INTRODUCTION
The MEK 4C is an encapsulated wire feed unit with four roller feed. The unit provides space for a 300 mm diameter wire reel and has a built--in positioner.
For a wire feed unit to be complete it must be equipped either with a turnable,
counterbalance device or a carriage. A turnable or counterbalance device allow the
wire feed unit to be mounted on a pivot on the power source. A carriage allows the
wire feed unit to be moved easily over the floor or work table.

OPERATION
General safety regulations for the handling of the equipment can be found on
page 24. Read through before you start using the equipment!
WARNING!
Rotating parts can cause injury, take great care.
WARNING!
To prevent the reel sliding off the hub: Lock the reel in place by turning
the red knob as shown on the warning label attached next to the hub.
Setting the wire feed pressure
Start by making sure that the wire moves smoothly through the wire guide. Then
set the pressure of the wire feeder’s pressure rollers. It is important that the
pressure is not too great.
Fig 1
Fig 2
To check that the feed pressure is set correctly, you can feed out the wire against
an isolated object, e.g. a piece of wood.
When you hold the pistol approx. 5 mm from the piece of wood (fig. 1) the feed
rollers should slip.
If you hold the pistol approx. 50 mm from the piece of wood, the wire should be
feed out and bend (fig. 2). ja sen on taivuttava (kuva 2).
WARNING!
There is a risk of tipping if the wire feed cabinet is fitted with a counterbalance arm. Secure the
equipment, especially if used on an uneven or sloping surface.
Limit the angle of rotation of the wire feed cabinet using the straps supplied.
When moving the equipment, do NOT pull on the torch.
