Portable Inverter TIG

The BuddyTM Tigl 60 is a robust and durable power source for the professional welder. The machine provides state-of-the-art welding performance and reliability through use of the latest IGBT technology.
Co2 Welding Machines
Designed for durability
The BuddyTm Tig160 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 casing has been designed to withstand harsh environments and rated to IP 23S standard. The machine incorporates both a shoulder strap and a robust carry handle.
Control Panel
The control panel on the Buddynlig160 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.
TIG welding
The BuddyTmTig1 60 offers superior TIG welding with smooth arc characteristics. The HF arc start prevents contaminating the weld material and electrode .The built-in gas valve automatically controls the gas flow ensuring a low gas consumption.

The operator can choose 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 BuddrTig160 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.
Superior arc characteristics - Smooth welding conditions
Generator Compliant - suitable for use with generators.
Easy to use - Set the welding current and weld with excellent result.
Practical design - make the power source easy to carry which enablesuse at almost any work site
Robust design - withstands harsh environments
Can be used with extended mains cable - provides extended working range.
