Representing a major upgrade in TIG technology, BOC Australia is helping the country’s welders take a step into the future with the introduction of the new Smootharc Elite TIG 230 AC/DC.

The new welding machine is a major upgrade in TIG technology and significantly more affordable & energy efficient, with its power saving inverter technology designed for high quality welding tasks.

Only available in Australia at present, the TIG 230 AC/DC has EWM activArcÒ, a powerful TIG arc with high plasma pressure. This highly dynamic regulator system ensures that the energy introduced remains constant when distances change between the weld torch and molten pool.

Nic Bothma, Technical Manager Industrial Products at BOC, commented, “The Smootharc Elite TIG 230 AC/DC has TIG AC, TIG DC and MMA welding capabilities. It is the right machine for every location – construction, assembly, workshop or production site.”

“BOC have been looking towards the future of TIG welding equipment over the years and having energy efficient equipment has benefits on both the environment and our customer’s costs.”

Bothma concluded, “The TIG 230 AC/DC has TIG AC, TIG DC and MMA welding capability, making it a great all-round welding machine. It has a torch that allows all programs, operating modes and up/down functions to be available at the touch of a button. The torch can hold up to 10 pre-programmed JOBs that can be called up via the torch.”

The Smootharc Elite TIG 230 AC/DC package comes complete with a power source, TIG welding torch (gas cooled), workpiece cable, gas hose, regulator and operating manual. Backed by the BOC network, this machine comes with a 3 year warranty on parts and labour.
