The Buddyâ„¢ Tig 160 is a user friendly, robust and still light weight TIG machine, offering HF start and a stick (MMA) mode.
The internal electronics are cooled by a highly efficient fan for added reliability and monitored by a thermal protection system. The machine has been equipped with three heat sinks which further extending the life time of the product.
The control panel on the Buddyâ„¢ Tig 160 is very easy to use with one adjustment knob to set the weld current and one to set the slope down time in TIG mode or the arc force in MMA mode.
The Buddyâ„¢ 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.
