ITW is committed to making environmentally responsible products that offer proven performance. This commitment requires being on the cutting edge of innovation.
To ensure our customers have the most sustainable welding solutions on the market, we are constantly reevaluating our portfolio of products to meet their business needs.
Over the last several years, ITW’s Welding segment has reimagined our welding technology by transitioning from transformer-based to inverter-based designs. This transition has enabled the reduction of the material weight of our products up to 90 percent, and in turn, significantly conserves materials and cuts emissions in manufacturing and delivery. The inverter-based design offers the added environmental benefit of being more energy efficient to operate than previous models, which further reduces the footprint of our suite of welding products.
While we continuously strive to manufacture more sustainable solutions, we are also focused on performance or convenience. Our latest line of welding solutions showcases how we’ve kept user performance and simplicity top of mind as we’ve improved our products and lessened their environmental impacts.
- Our Deltaweld 350- and 500-amp models offer improved ease of use, power, flexibility and energy efficiency thanks to the inclusion of several user-friendly features. Accu-Pulse™ pulsed MIG technology provides a 28 percent wider operating window and a more forgiving arc that translates to reduced spatter. Deltaweld’s EZ-Set technology allows users to set the correct parameters every time based on the thickness of the material being welded on. This improved control helps users of varying skill levels be more precise and reduce unnecessary grinding. The models also provide a reduction in power in use and when idled.
- At just 35 pounds, the CST 282 Stick/TIG Welder offers maximum portability for easy transport around the job site. Its more compact dimensions equate up to a 90 percent reduction in materials used during production, saving both raw materials and emissions. Plus, the unit is more energy efficient than past transformer models, with a 30 percent power factor rating improvement thanks to an auto-sensing primary input power feature.
- The Syncrowave 300/400 is up to 64 percent smaller and 80 percent lighter than previous models. Additionally, the transition to an inverter-based design in the Syncrowave 300/400 means customers can save up to 33 percent of their energy costs compared with older style welding machines.
