The TIGMATE™ is a complete AC/DC, TIG and Stick welding package. All you need is a bottle of argon shielding gas or your choice of Stick electrodes and you're ready to start welding.

In the TIG mode, the TIGMATE™ offers superior performance: 18 gauge to 3/16 in. (1.2 to 4.8 mm) steel and stainless steel; 14 gauge to 3/16 in. (1.8 to 4.8 mm) aluminum. For thicker metals, take advantage of the Stick mode using 3/32 and 1/8 in. (2.4 and 3.2 mm) electrodes.

Comes complete with:
  • 150 amp TIG torch with 12 1/2 ft (3.8 m) cord and flow-through quick-connect
  • 25 ft. (7.6 m) TIG torch supplied with finger tip control models
  • Fingertip or foot-operated amperage control
  • 12 ft. (3.7 m) work cable with clamp
  • Electrode holder and 15 ft (4.6 m) cable with quick-connect
  • Gas regulator, flowmeter and shielding gas hose
  • "How-To" DVD
  • CC
  • AC/DC
  • 1 Phase
StickStick (SMAW)
Material Thickness: Welds 18 gauge up to 3/16 inch stainless steel and steel, 14 ga up to 3/16 in aluminum.

  • Upgraded circuitry gives you finer TIG output adjustment with the remote foot or fingertip control. If you need more output while using the remote control, simply increase the setting of the front panel amperage control.
  • AC output for superior aluminum welding, DC output for mild and stainless steel
  • Four-position polarity and range selector switch offers two AC current ranges, DC electrode (-) for TIG, and DC electrode (+) for Stick
  • Special arc starting circuitry eliminates high-frequency starts
  • Built-in arc assist stabilizer for AC TIG on aluminum
  • Built-in arc assist starter for DC TIG
  • Process switch automatically sets machine for TIG or Stick
  • Unique "flow-through" shielding gas TIG torch connection allows removal of torch without tools
  • Preset automatic postflow timer protects tungsten tip, workpiece and torch
  • Automatic high temperature shutdown
