Welding Inverter for TIG and Stick Welding

Weldcote, a division of Zika Group, offers the Striker 160 welding inverter for TIG and stick welding. Weighing 21.4 lbs., the Striker 160 machine is a compact dual voltage (115 volt or 230 volt) single-phase inverter unit with digital readouts that automatically identifies the power grid voltage and operates accordingly.

"The Striker 160 machine features power factor corrector (PFC), which increases power efficiency, reduces input power requirements, and stabilizes the welding current, maximizing efficiency on extension cords and generators," said a company spokesperson. "As a safety precaution, it has a voltage reduction device (VDR) that reduces the voltage across the outputs when idling. Designed to work with a wide range of input voltages, from 98 volts to 265 volts, the Striker 160 is ideal for use with generators."

"As more and more welding professionals have been using Weldcote consumables to conduct their jobs, we are happy to now offer options for high quality equipment, as we establish Weldcote as a one-stop solution that helps welders do their jobs safer, easier and faster," said Joe O'Mera, CEO of Weldcote.

The Striker 160 unit offers direct current welding using coated electrodes of diameters from 1/16" to 5/32". It is 6010 electrode capable. A hot start function provides easy ignition of the weld arc, while arc force prevents the electrode from sticking to the workpiece. A power-saving smart fan feature reduces dust and improves the life of the fan.

The Striker 160 model comes ready to stick weld with a 230-volt to 115-volt adaptor, electrode holder, ground clamp and cables. An optional TIG torch with 12' cable can be purchased separately, as well as a flow gauge regulator and gas hose.
