CrossLinc Technology allows the new Flextec 650X multiprocess welder to provide full control at the arc without an added control cable, enabling remote control of procedure settings. The Flextec 650X is rated at 650 amps, 44 volts at 100-percent duty cycle and can deliver, says the company, up to 815 amps for heavy-duty applications, or a stable arc at low currents for MIG or TIG welding on thin materials. The unit is capable of large-diameter stick, flux-cored, MIG, or submerged-arc welding on thick materials, and also capable, says the company, of gouging with up to a 1/2-inch carbon. With the addition of ArcLink, Lincoln Electric’s digital communications protocol, the Flextec 650X can be used with an expanded list of wire feeders, compared with the previous 650 model.
