Esab Welding and Cutting Products introduced the Warrior -- multi-process power source and feeder—at Fabtech, which opens today at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Delivering up to 500 amps at a 60 percent duty cycle, the machine was designed for construction, general fabrication, pipe welding and repair work.

“Our customers told us they needed a rugged, workhorse of a machine that could withstand harsh welding environments,” said Greg Stauffer, vice president for sales support and standard equipment with Esab North America. “Warrior gives them superior welds time after time -- you have the reliability and efficiency of inverter technology.”

The portable unit has all-front-panel controls with protected knobs and extra-strong panels.
