TIG welding

The Buddy™ Tig 160 provides superior TIG welding with smooth arc characteristics. The HF arc start prevents contamination of the weld material and electrode. The built in gas valve automatically controls the gas flow ensuring a low gas consumption. The operator can chose between 2 stroke and 4 stroke torch trigger mode. The machine can weld mild steel or stainless steel with or without filler material.

MMA welding

The Buddy™ Tig 160 provides a smooth DC (Direct Current) welding power which allows you to weld most metals such as alloyed and non alloyed steel, stainless steel and cast iron. The arc force and hot start settings are adjusted automatically according to the set welding current giving excellent arc starts and welding performance across the amperage range of the machine. The Buddy™ Tig 160 can weld most electrodes from Ø1.6 - 3.2 mm.
