Joe demonstrates how to set minimum and maximum values when using an external control, such as a foot pedal or remote control. This feature can be useful when working on a specific welding procedure that requires a certain range of amperage. By accessing the setup menu and setting the desired values, the machine will limit the operator to only work within those parameters.

In this video, Joe from voestalpine Böhler Welding introduces Böhler Arc, a fully integrated approach to welding that combines welding consumables, welding machines, and welding processes to achieve optimal results. He provides context by discussing a common application, the welding of a 304 stainless steel base material to an S355 carbon steel base material. The FOXcore 307-MC metal cord wire and Uranos NX 4000 GSM welding machine are used for the demonstration, showcasing both the standard spray arc and the consumable specific synergic curve.

In this video, Joe from voestalpine Böhler Welding introduces the multiprocess machines, GSM and MTE. He highlights that these machines allow for various welding processes, including MIG/MAG, pulsed MIG/MAG, high-frequency DC TIG, and MMA, all from one power source. Joe demonstrates the capabilities of the machines by performing pipe-to-plate welds using DC TIG and flux-cored welding. He emphasizes the ease of switching between processes and concludes that these machines are ideal for those using multiple welding processes in their workshop.

Joe from voestalpine Böhler Welding discusses tips and tricks to improve weld quality on carbon steel fillet welds. He introduces the rapiDeep welding process, a waveform-controlled technique that reduces the arc length, resulting in increased penetration and the ability to enhance other parameters such as voltage and wire feed speed. This allows for higher travel speeds while reducing heat input, benefiting steel fabrication businesses. Joe demonstrates the difference between a standard spray arc process and the rapiDeep process using an S355 carbon steel fillet weld.

Joe from voestalpine Böhler Welding introduces the URANOS 2000 SMC, a versatile single-phase MIG/MAG welding machine. The machine weighs only 12.8 kilograms and requires 5.7 KVA to operate, making it ideal for a variety of industries including general repair, body repair and fabrication. Joe demonstrates the machine's setup using the LCD display and explains its features, including the library of curves for different materials. He also discusses setting functions such as trigger mode, hot starts, crater fill, arc length correction, and inductance. Joe demonstrates various welds, including a T fillet weld and a lap joint, highlighting the machine's capabilities and gap bridging capabilities. He concludes by recommending the URANOS 2000 SMC as a portable, versatile and intuitive choice for welding applications.

Joe introduces the Uranos 1500 TLH, a 150 amp high frequency DC TIG machine. The outstanding feature of this welder is its compact size, weighing only 3.9 kilograms and measuring 260 x 115 x 250. Its portability makes it ideal for maintenance and repair work, as well as on-site fabrication projects. Joe demonstrates the machine's capabilities by welding a 5-millimeter stainless steel plate. The setup process is straightforward with options for MMA functionality and different welding modes such as constant current, pulse or fast pulse. The machine delivers excellent welding performance without compromise. It also comes with a durable hard case for easy storage and transport.

In this video, Joe from voestalpine Böhler Welding introduces the Saber 70 CHP plasma cutter. The Saber 70 is a digitally controlled plasma inverter with a maximum cut of 28 millimeters on carbon steel plate. It is suitable for cutting stainless steel and aluminum plates as well. The machine has a 60 amp 100% duty cycle and is recommended for cutting up to 20 millimeter plates. However, it can cut all the way up to 28 millimeters with a maximum separation of 35 millimeters on carbon steel. Joe demonstrates how to set the machine for different materials and showcases its cutting capabilities on carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. He highlights features such as trigger modes, mesh cutting, plasma gouging, and the ability to adjust power based on material thickness.
