The IE60i is the next generation of low heat input TIG welding sets. Following in the footsteps of the famous InterPulse range of power sources, the IE60i uses the latest technology to assist the welder reduce the heat input and energy that is required to perform quality welds on some of the most difficult alloys in use today.

Some of the materials that are being welded daily within the aerospace and related industries with this technology are: CMSX-10, Inconel 738, 713, 625, C263, PK33, MAR-M 247 René 80, René 142, and Titanium without a chamber or trailing gas shield.

The precise electromagnet fields created by the ultra fast power supply control of the arc characteristics, which can be programmed to minimise the Heat Affected Zone and the width of the arc. These systems offer new levels of weld quality and control over the inverter technology.

The benefit of this technique is that increased arc force or penetration is achieved with a lower input current. This allows for improved heat management on critical welds whist still attaining full penetration. Also, when adding filler wire the dilution in the weld pool is reduced with benefits also seen in the final microstructure. This is particularly useful when welding demanding single and directional crystal components.


  • Easy to use four line backlit display.
  • Keyswitch access to programs prevents accidental erasure of data.
  • Set-up pushbutton allows the weld sequence to run without an arc.
  • Sequence start/stop via weld torch switch, foot pedal or remote input
