Swift Arc Transfer™
High-speed robotic MIG-welding

Swift Arc Transfer (SAT) is a high productivity MIG process using OK AristoRod™ non-copper-coated wires with Advanced Surface Characteristics (ASC) at travel speeds well beyond the limits of normal Spray Arc Welding.

OK AristoRod non-copper-coated wires has the advantage over copper-coated wires that it does not quickly contaminate the feed system with copper particles.

Synergic lines are available for three OK AristoRod wire sizes and various shielding gases.

SAT produces flat welds with good penetration and no undercut.

An additional advantage is the low heat input, resulting in less deformation.

SAT is developed for robotic and automated welding and suited for fillet and overlap welds in thin to thick plate in downhand positions.

SAT uses ESAB inverter power sources together with the Aristo RoboFeed 3004HW wire feeder for wire feed speeds up to 1181 ipm (30 m/min) in conjunction with the Aristo® Pendant U82 Plus control unit.

ESAB provides a complete package of equipment, consumables and synergic lines as well as the expertise to successfully implement the Swift Arc Transfer process.

If your application demands efficient root runs or positional welding on thin, or thick aluminium or stainless mateirals, then SuperPulse will provide the optimum solution. With productivity as the objective, today's TIG process is tomorrow's SuperPulse.

Ultimate Welding technology for Robots

ESAB's Aristo U82 robot package is a complete set of welding equipment and consumables, based on ESAB's latest digital power source technology. The package consists of:

  • Aristo Mig 5000iw inverter or Origo Mig 4002c, 5002c or 6502c chopper power source.
  • Aristo Pendant U82 Plus control unit with SAT synergic lines or the Aristo W82 interface for different robot brands.
  • Aristo RoboFeed 3004HW ELP encapsulated wire feeder with up to 30 m/min (1181 ipm) wire feed speed.
  • Cable packages
  • Marathon Pac bulk wire drum with robot quality welding wire and optional bobbin holder.

The robot package can be installed to enable SAT welding on newly built robots, but also for retrofit of existing installations.
