200 Will Get You 25
New from HTP America is their Invertig 201 AC/DC TIG welder that delivers 200 amps of welding power, yet pulls only 25 amps. Compared to other TIG welders sold today, the Invertig 201 produces almost 10 percent more power while using 60 percent less electricity. The Invertig 201 allows users to vary the AC frequency from 20 Hz to 200 Hz while maintaining a square wave throughout the complete range, providing more control over the arc. Running at higher frequencies (150 to 200 Hz) produces a tighter arc and results in a narrower bead. Balance is also adjustable from 10 to 90 percent. Inverter technology provides a smooth, stable arc, making intricate frame work on mild steel, chrome-moly, stainless steel, and Inconel unusually easy. With variable frequency in AC, the Invertig 201 produces great results when welding thin aluminum. Pulsing, with a frequency from 0.4 to 300 Hz, is standard. The new Invertig 201 weighs just 65 pounds and fits in a cabinet measuring 20 inches long by 91/2 inches wide by 193/4 inches high. The machine comes standard with a 25-foot SR-17 air-cooled TIG torch, a foot pedal with 15-foot cable, and a gas regulator. A lineup of optional accessories is available. For more information on the Invertig 201, contact 800/USA-WELD.
