Light­weight, por­ta­ble welder with heavy­weight per­for­mance

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -­eren­quiry #150402a.

Weigh­ing just 6.5kg, the com­pact Wel­darc 180i DC Stick and DC TIG weld­ing ma­chine of­fers the user the porta­bil­ity and per­for­mance re­quired for on-site and field main­te­nance ap­pli­ca­tions.

The ma­chine’s built in Arc Force fea­ture, con­stantly mon­i­tors the arc volt­age and will boost out­put if low arc volt­age oc­curs.

An­other key fea­ture of the Wel­darc 180i is the ma­chine’s built-in “hot start” fea­ture, which when in man­ual arc mode, of­fers the welder even bet­ter arc start­ing.

The com­bined fea­tures of Arc Force, Hot Start and high open cir­cuit volt­age ca­pa­bil­ity al­lows the use of Cel­lu­lose elec­trodes, which can be very dif­fi­cult to use on smaller welders, but the Wel­darc 180i can han­dle them with ease.

The TIG weld­ing mode fea­tures Lift Arc start­ing, which al­lows the arc to slowly build up, elim­i­nat­ing the need for scratch start­ing and the pos­si­bil­ity of tung­sten elec­trode dam­age, and work piece con­tam­i­na­tion. With safety a very im­por­tant is­sue, the ma­chine also fea­tures a built in VRD ( Volt­age Re­duc­tion De­vice), which de­liv­ers added safety when op­er­at­ing in stick or lift-TIG mode. Suit­able for both the pro­fes­sional welder and the DIY en­thu­si­ast, the light­weight Wel­darc 180i suits 2.04.0mm elec­trodes op­er­at­ing from a 15A 240Vac sup­ply. And weigh­ing only 6.5kg, the Wel­darc 180i can go wher­ever the job takes the welder, mak­ing it ideal for on­site main­te­nance.

The Wel­darc 180i is suit­able for use in a wide range of in­dus­tries, in­clud­ing mine and man­u­fac­tur­ing main­te­nance, build­ing and con­struc­tion in­dus­tries, food and wine sec­tors, con­trac­tors and ru­ral work­shops through to the DIY en­thu­si­ast.
