Leading gases and engineering company BOC has unearthed a new hi-tech welder for the mining industry offering robust construction, ease of operation and excellent results.
BOC is pleased to announce the launch of the Taurus 505, providing the resources and other industries with a highly-reliable tool for professional MIG/MAG standard welding.
Produced by Germany’s largest manufacturer of welding equipment, EWM, and distributed throughout the South Pacific by BOC’s team of welding specialists, the relatively portable and compact machine offer the highest levels of performance at an accessible price.
BOC’s Senior Product Manager for Welding Products in Australia and New Zealand, Richard Fowles, said the Taurus 505 was perfectly tailored for the mining industry but would also suit a range of other heavy industry applications such a production work in steel and vehicle construction.
“With multi-shift operation and solidly-designed stable metal housing ensuring a long service live, this welder is a high-tech workhorse which continues BOC’s proud tradition of welding innovation,’’ Mr Fowles said.
“It is a very versatile and safe machine and the most reliable yet of its kind,’’ he said.
Weighing just 45kg, the inverter welding machine can be equipped with a roll cage making it easily transportable in the field. The Taurus 505 can be carried comfortably by two people, transported in the back of a ute or lifted to difficult worksites by crane.
The Taurus 505 is the first welding machine from the EWM stable with the ability to drive a voltage sensing wire feeder. It is also fitted with a voltage reduction device (VRD) that is compliant to AS 1674.2-2007 for Category C environments.
A modular welder which can be water or gas cooled, it is suitable for MIG/MAG, MMA and air arc gouging.
100% tested and free welded, the machine offers very high power reserves allowing the use of long intermediate hose packages for use on conventional EWM constant voltage wire feeders.
