Take the guesswork out of welding with AUTO SET!

Transmig 185 Ultra features an impressive AUTO SET function that allows the user to weld like a Pro with no previous welding experience necessary.

Simply select the material type, thickness & consumable diameter and AUTO SET will pre-set the Wirefeed Speed (Amperage) and Voltage (MIG) along a pre-programmed synergic line. Experienced welders can then customise their settings by tweaking their wire speed and volts according to their technique and other factors. The AUTO SET function is available in all 3 processes: MIG, STICK and TIG!

Easily return to your previous weld thanks to a sophisticated Memory Function, or save up to 9 of your favourite weld settings!

Transmig 185 Ultra comes with an integrated wire feeder that holds up to a 200mm spool, and boasts a range of Professional Features to ensure optimal welding results:

  • Burnback Control
  • Arc Control
  • 2T/4T
  • Spot/Stitch Weld
  • Pre/Post Flow
  • Up/Down Slope
  • Arc Force
  • Hot Start
  • Anti-Stick
  • VRD (applicable in Stick mode only).

Most importantly the 185 Ultra is fitted with a 10Amp plug, allowing you the flexibility to plug and play anywhere in your home or workshop.
The power source weighs just over 17kg, and all accessories can be packed inside a convenient purpose built Heavy Duty Backpack (W4018001), making the Ultra portable and ideal for any home or job site.

The Transmig 185 Ultra is back by a 3-year warranty and is fully compliant to Australian Standard AS 60974.1 and IEC 60974.1 so you know you have a safe product you can trust!

With excellent welding performance across a broad range of applications, anyone can weld like a Pro!

You set the process and the Ultra will do the rest!

  1. Benjamin Custance

    We were looking for a multi-process machine that was positioned between entry-level and industrial for a while. When the 185 Ultra came out we brought one straight away. We have had the machine for a year now and it has performed very well for small and large jobs.

    – 10 amp cord (Can plugin anywhere)
    – Leads and gun are all high quality
    – Easy set up for beginners

    – Have to buy the tig torch and only have one option.
    – The weird cheap backpack that was included, why not give us some useful like gloves.

    Very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for a machine in this category.

    The interface (LED Screen) makes this very fast to set up with many memories to save welding parameters (this saves time for next day setup …. as there is none …. just recall memory). Exceptional value for the money ….. you wont be let down, its sophistication makes every simple.

    You can auto set and do other adjustments with the hand piece, and the color screen is cool.

    Absolutely recommend this welder and Cigweld as a brand. Welder is so easy to use and will have you doing professional welds with minimal to no input to the welder settings. Purchased the tig torch to go with this and purchased the wrong torch, Cigweld team rang me ASAP and where more than happy to support. Easy to deal with and great after sales support you rarely get now days. Can’t recommend there quality and service enough. Thanks Team
