Kemppi redefines extreme industrial welding with the X8 MIG Welder

Leading international welding equipment manufacturer, Kemppi, has unveiled its new Kemppi X8 MIG Welder for extreme industrial welding – the ultimate choice for demanding welding. The X8 MIG Welder is a multi-process system for synergic and pulsed MIG/MAG welding, MMA welding, MIG brazing, cladding and gouging. It delivers extreme power and accuracy using the most common electrical network voltages. Developed, designed and made in Finland, the X8 MIG Welder ensures the very best in performance. This intelligent equipment provides users with extremely precise control of the arc, high-duty welding performance up to 600 A, upgradable power sources, digital WPS and native connectivity with WeldEye welding management software so that they can perform, control and manage welding production in a way that was not possible before.

Designed with precision, welding efficiency and quality in mind, the X8 MIG Welder’s welding arc characteristics deliver enhanced performance – particularly on austenitic stainless steels, aluminium and advanced high-strength steels. To improve quality control and eliminate the need for printed WPS, the X8 MIG Welder features an integrated digital WPS (dWPS) function. By connecting the X8 to the WeldEye cloud service, welders can search, view and activate WPS via the Control Pad display and automatically use the right parameters during welding.

Fast and accurate, the digital WPS function ensures quality control, and helps saves time and money during welding production. The X8 MIG Welder also features a sophisticated Control Pad. In addition to allowing the welder to access and view digital WPS, the Control Pad also lets welders set and adjust parameters to control welding. The device can also be used to collect fabrication information to verify that the weld meets WPSs and analyse welding productivity based on arc time and tracking. Ergonomically designed, the welding gun of the X8 MIG Welder has been shaped for maximum comfort. The hand grip, mobility and stability of the gun have been optimised to meet the most demanding welding tasks. Plus, the innovatively designed wire feeder ensures safe and ergonomic loading of the filler wire spool.

Easy to set up and configure when compared to standard welding equipment, the X8 MIG Welder is ideal for use in a range of industrial applications including on oil rigs, process pipelines, and pressure vessels and boilers.

‘Smart, powerful and robust, the X8 MIG Welder adapts easily to any welding environment and meets even the most extreme expectations of industrial welding,’ said David Green, Managing Director, Kemppi Australia.
