Smoky Mountain Jet Boats is known as a top-line manufacturer of aluminum jet boats that thrill riders in water as shallow as 4 inches. The boats are made to Coast Guard specs but wouldn’t be profitable or even possible without Pulsed MIG welding.

The XR-AlumaFeed Push Pull Synergic Aluminum Welding System is the backbone of the operation. The Pulse MIG, portablity of the system, combined with long leads, and synergic control make it the perfect match for welding inside the hull of a jet boat.

Operator Justin Smith relies on the Synergic control to keep on task and reduce the need to walk back to the welder.

Control at your finger tips means that operator Justin Smith can change settings but stay inside the hull of the boat.

Operator Justin Smith makes a change from the hull of the boat he's working on.

Changing material size is not a production slow down using the Invision 352 MPa Plus Dual Wire Feed System. Long leads and finger tip control give the operator the power to make change at the point of the weld.

The 25-foot lead on the XR AlumaPro gun allows the operators to weld the entire length of the boat while the synergic control on the handle of the gun gives the welders the power to make adjustments while remaining in the hull of the project.

A full 48 pounds of Maxal wire go into the average aluminum boat at Smoky Mountain.

About a dozen 100% aluminum jet boats are built by the crew at Smoky Mounatin Jet Boats each year. You can find the finished products at seaside resorts, lake attractions and even one east coast mall pond!

The XR-AlumaFeed Push Pull Synergic Aluminum Welding System's long leads and portability make it the perfect solution for welding aluminum boats and trailers.
