What is a multi-purpose welder?

The multi-purpose welders are versatile, all-in-one machines that allow you to complete your welding projects without shifting welders. You can easily switch your multi-purpose welder to your required welding method. All multi-purpose welders are capable of MIG and TIG welding with few additional features.

Apart from MIG and TIG, the additional available options depend on the brand. It is essential to check the specifications before purchasing the multi-purpose welder. Brands like Lincoln, Miller, Hobart and ESAB are producing durable and reliable welders for the economy and increased productivity.

Most of the brands combine MIG, TIG and stick welding features in a single machine including flux-cored welding. However, you may also find multi-purpose welders that offer the following combinations: MIG/TIG/CUTTER: These kind of welders are helpful for operators who work at the construction sites. TIG/STICK/PLASMA: these combinations are suitable when exotic materials other than steel and aluminum are used.

What is the advantage of multi-purpose welder?

The need for buying two or three welders for different types of welding has led to the evolution of multi-purpose welders. The modern inverter technology has made it easy to perform all types of welding by a single compact, lightweight machine. Having a multi-purpose welder gives several advantages:

  • It is easier to store as it occupies less space.
  • It is easy to carry around in the field or industry where different types of welds are required to be performed by the same operator.
  • It is easy to operate by beginners and learners.
  • It eliminates the need for renting out welders.
  • It may reduce the welding cost.

How to choose the best multi-purpose welder?

With hundreds of multi-purpose welders available in the market, it is tough to choose the one which is suitable for you in terms of budget and functionality. Here are some essential points you must consider before purchasing the multi-purpose welder.

  • Is it really a multi performer

The modern multi-purpose welders are versatile and can perform MIG (GMAW), TIG (GTAW) and stick (SMAW) welding. They can also handle flux-cored (FCAW) welding.

Most of them can also facilitate a spool gun for aluminum welding.

  • Avoid unnecessary functions: reduce your cost.

Identify the welding you will need in future. Don’t spend on extra parts. For example, you never have to weld aluminum, so there’s no need for a spool gun. Even a spool gun compatible welder isn’t your requirement.

  • Cooling option: to get ultimate performance always

The welder should be equipped with a quick cooling mechanism to prevent damage to the machine. Some welders feature fan on-demand, meaning that the operator can turn on the fan when needed.

Most of the multifunction welders automatically shut down when they are overheated or reach their duty cycle. Study the cooling mechanism before you order your welder.

  • Safety first: life is more valuable

A few years back, the operator had to decide the wire feed speed and amperage, after considering the metal thickness, gas type and wire size. Some times mistakes in operator's devised settings lead to disasters like short circuit, fire or gas-related incidents. With the advent of most modern technology – the smart mode allows the operator to enter the variables, and the welder automatically sets the amperage and wire feed speed.

  • Portability: ensure random movement

Do you work in an industrial setup or you have your welding business? Are you a repair and maintenance specialist or just a hobbyist? A portable welding machine has a crucial role in the life of a welding operator. The weight and dimensions of a welding machine determine its portability. The more the operator needs to move around during his job, the more portable the welder should be. Therefore a lightweight and compact machine that easily accommodates all consumables within its case is essential. The use of IGBT inverter technology has made it possible to produce sturdy welds by small-sized, lightweight welders which use IGBT inverter technology.

  • Dual voltage: get stress less for mobility

Most of the domestic power outputs supply 120 V. Adaptable dual voltage welders are better as they reduce the hassle related to the power supply.

  • Will it adapted with your project

Consider the type of projects that you will be working on. Several industries use different metals for welding purposes. Each metal has its specific welding thickness.

  • Price and weight

The price of a multi-purpose welder depends upon the brand. There are few reliable brands which offer high-quality welders at a reasonable price.

Weight of a welder usually denotes its welding power. Heavier welders produce more amperage for better welds.

Conclusion

Select the best multi purpose welder from a reliable manufacturer to ensure quality welds with convenience. The welders from famous brands are easy to set up and use. They are also easy to switch from one type of welding to the other. The digital display helps the operator in adjusting different variables to produce excellent and clean welds efficiently.

FAQ's

Are multi-purpose welders any good?

If you are interested in using a single welder for different types of welding, you can buy a multi-purpose welder. But sometimes its cost is higher than buying two or three separate welders. These welders are easy to carry and store rather than the single purpose welders.
