The SLICE® Torch is introduced, setting a new standard for portable and quick cutting solutions for fire and rescue operations.

Small-diameter gas-shielded wire invented.

Alloy Rods, acquired by ESAB, develops a .035″ diameter gas-shielded cored wire for use on jobs previously restricted to solid wires or stick electrodes.

Parts life improved.

Thermal Dynamics introduces hafnium inserts, allowing for longer-lasting oxygen and air cutting consumables.

Oxy-fuel torch safety improved.

Victor develops and integrates patented built-in flashback arrestors into their torches for added operator safety.

1Torch® introduced.

Thermal Dynamics’ dual-mode torch (1Torch) is developed, allowing it to be used on all portable air-cutting systems (contact start or high-voltage start).

EDGE 1.0 introduced.

Victor introduces the first generation of EDGE regulators, featuring the enhanced safety attributes of SLAM technology and an internal particle trap.

High-speed SAW invented.

ESAB develops and introduces high-speed submerged arc welding (SAW) with ICE, allowing for up to 50% higher deposition rates and significant productivity increases.

REBEL introduced.

ESAB develops Rebel, a revolutionary multi-process weld system providing industrial-quality arc performance in a compact design.

EDGE 2.0 introduced.

Victor releases improved EDGE 2.0 regulators, building on the innovations of the original EDGE 1.0 to become the safest regulators in the world.

REBEL 205 introduced.

ESAB develops the world’s first truly all-process portable welding machine with MIG, flux cored, Stick, DC TIG, and AC TIG capabilities.

Digital Solutions introduced.

ESAB officially launches ESAB Digital Solutions, allowing welders to use real-time data to optimize and streamline their entire fabrication workflow.
