ESAB launches Rebel™

ESAB has launched the Rebel EMP 215ic, a 120V-230V, CC/CV welding system that offers true multi-process arc performance, location flexibility, lightweight portability and a ground-breaking operator interface. It provides an industrial quality arc for MIG, flux-cored, Lift TIG and Stick welding, including excellent performance with difficult-to-weld E6010 electrodes.

The Rebel has two operating modes, Basic and Advanced, that make welding easy for beginners or lets those with more experience fine tune parameters. Operators interact with the Rebel using a unique control that combines traditional weld parameter adjustments with the functionality of a smart phone. It accepts 4 and 8-inch diameter wire spools, runs .023- to .035-inch diameter wires and enables users to switch from 230V to 120V primary power simply by connecting the supplied adapter plug.


“The Rebel EMP 215ic is the most incredible go-anywhere, weld-anything machine on the market. Users have to experience this machine to believe just how good it is,” says Doug Smith, Product Business Manager – Arc Equipment, ESAB.

With the Rebel’s sMIG (“smart MIG”) function, users begin MIG welding by setting metal thickness and selecting wire diameter. The Rebel will automatically adapt to steel, stainless, chrome-moly or aluminium filler metal/gas combination and provide a stable MIG arc.
