Esab Welding & Cutting Products has added a new multipurpose welder in its X-Series line. The MTS 3500i is a multi-process, fourth-generation inverter power source that offers welding capabilities for MIG, TIG or stick welding. The MTS 3500i’s microprocessor control is designed to tune in an excellent welding condition and deliver the very best welding performance available, according to Esab representatives. It supports a wide selection of ferrous and nonferrous alloys in MIG mode using fixed slope and inductance controls. A switch on the back panel provides for selection of primary voltage. Other features include easy starts and re-starts stick mode, adjustable arc force, a “touch-lift” TIG start capability, and an auto fan feature that automatically turns the fan motor on and off as needed for energy savings. The machine operates on single-phase or three-phase power and comes with a three-year warranty.
