Newarc has a rich 50-year history of manufacturing welding machines in the UK, here the company supplies distributors within the oil & gas and construction industries as well as general precision engineering. Its products, such as the Viper, have gained an enviable reputation worldwide for high performance and robust built quality. Welding World talks to Head of Sales & Marketing, Ian McLaren.

“Newarc has been working continuously on product development and we are proud to highlight that we now have nine air-cooled welding machines that have 100% duty cycle, and these products form our core range, giving the customer unappareled product performance in air-cooled welding machines,” he says.

In the realm of welding, efficiency and productivity are paramount. The ability to work without interruptions due to equipment cooldown is a game-changer for welders worldwide.

Ian McLaren continues: “Newarc’s 100% duty cycle welding machines have emerged as a frontrunner in this arena, offering unmatched reliability, durability, and uninterrupted power. In this feature, we delve into the world of Newarc’s 100% duty cycle welding machines, exploring their features, benefits, and the impact they have on welders’ lives.”

Newarc’s 100% duty cycle welding machines are engineered with precision and built to last. These machines are meticulously engineered, using high-quality components that can withstand the rigors of continuous operation. With Newarc, welders can rely on their equipment to perform flawlessly, allowing them to focus on their craft without worrying about unexpected breakdowns or downtime. Newarc understands the importance of effective cooling in welding machines, especially during extended periods of operation. The 100% duty cycle machines incorporate advanced cooling systems that efficiently dissipate heat, ensuring optimal performance throughout the welding process. This feature not only extends the lifespan of the machine but also allows welders to work continuously with confidence.

Precision is the cornerstone of exceptional welds, and Newarc’s 100% duty cycle machines excel in this area. These machines provide welders with unparalleled control over the welding parameters, enabling them to achieve precise heat input, arc stability, and weld penetration. The consistent performance of Newarc machines translates into high-quality welds, meeting the most stringent industry standards. Newarc’s 100% duty cycle welding machines cater to a wide range of welding applications. Whether you’re working on heavy structural projects, pipe welding, fabrication, or intricate precision work, Newarc has a machine that fits these demands. With adjustable settings and customisable features, these machines empower welders to tackle diverse projects with ease and confidence.

By eliminating the need for cooldown periods, Newarc’s 100% duty cycle machines boost productivity and efficiency. Welders can work continuously, without interruption, to complete projects in less time. This increased productivity not only allows welders to take on more projects it can also reduce labour costs and accelerate overall project timelines, leading to improved profitability.

While Newarc’s 100% duty cycle machines may involve a higher upfront investment, they offer substantial long-term savings. The durability and reliability of these machines minimises the need for frequent repairs or replacements, reducing maintenance costs. Additionally, the enhanced productivity and efficiency translate into higher output and increased profitability, making the investment worthwhile. Newarc is committed to providing welders with a superior experience.

“Our Viper 250 Amp machine is a compact DC TIG Control unit that operates from the open circuit voltage of any DC power source with an output of 40 – 100 V, petrol or diesel generators, rectifiers, inverters and so on. This unique machine independently controls the welding current of any DC power source without the need for auxiliary or control cables. It can be used with one or two piece torches and provides excellent MMA and TIG welding characteristics and it was the founding member of the 100% duty cycle club.” States Ian McLaren.

He concludes: “Newarc’s 100% duty cycle welding machines have revolutionised the welding industry, empowering welders with uninterrupted power, unmatched reliability, and exceptional control. These machines redefine productivity and efficiency, enabling welders to achieve superior weld quality while reducing project timelines and costs. With Newarc, welders can experience the true potential of uninterrupted welding, realising their ambitions and pushing the boundaries of their craft. Embrace Newarc’s 100% duty cycle welding machines and unlock a world of possibilities in your welding journey.”
