MMA/TIG Lift Welder Inverter Paton PRO-160 – basic data

Universal inverter welder PATON PRO-160 is designed for manual arc welding with the MMA method, argon-arc welding with the TIG method with direct current and semi-automatic welding with the MIG/MAG method in a shield of gases and protective mixtures.


This model achieves a duty cycle of 70% at its full nominal current of 160А, which is sufficient to work with any electrodes from Ф1.6mm up to fusible Ф4mm and semi-automatic welding with solid wire of diameter from Ф0.6mm to Ф1.0mm (MIG/MAG welding is possible after purchasing a wire feeder). The device is set to optimal values for most cases of use. Demanding users can select each parameter individually.


The VDI PRO series offers full electronic control, which allows greater control of the welding process for each of the selected methods, as well as allowing maximum utilization of the equipment potential. Welding inverters from the PRO series are dedicated for industrial use as well as for the most demanding home users.
