EX360 FieldPro Multi-process Welder

ArcReach® technology is an investment that results in a lot of time saved during welding operations.  With most welding equipment the operator needs to walk back and forth to adjust output voltage – sometimes over hundreds of feet – multiple times during a job. This results in hundreds of wasted hours and thousands of lost dollars over the course of a large project.

ArcReach technology enables welders to adjust the voltage settings right at the point of welding

ArcReach technology enables welders to adjust the voltage settings right at the point of welding instead of walking all the way to the power source and back.  Even worse, if the voltage settings are “just good enough”, the operator might not bother making the trip, resulting in lower quality welds.

How Does Arc Reach Work?

With ArcReach®, the digital signal carries voltage information via the weld cables. The connection happens automatically.   The ArcReach software in the power source receives the signals it receives from the remote accessory or wire feeder and adjusts the output as indicated by the operator.

New Red-D-Arc Welders With ArcReach®

Red-D-Arc is pleased to announce the launch of our own line of equipment enabled with ArcReach®technology.  The EX360 Fieldpro is an excellent machine for welding pipe in the field, working in shipyards or working across large distances and heights in the construction industry. Our D624K HO Diesel Engine Welder features infinite arc control which enables welding arc characteristics to be adapted for specific welding applications using stick welding, MIG and flux-cored welding techniques.

ArcReach Welding Accessories

We also carry the arc reach components needed to complete your ArcReach® enabled welding set up. The ArcReach® Suitcase 12 Wire Feeder is compatible with all ArcReach® enabled products and enables all the welding adjustments to be made at the point of welding.  The portable ArcReach® Stick-TIG Remote automatically changes to Stick mode if electrode positive polarity is detected or TIG mode when if electrode negative polarity is detected eliminating the need to walk back to the power supply.

Welders will benefit with more arc-on time and improved weld quality. Not only that, there won’t be extra control cables cluttering up the worksite, creating a trip hazard.  Faster, better, safer welding. ArcReach® technology is an investment you can’t afford to pass up.

Most people who have been in a technical profession know the constant need for a variety of tools.  One minute you may need a pliers, then a knife, then a file, then a screwdriver, and once the day is all done, a bottle opener.  This is the reason why multi-tools have become so popular; they combine all of these tools into one. In the world of welding, there is something similar to a multi-tool.  It is known as a multi-process welder. Red-D-Arc carries multi-process welders because we know that one minute you might be self-shielded flux core welding some dirty, ½” thick steel and then the next minute be fitting up 18 gauge aluminum that you need to gas tungsten arc weld.
