ESAB Expands Inverter Line-UP
ESAB now offers an expanded line of Stick/TIG and AC/DC TIG/Stick inverters, providing a broad range of solutions for mechanical contracting, light fabrication, repair and maintenance, farm/ranch, motorsports and home-hobby applications. All these inverters combine compact, lightweight portability with excellent arc performance and user-friendly controls.
The ES Series
For value and portability, the ES (ESAB Stick) Stick series features the ES 95i DC Stick and ES 95i Stick/TIG welding systems. These units weigh just 9.7 lbs. and offer up to 90 amps of output for light repair and maintenance and hobbyist applications.
The ET Series
The ET (ESAB TIG) series includes the new ET 141i AC/DC, which boasts several category firsts. It is the first inverter to run off 120V primary power that can provide an AC/DC TIG output, as well as the first to provide both HF and Lift TIG arc starts. The welder features output range of 10 to 140 amps (140A/15.6V @ 20% duty cycle). Preset values for AC output frequency and wave balance optimize simplicity for light-duty welding. The ET 141i AC/DC also provides a DC Stick output of up to 90 amps for welding with 1/16- or 3/32-in. diameter electrodes. It weighs 48 lbs. and provides a full output on a 20-amp circuit.
For professional performance in a DC-only system, check out the ET 201i DC TIG/Stick. It uses 120V or 208/230V primary current, delivers DC TIG and Stick outputs up to 200 amps and provides HF (high frequency) and Lift TIG arc starts. Controls include adjustable values for downslope, Arc Force and gas pre- and post-flow. It weighs 21.6 lbs., providing the combination of portability and power desired by mechanical contractors and maintenance professionals.
ESAB Fabricator® Series
The Fabricator 141i improves results in DIY and home hobby use, as well as other light-duty welding projects in motorsports, auto repair, farm/ranch, metal art and maintenance applications. It offers 10 to 140 amps of power for MIG and Lift TIG welding and 90 amps for Stick welding.The Fabricator 252i is a multi-process, fully integrated, portable welder designed for light industrial fabrication, mechanical contractors, farm/ranch, motorsports, maintenance/repair, light construction and continuing technical educational and training facilities. It weighs 66 lbs. and with an output range of 5- to 300-amps (250 amps at 40% duty cycle).
