This single-torch external welding system offers consistent welding parameter and quality control, and provides the user with 32 programmable welding passes. In addition, this welding machine offers Tip-to-Work Tracking to maintain consistent work distance around the circumference of a weld.
Part of CRC-Evans' Standard Welding System, the P-260 is a self-contained platform incorporating a travel carriage, wire feed motor and wire spool, computer control box, and adjustable welding head. Suitable for GMAW or Pulsed-GMAW processes, this versatile design easily interfaces with most constant-voltage or pulsed-current welding power sources, including the new inverters. The P-260 has the ability to perform external root pass welding in addition to standard hot, fill, and cap pass welding.
The onboard computer ensures precise control of welding parameters: volts, amps, travel speed, oscillation, dwell times, etc. A secure data key prevents unauthorized weld parameter variables from being changed. The removable data key also allows the user to store a real-time log of all essential weld data for further processing in a user-friendly Excel spreadsheet format.
