The latest Origo/Aristo range of CC/CV welding machines from ESAB have been designed to give the high level of flexibility required by market sectors such as energy and civil construction.

‘The original Origo Tig 3000i machines were launched two years ago,’ said Steve Purnell, marketing manager, arc equipment, ESAB UK.

‘The casework has been redesigned so that the water cooler now fits more neatly onto the machine.’ The new Origo and Aristo machines are supplied with ESAB control units that enable different weld types to be produced.

The units also enable many process parameters to be set before welding starts.

This facility also allows the parameters to be changed during welding.

The Origo Tig 3001i is a 300A inverter power source that will produce a safe start and stable arc.

All types of stainless and mild steel can be welded, together with a range of other materials with plate thicknesses of 0.5mm and up.

The TA24 control panel enables the heat input and the weld pool of pulsed TIG welding to be controlled.

It allows the Origo Tig 3001i to carry out MMA welding (handling all electrodes up to 5mm).

The TA23 control panel has a function where the welder only needs to set the plate thickness and the control panel automatically sets the suitable welding parameters.

It also allows the Origo Tig 3001i to carry out MMA welding.

MMA welds are made using ESAB’s Arcplus II with the Origo Tig 3001i.

Arcplus II gives a stable arc together with an even consumption of the welding electrode.

It provides improved weld quality with less need for after-weld treatment.

When working with high-alloyed materials, the ideal partners are the Origo/Aristo Mig 4001i, A24 and Mig 4001iw.

These MIG welding machines are compact 400A power sources with chassis made from galvanised steel, a material that withstands rough treatment.

The power sources themselves are based on inverter IGBT technology.

These machines use a CANbus communications and control system.

This increases operational reliability because it reduces cabling.

ESAB Logicpump (ELP) automatically starts the cooling water pump in the machine when a water-cooled torch is connected.

The ELP eliminates the risk of overheating the welding torch.

When a self-cooled torch is used the pump automatically shuts off, which reduces noise and extends the life of the pump.

The Origo/Aristo Mig 4001i, A24 and Mig 4001iw use the True Arc Voltage system.

When used with an ESAB PSF torch, the correct arc voltage is guaranteed independent of any voltage drop in the welding cables.

A set up with a short connection cable and a 3m gun, or one with a 35m extended working radius, will not affect the arc voltage or the quality of the weld.

When used with the Aristo U8 controller the welder can store up to 255 weld parameters.

The Aristo U8 also allows the welder to use Superpulse.

This welding process has the ability to control the heat input.

Origo Arc 4001i, with either the A22 or A24 control panel, is designed to weld most metals from alloyed and non-alloyed steel, stainless steel and cast iron.

The chassis is made from galvanised steel.

Both machines use a digital communications and control system (CANbus).

The A22 control panel has one knob for setting and adjustment of the welding current in MMA and TIG (Live TIG) including a digital amp meter.

The A24 control panel is a more sophisticated panel for MMA and TIG (Live TIG) and Mig/Mag (CV mode) welding, which also includes a digital amp meter.

Other features on the A24 include adjustable arc force and hot start to optimise welding starts.

As part of ESAB, a world leading supplier of welding and cutting solutions, ESAB Group (UK) Ltd have access to a product research and development programme, the envy of the welding industry.

The brand is synonymous with world leading expertise  and today the company produces consumables and equipment for virtually every welding and cutting process and application.

As a logical step following his invention of the covered welding electrode back in 1904, Oscar Kjellberg founded ESAB. Since then, the company has constantly improved on existing methods and materials. At the same time, ESAB has developed new methods to meet the challenge presented by technological progress.

More than 100 years of continuous research, development and manufacture have made ESAB a world leader in welding, cutting and also an international supplier of products, know-how and services that none can match.

At is UK headquarters, ESAB Group (UK) Ltd have a team of highly experienced and qualified staff who are always available to offer help and advice on all aspects of welding and cutting.
