Space-Saving Dust Collector
for Robotic Welding
Robotic-welding facilities now can meet air-quality regulations without losing too much floor space, thanks to the new RoboVent Spire dust collector from RoboVent, Sterling Heights, MI. Spire was specifically designed to complement the most common robotic-welding applications used in the automotive industry, though it can be applied to other industries as well. Continue Reading
Portable Magnetic Drill with
Automatic Feed and Reverse
CS Unitec has introduced a new model to its MAB line of portable magnetic drills, the AutoMAB 350. The drill features an automatic feed mechanism with automatic reverse and shutoff. Ideal for steel fabricators, contractors and plant-maintenance professionals, the AutoMAB 350 drills holes with annular cutters as large as 1.5-in. dia. Continue Reading
Dual-Workstation Multiaxis Laser System
Prima Power Laserdyne, Champlin, MN, introduces the dual-workstation Laserdyne 606D multiaxis laser-processing system--two completely independent workstations in a single unitized structure. Its main components: a pair of six-axis motion systems, an integral Class 1 enclosure with dual automated doors, two S94P laser-process controls for motion and laser coordination, and two fiber-laser sources. Continue Reading
Laser-Cutting Software Designed to Optimize Startup, Productivity and Quality
OSAI, Chicopee, MA, has introduced the OpenCut CAM hardware/software system to support 2D and 3D laser cutting. Designed to optimize startup, productivity and cutting quality, the system provides numerical controls that perfectly match the most common CAD systems on the market, allowing complete programming.

Expanded Line of Portable Stick/Tig Inverters Features New 120V Model for Aluminum
Esab, Florence, SC, has expanded its line of single-phase stick/tig and AC/DC tig/stick inverters, previously sold under the Thermal Arc and Tweco brands. New is the ET 141i AC/DC, reportedly the first 120-V inverter that provides an AC-tig output for welding aluminum, and high-frequency (HF) non-contact arc starts for AC or D tig welding. Continue Reading
Warning System Makes Blind Intersections
and Corners Safer
Blind corners inside manufacturing facilities and warehouses just became safer with the introduction of the Safe-T-Signal intersection warning system by Rite-Hite, Milwaukee, WI. The ceiling-mounted system alerts workers when traffic is approaching by using LED lights in the shape of red stop signs (octagon) and amber yield (triangle) signs. Continue Reading
Compact Robot for Arc Welding
and Machine Tending
ABB Robotics, Auburn Hills, MI, has introduced the IRB 1660ID compact robot for arc-welding and machine-tending applications. Its integrated DressPack design, with internal cable routing, simplifies programming and decreases cable wear and damage to reduce maintenance costs. Continue Reading
Submerged-Arc-Welding Guide Simplifies
Wire and Flux Selection
Hobart, Troy, OH, has published a new submerged-arc-welding guide that provides specs for 13 of its welding wires and fluxes (eight wires and five fluxes), that together are capable of addressing the challenges of virtually any carbon/non-alloyed-steel welding application. The guide includes detailed information on the company's SubCor seamed and seamless cored (composite) wires; SDX copper-coated solid wires; and SWX, HA and HN agglomerated fluxes. Continue Reading
