Welders are an essential part of our American infrastructure. Without them, we would have no skyscrapers, pipelines, or bridges. Regardless of the skill level of these welders, they all have one thing in common. They all need a welder! The Lincoln Electric Power MIG 210 MP is bridging the gap across a wide array of the welders’ skill levels and processes.
There is no doubt that you can’t replace experience, know-how and OJT (On the Job Training) with a piece of equipment, hence I’m not about to make that argument. At the same time, technology is definitely playing a role in ramping up the abilities of welders (persons) faster than before. Also, the ability to handle different process welds with less machinery and more efficient equipment is a product of new technologies in welders such as the Lincoln Electric multi process welder.
Lincoln Electric Multi Process Welder
With a wide range of uses and processes, the Lincoln Electric Power MIG 210 MP is aimed at the hobbyist, teacher or small fab-shop. This same machine can weld with stick, MIG, TIG and even flux-core. A novice can start with this machine, but it can also grow with them as they advance in their experience and abilities.
Dual voltage inputs (120V or 230V) provide the user versatility, so they can take it everywhere and plug in anywhere (almost). The Lincoln Electric Power Mig 210 only weighs 40lbs., even further enhancing the versatility and portability. The sheet-metal construction ensures durability for years to come. Most notable is the 210 Amps at the welders fingertips. This is sufficient power to tackle some pretty significant jobs; you can MIG up to 5/16 inch mild or stainless steel.
A large color display guides the user through a simple setup process to ensure a successful weld. In addition, the push and turn digital controls add to the already intuitive and easy startup. Also accessible from the color display are the advanced options and settings, so you can customize your parameters. Optional add-ons are available to expand the capabilities of the 210 MP. The Aluminum One-Pak adds a spool gun to enable feeding aluminum wire, and the TIG One-Pak adds the torch and foot adapter.
