Heliarc 281i & 353i AC/DC

Heliarc 281i & 353i AC/DC

Heliarc® is designed for quality TIG (GTAW) and Stick (SMAW) applications in all types of material. Cost effective inverter technology means increased energy efficiency and more power from a lighter, smaller, and more portable unit. Easy-to-control arc heat input provides high quality welds with an intuitive interface for easy setup and adjustment. Digital controls ensure high accuracy and repeatability. AC or DC Pulsed TIG enables easy control of heat input and weld pool.

Where To Buy


Features

  • AC Hot Start is available at currents below 130A to boost current at the initial start to improve weld puddle initiation and arc penetration
  • Control the arc with remote or foot control - switch between two currents by pressing torch switch
  • Live TIG is ideal in places where high-frequency (HF) is not allowed
  • AC Pulsing up to 2Hz makes Heliarc ideal for welding thin aluminum material
  • Easily store up to 60 parameter sets for quick changes while working
