The Vantage 520 SD welder

The Vantage 520 SD features a Deutz 34.8 horsepower D2.9L4 Tier 4 Final (T4F) compliant engine that enables the welder to produce 520 amps/30 volts at 60 per cent duty cycle and 450 amps/32 volts at 100 per cent duty cycle. The 520 SD is capable of delivering to 11,000 watts single-phase or 17,000 watts three-phase, 120/240 volt AC generator power. The Vantage 520 SD is engineered to handle a variety of processes, including: stick welding, TIG welding, MIG welding, pipe welding, flux-cored wire welding, and arc gouging. The Vantage SD series welders share a new digital platform resulting in smoother arc action, faster arc response and improved pipe welding capabilities, including reduced spatter. New pulsing capabilities provide improved arc control for out-of-position work and can be used to reduce heat input, resulting in less distortion of the base material. With access to the Power Feed 25M, welding teams can take advantage of user memory presets for common repeated welding application procedures, as well as operator limits and lockouts to help eliminate operator error on critical welds. www.lincolnelectric.com.
