ESAB has introduced an adaptorless A-Basket to use with its OK Autrod 12.51 wire

ESAB Group : 14 July, 2005  (New Product)
Leading welding equipment supplier ESAB has introduced an adaptorless A-Basket to use with its OK Autrod 12.51 wire. As it needs no plastic ;INSERTs, the basket can save both change-over time and downtime, while also improving environmental practice by being recyclable and cutting down on waste. It will fit directly on to any wire-feed unit.
Leading welding equipment supplier ESAB has introduced an adaptorless A-Basket to use with its OK Autrod 12.51 wire. As it needs no plastic inserts, the basket can save both change-over time and downtime, while also improving environmental practice by being recyclable and cutting down on waste. It will fit directly on to any wire-feed unit.

Robustly designed and constructed, the basket has proved successful with the company's stainless steel and aluminium wires, so extending its use to non-alloy MIG/MAG wire is a logical development. Carrying a larger load, and having a more rigid side-wall to facilitate wire feed, the basket is a more convenient solution which also increases throughput.

ESAB's OK Autrod 12.51 welding wire is available in 0.8, 1.0 and 1.2mm diameters and is layer-wound on the new basket, with uniform feed properties. Having good arc stability, uniform copper coating and being suitable for robotic welding, this is a double deoxidised manganese silicon alloyed wire for GMAW using Ar/20CO2 or CO2 as the gas shield.

Typical uses include butt and fillet welding of mild and carbon manganese steel materials employed in fabricating boilers, containers, car bodies, ships, railway rolling stock and structural steelwork.
