The Alpha TIG 200X is a quality welding
machine that combines high performance levels and the functions of a
professional machine with an affordable price. This is one of a few machines
that can be easily used by amateurs, part time welders and professionals.
Features and Specs
The 200X is a TIG welder that allows for welding
of thin materials. Aluminum and steel are handled with ease by this model from
AHP. The company improved the machine, giving it the newest inverter technology
and pulse width modulation. As a result, users can work on projects where
accuracy is important and weld on thin sheets. The Alpha TIG 200X also uses
IGBT technology to convert power to high voltage, store it in a bank and then
use for different processes. The machine provides better control of functional
parameters than other types of machines.
All peripherals are compatible, and you will get everything you need
straight out of the box.
The Alpha TIG 200X is relatively lightweight (only
28 lbs), so you can carry it around with ease. The machine also has a sturdy
and flexible handle for convenience and better mobility. The main advantage of the
200X is that all its features are implemented in a user-friendly way. Instead
of having standard button controls, its control panel is designed with rows and
knobs. The bottom row allows you to control settings like Post Flow, Pulse Time
and Pulse Frequently, while the top row is responsible for amperage settings. Every
button is labeled, you will not confuse one function for another. Other
important features include a range of 10-200 amps, pulse frequency range of
0.5-5, 30 to 70 percent, AC balance and 60% duty cycle.
Used to handle all kinds of projects
The Alpha TIG 200X is often used for aluminum
or stainless steel, but it is also efficient against many other types of
materials. The best part is that it is extremely efficient against thinner
materials. Many welders fail here; when it comes to something thin, the results
sometimes seem pretty rushed. The Alpha TIG 200X delivers a precise and

What to choose: T2 or 4T?
The Alpha TIG 200X offers both T2 and 4T
models for you to choose from. Just set the welder in 4T mode and click the
control button once to start the welding process. Then click one more time to
turn the torch off. In T2 mode, you should click and hold the button to keep
the torch running. This is one of a few machines that combine two modes;
otherwise you will need two different welding machines.
Simple to use and operate
The simplicity of the Alpha TIG 200X allows
everyone to deliver professional welds on 3/8 inches steel and ¼ inches
aluminum ranges. You may not use the pulse feature every time you use the
machine, but it is one of those features that you will definitely need while
welding stainless steel. The portability and versatility of the Alpha 200X
are features that set it apart from some of its competitors.
In addition to impressive durability and advanced
performance, it is equipped with the necessary control features. The welder has
a foot pedal that provides complete control over it. The pedal frees your hands
and ensures safety. There is also a switch that works as an additional trigger.
The Alpha has a display that shows the
amperage the machine is currently on. However, there is a little quirk. Display only shows the starting amperage, so
if you change amp knob, the display will not show it until you switch it to 2T.
It also does not show the ending amperage. However, you get used to it quickly.
The 200X is a great welder for a great price,
a good choice both for those who have just started welding and those who have
been doing it for years. The equipped torch is a type 17, but you can also
change it to the type 17, 18 or 26. These are the smallest torches, they are
often used for light work. For an inverter with TIG torch and HF mechanism so
that users never struggle, look no further than Alpha TIG 200X. It is one of
the best welders on the market in its category.
Who is It Suitable For?
