Inverter welding machine, AC/DC TIG and MMA welding Modular (gas- or water-cooled) * Gas-cooled version: Portable, including shoulder strap Comfort: * All parameters can be set via the user menu 8 jobs can be programmed * More effective welding with activArc technology Spotmatic – saves 50% of tacking time * Connection capability for remote control, function torch, cooling unit * Cooling unit can be changed with no need for tools or need to open the machine * 3 m mains supply lead with 16 A shock-proof plug
Overvoltage protection: No damage to machine caused if inadvertently connected to 400-V mains voltage
Easy to use on site The Retox torch allows all programs, operating modes and the up/down function to be called up at the touch of a button. Alternating current types for every need Different types of alternating current allow welding properties to be individually selected: sinusoid – for agreeably low-noise welding; trapezoid – the all-round setting for almost every application; rectangular – for particularly difficult applications AC special for thin to thick Simple and reliable: 1 mm to 10 mm! Reliable joining of aluminium panels with very different thicknesses: good penetration in the thicker panel, no melting through the thin panel. Reliable ignition AC: Reliable ignition, stable arc because the shape of the balled end can be very easily adjusted in line with the tungsten electrode diameter. This reduces electrode wear DC: coordinated welding start parameters for ideal ignition conditions with every application. Endless power with a 1-phase mains supply 230 amperes welding current from a 230 volt mains supply with shock-proof plug (16 ampere mains fuse) 100% suitable for construction sites Perfect for large construction sites and very tough assembly work with mains supply leads up to 50 metres or connected directly to a generator. High tolerance to mains fluctuations ensures a perfect welding result.

? Highlights ? Alternating current forms for every need: sinusoidal – trapezoidal – rectangular ? AC special – simple joining of aluminium sheets of very different thicknesses, e.g.1 mm to 10 mm ? Simultaneous AC welding on both sides – synchronisation via mains voltage! ? activArc – precise, focussed arc with reduced heat input and deep penetration for optimum root fusion ? Pulsed TIG welding in Hz and kHz ranges – with or without remote control – for thin metal sheets, difficult materials and special welding tasks ? Spotmatic – saves 50% of tacking time ? Connection capability: remote control, up/down and Retox torches ? Also ideal for mechanised and automated applications
