Inconsistent filler metals create rework and reduce throughput.

Variations in filler metal quality can decrease throughput and cost you money. Get the welding productivity you need with precisely formulated Hobart filler metals. Consistent performance is just one reason why Tigercat® forestry equipment depends on Hobart — and so can you.

It's the tie that binds POWER + PRECISION.

Tigercat® forestry equipment is the most rugged in the world. See why their heavy equipment is built using Hobart filler metals.

Hobart FabCOR Edge welding wire

FabCOR®Edge™

This metal-cored wire minimizes the silicon islands that can affect multi-pass welds and paint adhesion on a finished weld. It also provides exceptionally low spatter levels to reduce post-weld cleanup, helping maximize efficiency in your operation.

Hobart FabCOR 86R welding wire

FabCOR®86R

Higher deoxidation elements allow this metal-cored wire to better penetrate mill scale, reducing pre-weld prep. This wire also helps minimize spatter and post-weld cleanup. Both benefits provide more time to focus on productive manufacturing.
