ESAB Welding & Cutting Products introduces the new MiniArc 161LTS power source. Weighing only 18 lbs., the MiniArc 161 is an extremely portable, 115 or 230 V, single-phase machine for TIG and stick welding. The Automatic Primary Select function configures to the primary input supplied. When welding in DC mode, the MiniArc 161 ranges from 5 to 160 amps. It features a fixed hot start function, which allows the operator to easily strike an arc without the electrode sticking to the plate. The machine’s fixed arc force allows the operator to get deeper penetration into the plate without the electrode sticking. The lift arc tig feature allows the operator to lift the tungsten, eliminating the risk of depositing tungsten into the plate.
