Designed to withstand demanding welding environments and high temperatures, the impressive, next-generation MasterTig range of welding machines from Kemppi sets new standards in usability, welding quality capability and power efficiency.
The new machines have been designed with the professional welder very much in mind. The Weld Assist feature lets users set up 60 per cent faster to help increase productivity. Users simply select the material, thickness, joint type and welding position, then Weld Assist determines the best parameters for the task. It also provides recommendations for electrode size, filler wire, gas flow, groove type, pass profile and travel speed.
Users can also weld up to 30 per cent faster, thanks to the Double Pulse function, which accelerates the travel speed in DC hand welding and mechanised applications. This not only allows welders to power through work, but also reduces distortion levels and delivers excellent weld appearance. It also reduces heat input by 20 per cent, helping to minimise welding costs.
The new machines are also packed with high-technology features that enhance TIG welding. The MicroTack function lets users complete multiple, repetitive tacking on thin sheet applications quickly, without forgoing quality or the visual appearance of the weld. iTEC is engineered ignition technology, which ensures a reliable arc start every time and is particularly useful with long torch extensions for site welding or precise thin materials and low current applications. The Optima AC feature is a customised waveform that combines the best of the traditional sine and square forms, improving welding quality while reducing the noise level of AC TIG welding by 20 per cent.
Other features include 99 memory channels, a weld time clock that lets users measure and record job data, and Auto Pulse.
The machines are also highly energy efficient. Dynamic gas and water cooling ensure optimal temperature control and power efficiency. Depending on the welding power level and duration, the power source cooling fans moderate air flow and cooler motor run time between 15 seconds and 4 minutes to reduce electrical power consumption and localised noise levels.
The new range also offers considerable choice. Users can select models with power variants in 230A and 300A, and the modular design of the machines lets them tailor the MasterTig to their needs. They can choose from various control panels, wireless remote controls and transport cart options as well as personalise the screen saver by uploading their company logo or favourite image.
Designed for AC and DC TIG welding as well as MMA welding, the machines are light and compact, making them easy to manoeuver. The transport units feature floor-level cylinder loading, removing the need for heavy lifting. The P45MT transport unit integrates an innovative pivoting cylinder plate for safe cylinder loading.
Tough and robust, the MasterTig range is built from strong, energy-absorbing, recyclable plastics. Their structure also incorporates impact bridges that protect the power source from everyday knocks.
Compatible with the range is the new Flexlite TX torch range, featuring high-strength, flexible molded handles for increased comfort and reduced welder fatigue. Silicone rubber material in the handle makes a firm grip possible, and the innovative design reduces wrist loading, allowing the welder to concentrate on creating the perfect weld. Flexlite TX torches are available in alternative power classes and lengths.
