SuitCase 12RC Features
Trigger hold is located on front panel. Jog
and purge are located on inner control panel.
Digital meters with SunVision™ technology
can display voltage or wire speed, and also
amperage if desired. Meters can be seen
clearly even in direct sunlight.
Ultra-low drag inlet guide pins
make loading the wire easy and
does not deform the wire on the way
into the drive rolls. Simply thread
the wire through the pins and into
drive rolls. There are two ways to
advance the wire through the drive
roll and into the gun. Either open
the pressure arm and thread the
wire into the grooves in the drive
roll and on into the gun inlet or
place the wire between the pins and
use the jog switch to advance the
wire through the drive roll.
Scaled wire pressure knob provides
easy adjustment and consistent
pressure on the drive rolls and wire.
Wire drive and motor assembly is
specifically designed for mobile
welding applications to provide
smooth and consistent wire delivery.
Improved motor torque and drive roll
system are designed to feed smalldiameter solid wire (.023 inch) to
large-diameter cored wire (5/64 inch).
Polypropylene case with built-in slide
rails and the ability to open the door to
change wire with feeder in vertical position.
Gun locking tab works with guns having
corresponding locking grooves to prevent gun
from being pulled out if the feeder is dragged by
the gun.
Gas inlet recessed into back of case is
protected from incidental contact by the weld
cable, ensuring consistent and contaminantfree shielding gas delivery to the gun.
Double-filtered gas valve helps keep dirt
from clogging and affecting gas flow.
