    Accessories for the ESAB Fabricator 186 AC/DC Welder:


    Thermal Arc Fabricator 186 WeldingThis 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).

    Victor Technologies WeldingThe ESAB Fabricator 186 AC/DC is ideal for:

    • Experienced welders
    • Tradesmen
    • 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.

    Other Features:
    - 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
