ESAB Debuts its First Battery-Powered Welding Machine
Developed in conjunction with Stanley Black & Decker and powered by four DEWALT® FLEXVOLT® 12 Ah (amp-hour) batteries, the Renegade VOLT marks a crossroads for the welding industry, as ESAB establishes a new product category. For the first-time welders have a battery-powered welding machine which operates on interchangeable, rechargeable power tool batteries. The VOLT is a highly portable option for off-the-grid welding across key industries like maintenance and repair, construction, shipyard, rail, power generation, offshore and farm/agriculture. The product will be available for purchase in Q1 2023.
"ESAB has continuously brought new ideas to the market since the invention of the first coated welding electrode more than a century ago. With the Renegade VOLT, we have taken the idea of portability and supercharged it,” said Olivier Biebuyck, President, EMEA and Global Products, ESAB Corporation. “Up until now, welding jobs have only gone as far as the equipment could reach. Welders were stuck lugging around heavy leads, tripping over cables, and wondering what kind of power would be at the job site. Sometimes welders even spent more time on job set up and breakdown than welding. Today, ESAB eliminated those constraints and ushered in a new age. This is the age of true welding freedom. No cords and heavy leads, no time-consuming setup, no engines, or fuel."
The VOLT launch capped off a string of new and re-imagined solutions from ESAB which were unveiled during SparkWeek.
