New inverter welder from Power-TEC

Power-TEC’s new Multi Arc 201 inverter welder (part number 92513) is an innovative and complete aluminium repair station which combines a 200 amp aluminium MIG welder and an aluminium repair welder in one unit.

The aluminium MIG welder offers all the benefits of inverter-based welding technology over traditional workshop transformer-based machines — lightweight and portable, less electricity consumption, and much more control, as the inverter welder’s power output is adjusted electronically. Wire grade, power, wire speed and panel thickness can all be set and then programmed for perfect welding results and repeatability.

Although designed for aluminium, the MIG welder can also be set up for steel welding or MIG brazing.

The repair welder of the Multi Arc 201 instantly welds on repair washers or pins; fit the washer holder to the pull washer gun, set the controls (power and weld duration in milliseconds) and the repair washer is correctly welded to the damaged panel. If using pins to lift a dent, then the pull washer gun is fitted to the pin puller attachment and the washer holder is substituted with the round pin holder. The repair pin is welded on and the dent lifted by squeezing the handles of the puller.
