APPLETON, Wis., Aug. 4, 2008––Hobart Welding Products has introduced the IronMan™ 250, a DC/CV, single-phase, MIG/FCAW power source. The unit runs wire from .023 inch to .045 inch diameter and has a wire feed speed range between 90 and 750 IPM. The IronMan 250 welds 22 gauge (.030 in.) to 1/2 inch thick (amperage range of 30 to 250 amps), making it most appropriate for the auto body repair, light fabrication and farm/ranch markets. For optimized aluminum welding, add the Olympic 30A spool gun and module.
A key feature of the IronMan 250 is the excellent short arc MIG performance it provides, allowing an easy-to-control arc. “On my last project, I did a lot of vertical down welding,” says Pete Theis, owner of PT Welding & Driveshaft Repair Inc., La Crescent, Minn. “On some machines, the puddle tries to beat you going down hill, but the IronMan really ran well. I was real impressed.”
Other features of the IronMan 250 include:
- A sloped front panel, making controls easy to see and access
- Increased duty cycle (60 percent at 200 amps), which increases productivity through longer weld times
- Low amperage draw (34 amps at 230V), which saves energy
- Infinite wire speed control, which allows precise adjustment of penetration and weld bead shape
- Built-in thermal overload to protect against overheating
The unit comes complete with a built-in wire feeder, running gear, cylinder rack, regulator/flow gauge, MIG gun, cable clamp and extra tips. Hobart backs the IronMan 250 with its 5/3/1 warranty, which covers the transformer for five years, the switches, controls and valves for three years and the torch for one year.
