Accessories for the ESAB Fabricator 186 AC/DC Welder:
This stick and TIG welding machine is perfect for experienced welders, tradesmen, maintenance and repair, and heavy-duty jobs. It offers three process capabilities: HF TIG, LIFT TIG, and STICK solutions with AC and DC output. This is a fully-featured, professional-grade machine designed to be easy to use with integrated digital controls and a simple to use set up chart.
User reviews on this machine have been excellent, and more than a few welders have replaced their big single phase TIG welders with the ESAB Fabricator 186. It's affordably priced, has a respectable duty cycle, and an AC/DC inverter with adjustable ac frequency. Better arc characteristics, low power consumption and it takes up 1/20 of the space of old-school machines.
Three Process Capability: HF TIG (GTAW), LIFT TIG (GTAW), STICK (SMAW).
- Experienced welders
- Maintenance and repair
- Heavy-duty jobs
Features & Benefits:
- AC and DC output for aluminum and non-ferrous alloys, stainless, mild steel & chromoly
- AC Frequency: Adjustable frequency of the AC square wave when welding on aluminum for optimized set up (15 Hz - 150Hz)
- Wave Balance: Adjustable for optimized penetration or cleaning action when welding on aluminum
- HF Arc Start: Provides non-contact arc starting that eliminates tungsten or material contamination
- Lift TIG Start: Provides optimized TIG arc starting without the use of high frequency
- Pulse: Changes the weld current from high to low at a specified frequency, reduces heat input on thin material (0.5 Hz - 200 Hz)
- Pre flow & Postflow: Enables independent control over shielding gas before and after the weld
- Upslope / Downslope & Crater modes: Eliminates cracking at the end of the weld
- Hot Start: Ensures fusion at arc starts for both TIG and Stick processes
STICK: - Adjustable Arc Force & Hot Start Control for optimum Stick electrode performance.
- Digital Meters: Voltage and Amperage; Preview and Hold Capability for easy setup
- Trigger Control: 4T (Latch) eliminates operator fatigue
- Comprehensive Setup Chart: Weld set up guide for optimum welding performance over a wide range of materials
- Remote Receptacle: Enables connection of remote control devices like a foot pedal and torch slide control
- Excellent Portability: Weighs just 48.4 lbs
- Overload Protection: Shuts down the power source to protect the internal electrical components from overheating
- IP23S: Suitable for outdoor use.
