Thermal Arc® 186 AC/DC TIG/Stick Welder System with Remote Fingertip Control W1006301

The Thermal Arc® 186 TIG Welder with remote fingertip control is an AC/DC welding power source that is capable of AC aluminum TIG welding with wave balance adjustment. With up to 200 amps of welding output using 208/230 volt input power, the Thermal Arc® 186 has the same performance and features as other TIG welders that cost hundreds of dollars more.

The 186 AC/DC has true square wave TIG welding output with lift start or High Frequency arc starting. Wave Balance controls allow you to change the TIG arc wave form, giving you complete control over the amount of time spent on DCEP (cleaning) and DCEN (penetration) parts of each cycle, increasing arc stability. The TIG torch included in the package has an integrated amperage control dial and on/off switch, which allows for the ultimate in welding control and simplicity.

Processes
  • AC/DC TIG (GTAW)
  • Pulsed TIG (GTAW)
  • Stick (SMAW)

    Applications
    Aluminum Fabricators
    Training Institutions
    Maintenance & Repair
    On-Site & Portable Welding Applications
    Automotive, Boats & Trailers

    Features
  • AC and DC output for aluminum and non-ferrous alloys, stainless, mild steel & chrome moly.
  • AC Frequency: Adjustable frequency of the AC square wave when welding on aluminum for optimized set up (15 Hz - 150Hz).
  • Wave Balance: Adjustable for optimized penetration or cleaning action when welding on aluminum.
  • HF Arc Start: Provides non-contact arc starting that eliminates tungsten or material contamination.
  • Lift TIG Start: Provides optimized TIG arc starting without the use of high frequency.
  • Pulse: Changes the weld current from high to low at a specified frequency, reduces heat input on thin material (0.5 Hz - 200 Hz).
  • Preflow & Postflow: Enables independent control over shielding gas before and after the weld.
  • Upslope / Downslope & Crater modes: Eliminates cracking at the end of the weld.
  • Hot Start: Ensures fusion at arc starts for both TIG and Stick processes.
  • Adjustable Arc Force & Hot Start Control for optimum Stick electrode performance.
  • Digital Meters: Voltage and Amperage; Preview and Hold Capability for easy set up
  • Trigger Control: 4T (Latch) eliminates operator fatigue

    By Rosemary from Florida on December 17, 2012
    I'm Christmas shopping for my husband. i think he is asking for something that does not exist. I'm looking for a TIG welder that can weld aluminum and stainless, with finger control (not foot), that is powered by 110 (not 220). This looks like a nice machine - but is 220. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you
    By Customer Service on December 18, 2012

    Answer:
    The Thermal Arc 186 AC/DC TIG Welder System w/Fingertip Conrol W1006301 will do what your husband is looking for but it is a 220 volt machine.The Miller Diversion 180 TIG Welder 907460 will Tig weld aluminum and stainless and is a dual voltage machine that will run on 110v or 220 volt..It has a maximum material thickness of 3/16" however when the machine is running on 110volts the maximum thickness will be reduced.

    Hi,

    Do you ship to Canada (Ontario), and what would the charges be? Could I pick up one of these units near to a border say, Niagra falls or Detroit?

    Do you know of a Canadian distributer that may offer the similar great deal that you do?

    What is the duty cycle on this machine at 110 amps when arc welding with 1/8 inch dc 6010 welding wire.
    By Customer Service on May 6, 2013

    Answer:
    Based on the information you provided the Thermal Arc 186 AC/DC TIG Welder System w/Fingertip Control W1006301 would have approx. a 60% duty cycle.. Although it can run 6010 electrode it is not the best choice for this application

    Is the Thermal Arc 186 part of the Tweco line?
    By Customer Service on July 3, 2014

    Answer:
    The Thermal Arc 186 AC/DC TIG Welder System w/Fingertip Conrol W1006301 is part of the Victor, Tweco, Thermal Arc, Thermal Dynamics family. These group was previously known as the Thermadyne family. The corporation feels that the Victor and Tweco names provide more brand recognition and they are slowly converting the equipment names over.. The Thermal Arc 186 has not yet been changed over and we are not sure if or when this change may be made

    By Robert from Central Florida on July 13, 2014
    I am very interested in buying the Thermal Arc 186. I have the Thermal Arc 211i with all the accessories by Tweco and I love it. So I would like to see the Tweco name on the 186. But more important. Why is there no dual voltage with the 186 and will it be added in the near future? Thank you.
    By Customer Service on July 14, 2014

    Answer:
    The Thermal Arc 186 AC/DC TIG Welder System w/Fingertip Control W1006301 is designed to work on 208/230 volt single phase power only.. We are not aware of any changes planned by Thermal Arc to make this unit capable of running on 110/115 volt..Likewise we are not aware of any plans to change the 186 into a Tweco model

    By EHW from Monee Ill. on October 6, 2014
    Can the foot control be used on this machine by disconnecting the finger tip control?
    By Customer Service on October 7, 2014

    Answer:
    Yes.. If you disconnect the finger tip control from the Thermal Arc 186 AC/DC TIG Welder System w/Fingertip Conrol W1006301 you can connect and use the optional footpedal

    By Zach from Charleston, SC on December 4, 2014
    Does the fingertip control also have the option of being used as a remote start button? So that you can set the voltage on the machine and press the control to initiate the high frequency to start pulse at set voltage?
    By Customer Service on December 5, 2014

    Answer:
    The finger tip control that comes with the Thermal Arc 186 AC/DC TIG Welder System w/Fingertip Control W1006301.can be converted to an on off start button. The Tig torch is designed so that you can quickly change over the amperage finger tip control to a remote start on/ off button switch. This button switch is supplied in the 186 package..

    Loving it so far.
    October 7, 2014
    Never tig welded before in my life, but decided to teach myself. So far it's been a nice machine. I was even able to light up at 5 amps DC and weld two single edge razor blades together with out too much trouble in my first week of practicing with it.
