About Hobart

Hobart TIG welders are AC / DC welders that operate at 230 volts and use a non-consumable tungsten electrode to deliver current to the welding arc. They provide a maximum output of 165 amperes and can weld up to 3/16 inches of mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium. Hobart MIG welders are flux-cored wire welders used to perform thin-gauge steel & aluminium welding, and are widely used for arc welding. They have a built-in contactor that cools down the wire. Engine-driven welding generators by Hobart operate on gasoline and are used as auxiliary power sources while welding.

Hobart Competitive Advantages

FabCO XTREME 120 Tubular Wires

FabCO XTREME 120 Tubular Wires

These tubular wires feature fast-freezing slag to offer out-of-position capability with low-hydrogen to decrease the risk of hydrogen-induced cracking. They provide exceptional impact rigidity to resist cracking in extreme applications.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of FabCOR 86R tubular wires?

They provide high deposition rates and efficiency. They have practically no slag coverage and low spatter levels, thus decreasing cleanup time. They feature seamless arc characteristics to enhance operator appeal.

What are Metalloy X-Cel tubular wires?

Metalloy X-Cel tubular wires provide a 'soft arc' for decreased burn-through andenhanced gap bridging. The deposition rates of these wires are 30-40% higher than solid wires, making them ideal for automatic, semi-automatic and robotic welding on clean & mild steel having thicknesses less than or equal to 1/4 inches.
