This multi-process welder delivers up to 500 amps of welding power for a variety of applications, including construction and fabrication. It features an IP23 rating for outdoor operation and storage, and the latest inverter technology will save you real money on the utility costs associated with your welding operations.
Flexible Multi-Process Capability – Including stick, Touch Start TIG® (DC), MIG, flux-cored welding and carbon arc gouging with up to a 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) carbon.
Faster arc response means smoother arc action and more consistent bead appearance.
- Low power consumption results in daily operational cost savings.
- Enhanced portability – typically 50% less weight, size and footprint.
- VRD® (Voltage Reduction Device™) - reduces OCV (open circuit voltage) when not welding for added safety.
Bright Digital Amp and Volt Meters – Easy to monitor, even in sunlight, and presettable for precise procedure control.
Compact, Durable Case – Tough IP23 enclosure rating ensures the Flextec™ 450 will withstand extreme field environments.
Selectable Hot Start – Turn it off for thin material or flip it on to get the extra starting amperage you need for thick material and difficult to use electrodes.
Variable Arc Control – In stick mode, vary the arc force to obtain the “soft” or “crisp” arc you want as conditions require. In CV modes, vary the pinch or inductance to control spatter, fluidity and bead.
