Product Overview

Manufacturer: Gys

  • The GYS PROTIG 161 DC is ultra-compact inverter designed with advanced technology to provide exceptional performance in both DC TIG & MMA welding modes. Regardless of changes in distance between the electrode and work piece, the secondary regulation ensures optimum arc stability and constant current in all positions. The ergonomic interface on the GYS PROTIG 161 DC makes setting adjustments easy and intuitive. Optimised TIG DC welding provides quality welds on all ferrous materials such as steel, stainless steel, titanium, and can also be used for welding copper and its alloys.

    Two modes of arc ignition, TIG DC HF start provides an easy & reliable non-contact method to create the arc, which helps to reduce the possibility of electrode contamination. The TIG DC Lift start mode is available for use in environments where the use of HF may be prohibited.

    TIG DC pulse offers the benefits of decreased distortion due to lower heat inputs, higher deposition rates when welding out of position, stronger welds due to better fusion compared to non-pulse mode and lower level of fume. The Pulse frequency can be adjusted between 0.1 -100Hz making it suitable for use with thin sheet material from 0.3mm.

    Spot function makes it possible to minimize tacking times with fast, precise, and clean tack welds when joining thin sheets.

    Advanced features include easy to use digital control panel allowing adjustment of all welding parameters such as pre- gas, upslope, pulse frequency, downslope & post-gas.

    The PROTIG 161 DC HF is also a fully functioning MMA machine with two MMA welding modes: MMA standard for welding with basic and rutile electrodes up to 4mm diameter. MMA adjustable Pulse helps to simplify welding in the vertical upright position.

     Adjustable Hot Start is used to deliver a higher amperage when the electrode first comes into contact with the metal and can be adjusted in seconds according to the type of material. A lower Hot Start is used for thin metal sheets, whilst a higher Hot Start is better for metals which are more difficult to weld such as dirty or oxidized sheets.

    Anti sticking helps to reduces the risk of the electrode sticking if it comes into contact with the workpiece.

    Adjustable Arc force helps to ensure better penetration and prevention of the electrode sticking during the welding process.

    The easy to view display shows the current and voltage during and after welding process for Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS) and Procedure Qualification Records (PQR) purposes.

    Up to 10 different jobs can be stored in the machine for each process ensuring perfect and consistent welds when producing repetitive tasks.

    Intelligent ventilation management helps to reduce power consumption, reduces dust contamination and substation noise.

    With its reinforced casing and anti-shock pads on each side of the machine makes the PROTIG 161 DC HF ideal for workshop or onsite usage.

    Protec 400 can withstand occasional or permanent voltage variations on the electrical network up to 400volt.
