ESAB Rebel™ Rocks SEMA and FABTECH

Thousands of visitors flocked to the ESAB booth to try Rebel, a multi-process, multi-voltage portable welder with breakthrough technology. Our cameras were on hand to capture comments, which were nothing short of amazing. Just so you don't think we're cherry picking, you can see the longer versions of all these videos in our SEMA and FABTECH playlists.

To help launch Rebel, ESAB teamed up with Ian Johnson, star of the Xtreme Off Road TV show (here's a brief bio to get to know Ian). As a professional fabricator, we asked Ian to "drop a little Rebel truth" in this series of videos, each explaining one benefit of Rebel:

  1. True multi-process
  2. True multi-voltage
  3. sMIG "smart MIG"
  4. TFT color display
  5. Rugged
  6. Ready-to-weld
  7. Duty cycle

Two Guys Garage host Willie B also stopped by our SEMA exhibit, and he brought the film crew with him. ESAB appears in their SEMA Show Special, which premiered Friday, January 15, on MAV TV. Get the Two Guys Garage schedule here, and check out the website as well.

Looking for your First CNC Cutting System?

Andrew McLaughlin from LetzRoll Offroad Racing also joined ESAB at both shows. One of his favorite tools is the Crossbow CNC plasma/oxy-fuel cutting system. See why Andrew says that, "Crossbow takes the hard out of CNC cutting" for fabricating components for his Ultra4 race vehicles.
