Inverter welding current sources are modern and versatile devices that are equally well suited for all types of welding. The main types of welding using such sources are as follows: manual metal arc welding (MMA), tungsten arc inert gas welding (TIG), and semiautomatic metal inert/active gas welding (MIG/MAG).
The main advantages of the welding inverter:
- Efficiency. Compared with classical transformers and rectifiers, the inverter consumes about 1.5 times less electricity at the same welding current, and at open-circuit operation—8-10 times. In many cases, this allows welding to be done by connecting a welding current source to a household electric grid or to an alternator.
- Compactness. PATON™ welding inverters are much smaller in size and weight compared to the classic equipment.
- Steady operation. The voltage drops in the grid practically are almost neutral in their impact the operation of the welding inverter. It uses the most advanced protection systems, both from overload and from excessive voltage drops.
- Ease of use. PATON™ welding inverters have modes for a beginner that allows a person without a lot of welding experience to use this device with the result of an acceptable level.
- High weld quality. The welding seam turns out neat. The volume of slag and excess metal is minimal. This allows minimizing the work on the further weld processing.
- Use of any type of electrodes. The wide range of settings of the welding inverter allows you to use virtually any electrodes for welding—depending on the process conditions and the type of metal.
Welding inverters are used in various fields—from household needs to aircraft building and shipbuilding. Modern technologies in the manufacture of inverters and high-quality components allow the plant to guarantee the efficiency of the PATON™ inverters for 5 years!
