Or professional mobile welder having features like built in technology which helps to minimise spatter. The Titan 188 MIG machine will run 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0mm wire with an option to also run gas less wire. We will always recommend using wire designed for use with shielding gas as weld results will nearly always be better. If for whatever reason you do need to change the polarity it is very quick and easy thanks to the large. Plug on the front of the machine.
Flux cored wire often has to be used when welding outside, or of course switch to MMA / stick welding mode and weld with arc electrodes sizes 1,6mm up to 3,2mm (material thickness 0,8mm to 6.4mm - half to double the electrode size is the normal working range for an electrode). Welding from 30 to 180 amps make the welder perfect for thin car body panels right up to thicker pieces of plate and box section. Welding current may be adjusted a fraction of an amp at a time so you are able to set exactly the right current for the job you are doing without having to adjust the wire speed to compensate. Having a good 25% duty cycle at full power - 180 Amps - measured at 40 C, means that whatever the project, this machine will keep performing well for long working periods. Duty cycle is measured in 10 minute segments, so the 25% Duty Cycle would mean that you are able to weld for 2.5 minutes with 7.5 minutes rest when welding at full power (180 amps) with an ambient working temperature of 40C.
With that said, we have welded with this machine running 1.0mm wire on 180 amps. We reached 12 minutes constant welding before we had to stop. For the video - please search'Headux 188 Duty Video.
In reality what does this mean for you, well in our test at. We were able to weld at full power (180A) with 1,0mm MIG wire (Argon + 5%Co2 gas mix) for a continuous 12 minutes and 38 seconds before we stopped due to our discomfort due to the heat being generated from the weld, we used a MB25 MIG torch as it has a higher duty cycle than the MB15 style normally supplied / used with this power of welder. Further field trials carried out at a local fabrication firm who tested this machine, they operated the Titan 188 MIG every day for over a month, in a production. They loved it commenting how clean the weld was.
The Titan 188 was very well received and although at first they were dubious because of it's small size they were really impressed with the performance from such a small and portable welder. Stick welding the amperage is lowered to just 10 amps and will run right up to 160 amps. This means you are well in the safe zone for welding with 1.6mm rods right through to 3.2mm rods. If you do ever use this machine in MMA mode you will be perfectly happy with it's performance. Much like welding with other IGBT stick sets but with the added bonus of the fact it is a MIG welder.With a 40 watt wire feed motor the wire feed will be reliable for a long time to come and not cause issues like some machines. The same may be said with just how the machine has been constructed. Simple elements like threaded captive nuts for the case screws to remain securely in place, heat sync supports integral to the case design, providing a forced air cooling'tunnel' to make the fan cooling even more efficient plus many other design details which make this MIG welder a machine that is designed to last.
The machine includes features often only found on much more costly MIG welders like the socket for a "spool on gun" MIG torch which makes welding with soft wires like aluminium and. The Titan 188 has a burn back control as well as a wire "inch" control in the wire cavity. Switching to flux cored wire is very simple when you need to weld outside in the open, simply swap the. Plugs over on the front panel.At the rear of the machine you have the convenience of the gas hose being fitted using a quick connector so you may simply plug or unplug the hose on to your welder making it much easier to move. When welding outside using gas less / flux cored wire the change doesn't require any tools and takes just two seconds. Plug on the panel front and swap over to the second "-". Socket move the work return lead to the "+". If you request a standard heavy duty 13 Amp 3 pin plug instead of the 16 Amp blue plug included with you machine you need to remember that you will most probably not be able to operate at full power, only being able to work up to 130 or 140 Amps before the fuse blows.
So what do you get? The answer is rather simple but for clarity it is as follows. Titan 188 MIG Welder 180 amp MIG & 160A MMA welder with a 2 meter power cable. 3m MB15 style MIG Euro mounting torch.
3m work return lead (earth lead) with. Fitted gas hose 3m with quick connector.
True flow meter regulator 2 - 30 l/min. 16 amp blue plug (not fitted).
Quick start guide - written by. Yes there will always be optional parts! This machine is spool on gun ready so if you have a use for a spool on gun torch then you don't have to spend out on a retrofit torch. Torch upgrades - length and type.MMA torch - we make these up to order so the choice is yours in terms of length and electrode holder type. Well the machine wouldn't weld without it. We have a range of material types and diameters but the most common ones are listed in the related products section. 20.4 - 26.4. 490 x 195 x 380mm. If your machine was to fail we will collect the machine from you, inspect and repair or replace the machine in question and dispatch back to your address.
