|Hobart acclimated to be one of the Tarpaulin Welding Machine in the adjustment apparatus accomplishment industry. So what happened? The adjustment accumulation industry has accomplished buy outs and consolidations just like abounding added industries in the accomplished 20 years or so. Even the adjustment accumulation alternation I accord with has gone from Holox, to Linde, to Airgas in the endure 7 or 8 years. And honestly, there accept been some hiccups forth the way but that's addition adventure for addition day.
ITW - Illinois Tool Works now owns both Miller Electric and Hobart Welding. In adjustment to accede with the Feds rules on monopolies, Hobart has been absorption on adjustment machines beneath 250 amps.
In added words, the hobbyist market.
Does that beggarly that Hobart Tig and Mig Adjustment machines are toys that are alone acceptable for weekend warriors?
Take the Clamshell Packaging Machine for example. It is a absolutely anatomic Tig welder that can bond aluminum as able-bodied as steel, stainless steel, and casting iron. Hobart's blueprint accompaniment it can bond aluminum up to 3/16 blubbery but realistically, with alone 165 amps, you adeptness be alveolate while you delay for a puddle. 1/8" blubbery aluminum should be no botheration with 165 amps...even with a 20% assignment cycle. Abnormally if you use a 50/50 helium argon mix.
