Parweld XTM 211DI Multi Process Welding Inverter (MIG, MMA & AC/DC TIG)
The Parweld XTM 211DI is one of the first true multi process welders on the UK market. The machine offers MIG, AC/DC TIG & MMA functions all from one compact machine. 110V/240V input power makes it perfect for on-site welding in the UK where 110V input voltage is stipulated. If you're looking for an all-singing, all dancing, do-it-all machine then look no further.. you've found it. The large high quality colour display screen makes the interface very easy to see from a distance. In addition to this the control interface is incredibly simple and intuitive and makes weld settings simple with little to no process knowledge.
MIG welding - The machine features both manual and fully synergic control which means that you can set your machine the old fashioned way (voltage + wire feed speed) or you can dial in your settings by programming the welder to know the wire diameter, material type & material thickness which will then spit out the perfect settings for a weld that you'll be over the moon with. You can MIG weld mild steel, stainless steel & aluminium with synergic lines built into the machine for all of these materials. In terms of thickness.. a 10MM mild steel weld is possible and down to around 0.9MM on the thinner side. A 15KG reel capacity makes it possible to use this machine in a tough industrial environment without having to constantly change the wire reel. Overall this machine has many useful features, being worth its cost just for the MIG capabilities.. however this machine just keeps getting better as it has AC/DC high frequency TIG functions that you would not usually find on a multi process welder. Only the ESAB Rebel V205 AC/DC & The Miller Multimatic 220 AC/DC (unavailable in the UK) offer this functionality.
TIG welding - AC & DC output allows for TIG welding aluminium, mild steel & stainless steel. Usually a multi process will only offer DC output and even then it will only be a lift TIG arc ignition. The XTM 211DI has high frequency ignition which makes for a nicer arc start and less inclusions at the start of your weld run. You will also find adjustable pulse frequency on the set which makes your welds more aesthetically pleasing whilst inputting less heat into the material, thus preventing distortion. On top of all of this you also get synergic control in the same way you can control the MIG settings, set material thickness, tungsten diameter etc.. and your settings are done for you. Overall the TIG functionality of this machine is very impressive.
Arc welding - Most multi processes will have an arc function so it isn't a huge feature to sing and dance about but I thought it worth mentioning. The arc welding capabilities makes welding very thick material easy. 200 amps of arc welding output can handle a 4MM rod and will weld up to 15MM thick material with ease. Overall a very useful feature to have at your disposal.

Overall, this machine is a perfect solution for those who need a compact, lightweight machine that will do all processes to a very good level. The fact that you only need a single machine for all processes is an extremely attractive and useful feature. Add on to that the fact that the machine is nearly half the price of its closest available competitors and it becomes a no brainer which machine should be your choice.
