Part of CRC-Evans' Standard Welding System, the single-torch P-450 provides higher productivity on projects that don’t have dual-head technology in the budget and applications that were limited to standard welding machines in the past. These include 2G and 5G, diameters less than 16 inches, pipelines less than 50 kilometers, CRA, and other exotic materials.

The P-450 is a fully digital system. Its features include full through-the-arc tracking, which keeps the torch and bead in perfect position to maximize speed and quality in both vertical and horizontal applications. Position-based parameter control is achieved with an onboard inclinometer that signals welder position in real time to ensure that pre-programmed parameters are flawlessly executed. PDA interface allows weld parameters to be programmed offsite and easily downloaded onsite. Performance data can also be uploaded from the P-450 and analyzed offsite.
