This unit is specifically designed for the budget-conscious user who doesn’t want to sacrifice on quality or weld results. With its compact casing and IP23S rating the 180 AC/DC is ideal for indoor or outdoor use around the workshop and is easy to carry and manoeuvre into hard to reach places when doing light fabrication and maintenance of mild steels, stainless steels and aluminum.

In TIG mode the unit has all the features required to customise your welding preferences – High Frequency (HF), Up/Down Slope, Pre/Post
Flow, 2T/4T Trigger Function, Spot Mode and Gas Purge for AC or DC TIG welding. When welding in AC only, Frequency and Wave Balance can be refined with impressive adjustability and when operating in Pulse Mode the user has full flexibility to adjust Frequency, Width and Peak Current.

In Stick mode the 180 AC/DC features VRD, Anti-Stick and Hot Start and can weld with up to 3.2mm electrodes. The CIGWELD WeldSkill 180 AC/DC comes as a complete kit with an 4m Remote Control TIG Torch, Argon Regulator/Flowmeter, 4m Electrode Holder and Work Clamp and a TIG Accessory Kit with tungstens, nozzles, collets etc. to get you up and welding in no time.

WeldSkill 70S-6 is a copper coated, low carbon steel filler rod suitable for the oxy-acetylene (fusion) welding and Gas Tungsten Arc (TIG) welding of a wide range of mild and medium strength steels.

WeldSkill 70S-6 is recommended for the TIG welding of steel pipes, plates and castings with a tensile strength in the 500 MPa class. It is tolerant to surface rust and mill scale and is ideal for root pass welding applications where tough and ductile welds are produced.

When using WeldSkill 70S-6 for gas welding applications a neutral to slightly reducing flame setting is recommended.

WeldSkill 316L stainless steel is a high quality low carbon rod for the Gas or Gas Tungsten Arc (TIG) welding of Molybdenum bearing stainless steels; in particular matching 316 and 316L alloys.

WeldSkill 316L is also suitable for the general welding of other 300 series stainless steels including 302 and 304; as well as ferritic stainless steels grades such as 409, 444 and 3Cr12.
