Lincoln Electric’s New Sprinter 180Si Offers Advanced TIG Functionality in a Lightweight Package

March 1, 2024
The 180Si is designed with a maximum output of 180 amps to enable stick welding quality.

Lincoln Electric introduced the Sprinter 180Si stick welder at this year’s ARA Show. The unit combined stick welding with advanced TIG functionality, wrapped up in a portable, lightweight package, thanks to the newest inverter technology. 

The 180Si is designed with a maximum output of 180 amps to enable stick welding quality. Operators can weld up to 5/32-inch electrodes (6010/7018) and can even choose a dedicated 6010 mode for cellulosic stick electrodes. 

But the 180Si is more than just a stick welder. It also delivers 200 amps for TIG welding and offers a variety of advanced TIG features: 

·        Pulse mode with options ranging from .1 to 100 pulses per second 

·        A choice of high-frequency or lift-start options at the push of a button 

·        TIG-ready capabilities with an 8-pin connector for foot pedals, hand amptrols and other devices  

 The 180Si is portable and versatile. Weighing in at less than 20 pounds, it goes anywhere easily and the dual-input voltage enables the operator to plug into any common power supply. Once it’s up and running, the simple user interface provides an easy-to-read seven-segment display and push-button controls. And it all packs up neatly in an ergonomically designed case with a handle and shoulder strap that make it easier to carry and move – around the shop or to any location. 

Stick or TIG, in the shop or on the move, the Sprinter 180Si is designed for welders of every kind – home hobbyist, professional, or both. And it’s ready for every type of work – maintenance and repair, farm, light industrial, shipbuilding and more.
