The POWERTHERM EVO-MMA 160 is a lightweight and incredibly versatile single-phase ARC/MMA welder from Hyundai. Weighing in at just 6.0 kg, the POWERTHERM EVO-MMA 160 is easy to carry thanks to its adjustable harness and lightweight, powder-coated pressed steel case for added corrosion resistance. Accessories include electrode holder with 2 m cable, ground clamp with 1.5 m cable, chipping hammer and wire brush, making the EVO-MMA 160 extremely cost effective.
The EVO-MMA 160 ARC welder features a stepless regulator for stepless control of the welding current with a low power supply for effective welding of thinner materials. The welding current (output current) of the EVO-MMA 160 can be regulated within the range of 10-160 Ampere, making the EVO-MMA 160 adjustable for welding different materials and thicknesses of steel. Watch out for lower quality models by always checking the 'Duty Cycle'. Duty cycle is the amount of time, within a 10 minute period that the welder can be used, at a given output. For example, our 160A welder has a duty cycle of 35% when used on 160A output. This means that for every 10 minutes it cannot be used for three and a half minutes. Cheaper, lower quality welders claim a certain Amperage output, but may have a very low duty cycle at the output they claimed. Always check the duty cycle to make sure you get the best value for money.
The inverter technology used within the POWERTHERM welders has certain advantages over more traditional transformer welders. The inverter type welders tend to be lighter, more cost effective and usually require less input power for comparable output. This makes them more cost effective, not only to buy, but also to use. Features thermal overload protection for maximum durability. Suitable for welding steel, stainless steel, copper, nickel, titanium and their alloys.
