SEMIAUTOMATIC WIRE FEEDERS
LN-15 Wire Feeder
Portable, Semiautomatic Wire Feeder
The LN-15 is one of the smallest and most maneuverable wire
feeders for the construction, shipbuilding and pipeline industries
available on the market today. Through the use of a high temperature, abrasion resistant plastic case, aluminum alloy roll
cage and fully encapsulated PC boards, the LN-15 is perhaps
the most rugged portable wire feeder in the world.
The LN-15 is available in both Across-The-Arc and Control Cable
versions. Both offer outstanding welding performance, including
pulse welding, on a wide variety of steel, stainless steel, aluminum
and alloy materials.

EASY TO USE
Easy to set-up
Illuminated digital meters for easy readability in dark
conditions or bright sunlight. Large knobs for easy
handling – even with gloved hands.
Easy to adjust
Adjustable flow meter to
set, change and monitor
gas flow.
Internally mounted cold
feed/gas purge switch
saves gas, prevents
electrical shock, and
purges the line.
Easy to weld
Dual schedule Magnum® 400 guns allow for
out-of-position welding by reducing wire feed
speed by 17% for welding overhead.
Easy to monitor
“Hold Last State” feature displays wire feed speed
voltage for five seconds after welding has stopped.
Easy to update
Spindle clamp can be attached or removed
with one hand.
Patented Wire Drive System
• Two gear driven rolls – Each roll has two grooves of the
same size to double feed life. No tools needed to snap
rolls on or off.
Drive rolls flip up
for easy access.
• Revolutionary split wire guide precisely aligns and
supports wire through the entire system. Maximizes
support and minimizes feeding problems.
Entire wire path
is visible for easy
access.
• Two piece split wire guide construction provides easy
access for inspection, cleaning or changing to different
wire sizes.
Removable outer wire
guide for easy access
to wire.
• Gun receiver bushings provide connectivity to Magnum
or competitive guns. Easier interchangeability, better
mechanical support and electrical current transfer.
Heavy Duty Cast Aluminum
Wire Drive System
• Input ball bearing bushings protect wire from damage.

A Closer Look
Control Cable Model (K1871-1)
Across-The-Arc Model (K1870-1)
Connect a Control Cable (K1819-10) and the
electrode welding cable between the power
source and the feeder. Features wire feed speed
and voltage control on the front of the unit.
Operates across the arc with a DC power source
supplying between 15 VDC and 110 VDC. Simply
connect the voltage sense lead to the work, then
connect the LN-15 to the electrode cable.

NOTE:
A constant voltage (CV) power source is recommended for steel flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) and gas metal arc
welding (GMAW) to obtain code quality results. The LN-15 may be used with a constant current (CC) power source for
non critical applications where weld quality and deposition properties are not critical.
