AHP Alphatig 200x Tig welder demonstrated & testing
Is the alpha tig 200x a chinese or american welderThis great machine has been made and manufacture in USA and has been in US market for several years now.The official brand company for this machine is AHP Welds.This company has been running in us and has sold thousand of their machine mainly in us and other country such Uk and Canada.Even some of their parts has been made in china but their reputation and the popularity of the brand including the machine it self among with profesional welders around the world is the same level with everlast and maybe with the longivity brand reputation.
Why this tig welder machine is popular same as with other top brand company?the answer is the "low cost but great quality or maybe high quality" welder machine as we have currently now.
The Machine Stick Function
As for the stick function on my visit to the factory for the final changes and production run we had the factory add a anti stick function.What this means in affect is if the electrode sticks to the workpiece the amps will drop to 30 amps regardless of the setting so as to allow easy ( for want of a better word ) No Stick lifting.
This is a really nice feature not only for beginners but for seasoned Welders as well.I personally am really happy with this function.As for the pulse.It may not be something that is used everyday ,however for welding Stainless it can be a great help to get that coloured look we all want to see.So from our point of view it was a necessary addition to the welder.

After Caron has finished welding, he shows how tall the weld is.He shows how flat the 100 amp weld is in comparison - that's just 25 amps different.That's how he figures out his amperage.He uses a piece of scrap metal just like the metal he's going to weld on and tests it, going high and low, and narrowing in on the right amperage for the job.
