APEX® 30S Mechanized Controller

K52217-1

Top Features

  • The APEX 30S can be multi-purposed for GMAW/FCAW and GTAW welding
  • Built as part of a digital platform, it is designed for a longer service life as future welding technologies become available.
  • Moving from flat track, plate or other structural beams to an orbital track takes only a simple weld head adjustment
  • A gas solenoid and flow sensor within the controller minimizes clutter and reduces the overall footprint of the configured system

Where To Buy

Accessory Details

The APEX® 30S controller performs superior GMAW / FCAW welding, and with the addition of AutoDrive® 4R220 wire feeder, it can also function beautifully when used for GTAW applications. The need for auxiliary components has been minimized, incorporating a gas solenoid and flow sensor within the controller. This has reduced cable clutter and the overall footprint of the configured system.

The APEX® 30S with HELIX® M Series Weld Heads are not limited to orbital welding, thanks to the precision offered by the control unit. The system is ideal for flat track welding for welding plate or other types of structural beams. By keeping the weld head in a fixed position and rotating the pipe, the system can easily be adapted for welding in a 1G position using the weld head to precisely place and control the arc for high quality welds.

Control System for Mechanized Welding

Manage all your pre-programmed welding needs and make changes on the fly!

For mission critical orbital welding applications, you can trust our APEX® 3 Series Control Systems from Lincoln Electric. Hundreds of clients worldwide already trust our commitment to quality. Our APEX® 3 Series Orbital Welding solution establishes one platform for multiple welding processes –– with quality assurance, extremely precise welding controls for FCAW, GMAW, GTAW and Hot Wire GTAW welding in fixed and out of position applications, and ease of use second to none.

The APEX 30S is the next evolution in our APEX® 3 Series controllers. Although the APEX® 30S controller performs superior GMAW / FCAW welding, with the addition of AutoDrive® 4R220 wire feeder, it can also function beautifully when used for GTAW applications. The need for auxiliary components has been minimized, incorporating a gas solenoid and flow sensor within the controller. This has reduced cable clutter and the overall footprint of the configured system.

The APEX® 30S with HELIX® M Series Weld Heads are not limited to orbital welding, thanks to the precision offered by the control unit. The system is ideal for flat-track welding for welding plate or other types of structural beams. By keeping the weld head in a fixed position and rotating the pipe, the system can easily be adapted for welding in a 1G position using the weld head to precisely place and control the arc for high quality welds.

This can be especially useful in pipe shops where orbital welds are required only on occasion. Keeping an orbital welding system and an experienced operator on-hand is not generally cost effective. With an APEX 3 Series Ready Pak® system and the APEX 30S controller, the HELIX® weld head can be quickly removed from the 1G position and clamped around an orbital track on the pipe to meet the job requirements.
