Portable MIG welder offers multi-process capabilities

WIA (Welding Industries of Australia) has announced the release of the Weldmatic 200i MIG welder, which also offers stick and TIG welding capabilities.

Versatile and portable, the Weldmatic 200i weighs just 13kg making it suitable for onsite maintenance, plus the impressive machine offers the user flexibility in welding processes.

Able to operate with or without shielding gas, the Weldmatic 200i MIG welder suits both gas shielded and gasless flux cored wires.

Users are able to choose between using a shielding gas or the gasless (flux-cored) wires, meaning there is no need for the user to have a shielding gas bottle; reducing both cost and weight.

Easy to set-up and adjust, the Weldmatic 200i’s control panel allows for the easy selection of gas and wire type, with infinitely variable voltage and wire speed, indicated on the digital display.

Even for first time users, a suggested setting chart allows the Weldmatic 200i to be set-up quickly and easily.

With 200 Amps of MIG, 170 Amps of Stick and 200 Amps of Lift-Arc capability, the single phase, multi-process Weldmatic 200i suits a wide range of applications for successfully welding mild steel or aluminium to a very high professional quality.

The machine is suitable for use in a wide range of industries, including fencing, mining and manufacturing maintenance, building and construction industries, contractors and rural workshops through to the DIY user.

With safety a very important issue for WIA, the Weldmatic 200i features a built in VRD (Voltage Reduction Device), which delivers added safety when operating in Stick or Lift-TIG mode, and meets the requirements of site work to AS1674.2 CAT C.

For additional operator safety, the machine’s 240 Volt power source features a built-in thermal protection device that will operate and disable the machine if operated beyond its safe thermal operating zone. The machine is also fully compliant to Australian Standards AS 60974.1 and AS1674.2 CAT C.
