SUBMERGED ARC WELDERS
Submerged arc welders for subarc welding from Lincoln Electric provide maximum control over deposition and penetration in single or multi-arc environments. Beam-mounted, portable tractor or semi-automatic systems available for heavy fabrication environments. Input current requirements are reduced with our inverter based system, resulting in significant energy savings.
SUBMERGED ARC WIRE FEEDERS
Submerged arc wire feeders and automatic equipment for subarc welding deposit more weld metal at fast travel speeds. Self propelled tractors are self guiding, easy to operate, and can be quickly moved to the next joint. Ideal applications include shipbuilding, bridge and barge decking, offshore, large tank fabrication, pressure vessels, seamer, pipe mills, and heavy manufacturing.

Due to a January 2017 settlement, Lincoln Electric will be the sole provider of inverter-based SAW equipment for three years in the U.S. market. This settlement prohibits ESAB or its distributors to manufacture, sell or distribute ESAB’s ARISTO® 1000 AC/DC product or any inverter-based SAW equipment in the United States until January 2020.
These settlement terms were set forth in a Consent Judgment and Injunction, which was entered by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas on January 9, 2017. If ESAB violates these provisions, they could be held in contempt of court. The Consent Judgment and Injunction can be viewed
