CRC-Evans has released a new welding system, M-400, for improved welding applications, the company announced.


The M-400 welding system is CRC-Evans’ lightweight, multi-process, multi-power-source, on-board wire feed, single-torch welding system. The M-400 bug retains all the range and functionality of its predecessor while reducing overall weight by 25 per cent.


In addition to multifunctionality and decreased weight, the M-400’s new offset oscillator offers operators an unprecedented view of the arc as well as adding the ability to deposit automated fillet (+45 /-30°) welds. Lastly, CRC-Evans engineers have built software tracking into the welding parameters, allowing operators to recall exactly what versions of software were being used for each weld. The welding system’s centre-torch design and new ambidextrous carriage eliminates the need for a clockwise and counterclockwise machine.


The M-400 system is multi-process, digital, and analog welding power-supply-capable. It can be adapted to weld flux core, inner-shield, STT, and GMAW with minimal mechanical changes to the bug. Complementing its ability for multi-process welding, the M-400 allows the flexibility of utilizing digital or analog welding power sources.


The welding system offers CRC-Evans' thru-the-arc tracking as an option. This advanced technology maintains the arc in the centre of the weld seam and the optimum tip-to-work distance, ensuring consistent high-quality welds with minimum effort.


The revolutionary redesigned Pendant includes a large-format color display. The Pendant not only operates the M-400 system, but its display relays multiple levels of information and allows the adjustment of parameters without the need to plug in a laptop or PDA.
