INDUSTRY LEADING 4-ROLL WIRE DRIVE DESIGN.

The AutoDrive® 4R100 and 4R220 are powerful yet compact 4-roll wire drives for robotic and hard automation applications. Both models feature the MAXTRAC® Wire Drive System. Select the 4R220 for feeding larger diameter wires, pulling wire through long conduits and in applications requiring extra ruggedness.

  • Integrated Design - Designed to “nest” in the upper arm of the FANUC® Robotics ARC Mate® iC family of arms. 
  • Best in Class Torque - Results in faster acceleration and reliably pulls wire through conduit.
  • Welding Results - High resolution tachometer for accurate wire feed speed control.
  • Durable and Rugged - Patented MAXTRAC® heavy-duty cast aluminum wire drive system provides reliable feeding and durability.
  • Ease of Use - Unlike competitive models, no tools are required for drive roll, wire guide or pressure arm adjustment.
  • Optimized Robotic Solution - Compact, light weight package maximizes robot acceleration performance and throughput.
  • Replaceable Brushes - Drive motors in both units feature replaceable brushes to extend service life. Brush life in the AutoDrive® 4R100 is more than 300% longer than the previous AutoDrive® model.

The Power Feed® 10R is a high performance, digitally controlled wire feeder designed to be a part of a modular, multi-process welding system. It is specifically designed to mount to a robot arm or to use in hard automation applications. Modular systems can be arranged in a variety of ways for optimum, customized performance and easy maintenance. This four drive roll feeder operates on 40VDC input power and is designed to be used with ArcLink® Robotic Power Wave® power sources. Close integration of the feeder, power source and existing equipment creates the foundation for a system with superior welding performance and reliability.

  • Digitally controlled by the Power Wave® power source, yielding the best performance in the industry.
  • Use with Lincoln power sources featuring ArcLink®, the leading digital communications protocol for welding, making it the best choice for seamless integration with the power source and networked equipment.
  • Tachometer feedback provides calibration and precise control of wire feed speed.
  • Feeder brakes from maximum speed to zero in milliseconds, minimizing the chance of wire sticking in the puddle.
  • Select standard or high speed gears for wide wire feed speed range.
  • Split wire guides provide trouble-free feeding and offer fast, tool-less wire installation, changeover and maintenance.
  • Easy-to-read gauge for accurate drive roll tension.
  • Brass-to-brass connections for good connectivity between feeder and gun.
  • Modular construction for easy servicing.
  • Self loading wire feature for easy set-up.
