The Buddy Tig 160 is a portable HF TIG and stick welder for professional welding. It is a robust and durable power source providing state of the art welding perormance and reliability through use of the latest high grade IGBT technology.

The Buddy Tig 160 is a user friendly, robust and lightweight TIG welding machine offering HF start and a stick welding mode.

The Buddy Tig 160 is designed for durability with internal electronics that are cooled by a highly efficient fan for added reliability and monitored by a thermal protection system. The machine has been equipped with three heat sinks which further extend the lifetime of the product.

The casing has been designed to withstand harsh environments and is rated to IP23S standard. The machine incorporates both a shoulder strap and a robust carry handle.

The control panel on the Buddy Tig 160 is very easy to use with one adjustment knob for the setting of the weld current and one to set the slope down time in Tig mode or the arc force setting in MMA mode.

Tig Welding
The Buddy Tig 160 provides superior Tig welding with smooth arc characteristics. The HF arc start prevents contamination of the weld material and electrode. The built-in gas valve automatically controls the gas flow ensuring a low gas consumption. The operator can choose between 2 stroke and 4 stroke torch trigger mode. 

The machine can weld mild steel or stainless steel with or without filler material. 

MMA Welding
For MMA welding the Buddy Tig 160 provides a very smooth DC welding output which allows you to weld most metals such as alloyed and non alloyed steel, stainless steel and cast iron. The arc force and hot start settings are adjusted automatically according to the set welding current giving excellent arc starts and welding performance across the amperage range of the machine.

The Buddy Tig 160 can weld most electrodes from 1.6-3.2mm.
