Welding Wire Drum

Hobart has introduced the Octagonal Exacto-Pak (X-Pak) drum for its most popular metal-cored wires, including FabCOR Edge XP and FabCOR 86R. The drum is designed to help welding operations improve productivity and increase cost savings. "It uses the same technologies as other Hobart X-Pak drums, providing consistent, straight wire payout that essentially eliminates the risk of wire tangles and wander," said a company spokesperson.

The Octagonal X-Pak is suited for improving productivity in robotic and automatic welding. The drum contains 1,000 lbs. of wire in a footprint of 25" (L) x 25" (W) x 34" (H), reducing the need for frequent changeover associated with smaller welding wire packages.

Hobart also designed the Octagonal X-Pak to reduce waste. The drum is 100% recyclable at any facility that recycles corrugated containerboard.

"Users gain optimal wire feeding performance using 24.5/25-inch octagonal drum hoods or the lid that is supplied with the drum. The Octagonal X-Pak simply requires a direct-pull kit and conduit to be attached prior to welding," said the spokesperson.

Hobart offers a Set Up & Tear Down Guide for the Octagonal X-Pak.
