Robust Feed AVS Wire Feeding Performance

The RobustFeed AVS accepts 8- and 12-in. diameter wire spools. It feeds solid wires as large as 5/64 inches, cored wires up to 3/32 inches, and has a wire feed speed range of 1.3 to 25 meters per minute. It has a duty cycle rating of 100% at 350 amps, the best in its class. Whereas other portable feeders only have 2-wheel drive, the RobustFeed AVS uses a 4-wheel drive mechanism and encoder controlled feeding.

Operators use a single control knob and digital meter on the front panel to adjust wire feed speed at the feeder (but must set voltage at the power source). The RobustFeed AVS has two internal LEDs to illuminate the feeder in dark conditions, 2T (standard) or 4T (trigger lock) control, gas purge, wire jog, CC/CV mode switch and an optional internal gas flow meter protected by the rugged case.

Full use of the Robust Feed family accessories, such as wheel kit and strain reliefs, make the ESAB Robust Feed AVS wire feeder the perfect solution for the toughest applications.
