MagicWave 1700 AC/DC TIG Inverter


The MagicWave 1700 is a fully digitally controlled TIG AC/DC power source with ActiveWave technology, and is characterised by the softest possible yet highly stable arc. It has an output of 170 A, is both light and robust and self-explanatory in operation. The power source is also ideally suited to portable use in chemical, container, machine and plant construction, installation firms, metal construction, maintenance and repair companies, and for pipeline construction.

  • 170 A at 15 kg, and robust
  • Compact & ideal for construction sites
  • Welds low-alloy and high-alloy steels, aluminium and non-ferrous metals

Automatic gas post-flow time (welding current-dependent)
The ideal post-flow time is calculated automatically so that electrode and weld pool do not oxidise
Automatic tungsten balling
Brings enormous time savings - simply clamp the sharpened electrode, pre-select cap diameter, the arc automatically forms the correct cap size
for mobile use, including construction sites
Non-contact ignition (HF)
For perfect arc ignition with high-voltage pulse, even for very long hosepacks
Reversed polarity ignition
Improves the ignition of the TIG direct current arc
Touchdown ignition
For ignition with no high-voltage pulses in sensitive applications
