Koike Aronson Ransome released the Wel-Handy Multi Next portable welding carriage for semi-automated welding. The machine features a multi-function drive system that allows operators to perform various weld types with one machine. It delivers traction control with a 120-ft.-lb. pull force magnet, ensuring precise and consistent results for vertical and horizontal welding. The welding carriage is constructed with a single-piece aluminum die-cast body protected by aluminum and stainless steel heat shields to resist slag penetration. The multi-function controller allows operators to perform straight line, stitch and weave type welds with the same carriage.
