Welding Essentials: Selecting your New Weldmatic

WIA's range of welding machines are suited to a range of applications including maintenance, rural and construction industries. Selecting the right welding machine can be challenging, but we are here to help you make the best choice.

Four simple points to consider:

Process: What process do you need? Are you doing MIG, Stick, DC TIG, AC TIG or Plasma Cutting? Selecting a welding machine based on what process you need will help make the decision easier.

Plug: 10 Amp, 15 Amp, 25 Amp, 32 Amp, single phase (240 V) or 3 phase (415 V)? Consider how much power you need to get the job done.

Material: From steel to aluminium, selecting a welding machine that’s capable to tackle different materials will help make your decision easier.

Metal thickness: thin gauge, 6, 8, 10, or 12mm plus – choosing a machine that can tackle certain metal thicknesses is key to choosing an appropriate machine.

The right welding machine for each industry

The best welding machine for one person, isn’t necessarily the right one for another. Whether you’re doing regular fencing work on a farm or doing intricate beading work in a fabrication workshop – the welding machine you choose comes down to application and specification needs.

Multi-process welding machines for every application

No matter what industry you are in, having a multi-process welding machine can make all the difference. With light to medium fabrication in mind, the new Weldmatic range offers the flexibility to weld in different processes including MIG, Stick and TIG. For quick and easy adjustment, selected models offer an LCD screen interface with pre-set parameters, an ideal feature for less experienced operators. From the entry level Weldmatic 180 to the professional Weldmatic 500, all WIA machines come with 3 years warranty – offering the reliability and performance needed to get the job done.
