Lincoln Electric’s new Square Wave® TIG 200 welder has won a Global Media Award at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) trade show in Las Vegas.

For the sixth year, a panel of top automotive journalists from 15 countries throughout Asia, Europe, South Africa, and South America served on the SEMA Global Media Awards (GMA) panel. SEMA introduced the Global Media Award program in 2004 to highlight the wide appeal of specialty-equipment products that are on display at the SEMA Show to enthusiasts on every continent.

The new Square Wave TIG 200 welding machine from Lincoln Electric offers a multi-process TIG and stick welding experience for craftsmen, small shop fabricators, makers, motorsports enthusiasts, and hobbyists. Users can perform AC TIG welding on aluminum and DC TIG welding on steel, stainless, and chrome-moly when precision and bead appearance are important. Users can also switch to stick welding when working with thicker materials or welding outdoors.

The Square Wave TIG 200 combines an easy-to-use interface for fast setup with built-in advanced features. A pulsed TIG feature provides a drumbeat-like rhythm for filler metal deposition, making you a better welder, faster. AC frequency control allows users to adjust the machine for a wider or more narrow arc profile when TIG welding on aluminum. Adjustable AC balance provides more cleaning action on aged aluminum and helps maximize penetration on thicker aluminum materials.
