In additional to its normal use, Mike also utilized the welder to do the stitching effect on the horse, giving it a more sophisticated look (click on the close-up image of the horse's head to see the detail).
 
The above 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.
