Part of a new breed of combination machines, the Fabricator allows the use of MIG or self-shielded flux cored wire, stick electrodes, or DC TIG for welding stainless, copper, nickel, bronze or brass allows -- whatever the operator needs and wants.

The Fabricator is designed for light industrial fabrication, mechanical contractors, farm and ranch use, motorsports, maintenance/repair, light construction and training programs.

The machine uses an advanced inverter to optimize arc performance in all three welding modes and reduces spatter, electrode sticking, and LIFT TIG for arc starts without high frequency equipment. It comes with digital meters, a comprehensive set-up chart and quick-change (no tools) polarity connections.

The Fabricator comes with a TWECO Spray Master 250-amp MIG gun, TWECO WeldSkill 200-amp Stick electrode holder and Victor EDGE regulator.
