We have expanded our product range with Sigma Weld Pro Series , Fully digital , modular , synergic, pulsed and programmable high end welding inverters for AC DC TIG, MIG / MAG, and Pulsed MIG applications. With this range anyone can WeldLikeAPro, having great control and easy to use 7 inch graphical interface. SigmaWeld Pro Series we are able to help with the Critical and Super Critical welding of different materials. These equipments range from basic synergic to fully programmable pulsed, double pulsed and special programs. Each equipment comes with an arc stabilizer function inbuilt, which means even if the welder (a relatively new one) varies the stick out distance during welding, the arc length remains same, the penetration remains same and ensures spatter free working. Further, SigmaWeld Accelerated Tig (SWAT) is another fantastic addition to our commitment in making tig faster. This equipment helps weld square butt, single pass welding of up to 10mm thick stainless steel, titanium and other alloys. Making welding faster, better and error free.
