  • Lil Runner - Steelmax -Tools Li’l Runner Portable Fillet Welding Carriage
    Increase your production and reduce your welding costs with the Li’l Runner Automatic Fillet Welding Carriage. By providing constant, non-stop travel at a regulated speed, Li’l Runner produces consistent high-quality welds in a fraction of the time required by hand welding. The regulated travel speed creates weld bead geometry which is exact to your specifications, reducing costly over welding and decreasing filler metal usage by as much as 60%. Li’l Runner will produce quality welds faster and with less cost than hand welding. At just over 17 lbs (8 Kg), this compact, portable tractor can be carried anywhere. The Li'l Runner Welding Carriage is available in three unique versions: (i) the standard version (up to 40 IPM); (ii) the high speed version (up to 86 IPM) which can be used for cutting and welding applications; and (iii) the dual power version (battery powered with a line power adapter).  The Li'l Runner family of carriages offer a broad range of capabilities in one of the smallest fillet welders on the market today. FEATURES
    • Compact, lightweight design with durable cast aluminum housing
    • Positive magnetic traction permits out of position use
    • Magnetic adhesion on/off lever permits easy set up and adjustment on work piece
    • Maintenance-free, 4-wheel planetary gear drive system
    • Digital LED display for presetting of travel speed
    • Rapid clamp torch holder mechanism for different types of MIG/MAG torches
    • Precise cross-slide torch adjustment
    • Integrated automatic arc initiation
    • Self-guiding roller arms eliminate the need for track
    PRIMARY BENEFITS
    • Increased arc time – no starts and stops
    • Reduce wasted filler metal – eliminates over welding
    • Consistent heat input reduces distortion
    • Precise travel speed and torch angle reduces weld defects and costly rework
    • Improves work environment – reduces fatigue and repetitive stress – removes operator from heat and fumes
  • Arc Runner - Steelmax - Tools programmable welding carriage
    The Steelmax® Arc Runner is a portable, programmable welding carriage designed to produce consistent, high-quality welds. The powerful magnetic base and closed loop electronic speed control provide speed stabilization in all positions. The unit enables weld bead geometry that is exact to the required specifications, substantially reducing costly over welding and decreasing filler metal usage. The Arc Runner can be programmed in continuous or stitch welding modes. Two easy-to-use function buttons enable programming of weld length, distance between welds, reverse fill, crater fill time and other required patterns and parameters. The Arc Runner travels at full speed between stitches, which saves valuable welding time. An optional pendulum torch oscillator is available for the Arc Runner to produce weave welds. The oscillator allows for precise control of weave width, weave speed and left/right side wall dwell. Arc Runner’s micro processor allows for development, storage and reproduction of up to 40 different welding programs for various joint configurations and multi-pass, multi-layer welds. Once an optimum weld procedure is developed, stored and programmed, Arc Runner will repeat it over and over again. FEATURES
