Lincoln Electric has two new portable fume-extraction systems, the Miniflex and Mobiflex. The Miniflex, weighing 33 pounds, is designed for most common light- and medium-duty arc-welding applications. The system, powered by two 1.34-hp motors, features a four-stage filtration process and starts and stops automatically with the welding process. The Mobiflex system, says Lincoln, adapts to various welding applications, including stick, TIG, MIG and flux-cored. The unit’s extraction arm, available in either a 10- or 13-foot length, allows the extraction outlet to be placed in near proximity to the work area.
