The company’s portfolio of welding related products also comprises a wide range of inverter welders, accessories, electrodes, welding wire and personal protection equipment (PPE). “To enhance our services to the metal manufacturing industry, we have ex- tended our range to include Jasic welding equipment and tools. Jasic is a leading international developer, manufacturer and supplier ofwelding inverters and integrated welding solutions that represent value, reliability, durability and innovation,” con- tinues Johns. The Jasic welding equipment range comprises welding inverters for manual metal arc (MMA), tungsten inert gas (TIG) andmetal inert/active gas (MIG/MAG) weld- ing. These include MMA welders from 140 to 630 A; dc TIG inverters of 180 A to 400 A, including pulse units with water cooling; ac/dc TIG units from 200 to 500 A water cooledpulse units; MIG/MAG inverters 160 A to 500 A dual pulse water cooled units. Jasic plasma cutters – from 45-160 A hand-held units all the way through to units with complete CNC capabilities – are also available. BMG specialists work closely with every customer to ensure selection of the correct equipment and the appropriate and safe to-use interfacewith a large, precise digital display that canbe easily read fromup to 25 m away. “The optional remote control on the Rogue PRO allows the welder to adjust current settingswithout needing to goback to the machine and, no matter where it is welding or what is being welded, Rogue simply welds well,” Bronkhorst assures.

Service and support “Rogue, like every ESABmachine, is backed by our commitment to superior customer service and support. Our skilled customer service department is prepared to answer any questions, address problems and help with maintenance and upgrading of ma- chines,” Bronkhorst assures, adding that BMG specialists also encourage busi- nesses tobemindful of the hazards of weld- ing fumes andhow important it is toprotect workers’ health through the extraction and control of welding fumes. Toxic welding fumes can contain amixture ofmanganese, chromiumVI, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and ozone, which can cause serious short and long-term health problems. For this reason, it is critical that PPE andworkplace safety equipment is suitable for everyweld- ing and cutting application. All Jasic products are subjected to rigor- use of each system. Factors for careful consideration include choosing the correct welding process and equipment based on thematerials tobeweldedand thematerial thickness. Themost commonlyweldedma- terials are aluminium, mild steel, stainless steel and other alloys.
