EMP 215

This cycle we are featuring two of our most popular ESAB multi-process machines, the ESAB REBEL EMP 215ic for welding steel plate up to 3/8 inch and its bigger brother the ESAB REBEL EMP 235ic for welding up to ½ inch steel plate.

The REBEL EMP 215ic will MIG weld (GMAW / FCAW) hard wire and flux core wire with or without gas cover. It will run stick electrodes (SMAW) including the E6010 electrodes. It will TIG weld (GTAW) with the lift arc process. The machine will operate on 120 or 208/230 volts single phase power. The output range when running on 120 volts is 5 to 150 amps and when running on 208 /230 volts it is from 5 to 240 amps. The rated duty cycle when running on 120 volts and stick welding is 40% at 90 amps, when TIG welding it is 40% at 130 amps and when MIG welding it is 20% at 130 amps. The rated duty cycle when running on 208/230 volts stick welding it is 25% at 180 amps, when TIG welding it is 30% at 180 amps and when MIG welding it is 25% at 205 amps. The MIG wire feeder will accommodate 4, 8 and 12 inch spools of wire. It will handle wire sizes on mild steel of. 023 - .035, on stainless steel .030 - .035, aluminum .030 - .045 and flux core wires from .030 - .045. The unique 5 handle roll cage design, light weight (40 lbs.) and dual voltage make the machine very portable and adaptable for on the job site work. The large TFT display system is pre-loaded with on demand user’s manual and a listing of all the spare parts. The unit comes complete with a Tweco 180 10 ft. MIG gun, spare MIG gun parts, Tweco 200 amp electrode holder w/ 13 ft. cable, sample electrodes and a 2 lb. spool of 70S6 .030 wire, Tweco TIG torch and accessories, Tweco ground clamp w/ lead, Victor argon flow gauge regulator w/12 ft. hose and 120 / 240 volt adaptor plugs.

EMP 235

The REBEL EMP 235ic has all the same features of the EMP 215ic including the ability to operate on 120 volts but has higher output ratings and duty cycle ratings. At only 53 lbs. and an output of 235 amps it has one of the best power to weight ratios on the market. The power available when operating on 120 volts is 5 to 150 amps. When operation on 208/230 volts the current range is 5 to 250 amps. The EMP 235ic package includes Tweco Spray master 250 MIG gun w/ 15 ft. cables, Tweco 200 amp electrode holder w/ 13 ft. cable, Tweco ground clamp w/13 ft. lead, Victor argon flow gauge regulator w/ 12 ft. hose, 120 volt adapter, sample pack of 7018 electrodes and an 11 pound spool of wire.
