Weldcote Striker 140 welding inverter for stick weldingClick image to enlarge

Weldcote, a division of Zika Group, has introduced its Striker 140 welding inverter for stick welding.

The Striker 140 machine is a compact dual voltage (110 volt or 220 volt) single-phase inverter with voltage reduction for direct welding using electrodes of diameters of 1/16 to 1/8 in.

The Striker 140 features a voltage reduction device (VRD), which reduces the voltage at no-load condition to boost safety. It also uses arc force to eliminate electrodes from sticking to the workpiece.

Designed to work with a wide range of input voltages, from 98 volts to 265 volts, the Striker 140 is ideal for use with generators.

The unit offers a hot start function to provide easy ignition of the welding arc. A dual voltage automatically identifies the power grid voltage and operates accordingly with the included 110V or 220V adapter. The current is continuously adjustable using the current adjustment knob and the unit has an easy-to-read digital display.
