TIG (GTAW)

  • AC and DC output for aluminum and non-ferrous alloys, stainless, mild steel & chrome molys.
  • AC Frequency: Adjustable frequency of the AC square wave when welding on aluminum for optimized set up.
  • Wave Balance: Adjustable for optinmized penetration or cleaning action when welding on aluminum.
  • Pulse: Changes the weld current from high to low at a specified frequency, reduces heat input on thin material.
  • Preflow & Postflow: Enables independent control over shielding gas before and after the weld.
  • Upslope / Downslope & Crater modes: Eliminates blow holes on starting and cracking at the end of the weld.
  • Hot Start: Ensures consistent arc starting.
  • HF Arc Start: Provides non-contact arc starting that elimates tungsten or material contamination.
  • Lift TIG Start: Provides optimized TIG arc starting without the use of high frequency.

STICK (SMAW)

  • Fixed Hot Start & Adjustable Arc Force Control for optimum Stick electrode performance.

Other Features:

  • Digital Meters: Voltage and Amperage; Preview and Hold Capability for easy set up.
  • Trigger Control: 4T (Latch) eliminates operator fatigue.
  • Gas Purge: Ensures gas lines are purged at start of weld.
  • Comprehensive Setup Chart: Weld set up guide for optimum welding performance over a wide range of materials.
  • Remote Receptacle: Enables connection of remote control devices like a foot pedal and torch slide control
  • Excellent Portability: Lightweight at 48.4 lbs
  • Overload Protection: Shuts down the power source to protect the internal electrical components from overheating.
  • Meets IP23S Standards: Suitable for outdoor use.
