Robust and Powerful

The Buddy™ Arc 400i and 400i XC are heavy duty, fan

cooled, IGBT based inverter controlled power sources

meant for MMA / TIG (scratch-start) welding.

• Inverter controlled - more efficient power usage

• Light weight - improved mobility

• Easy-to-use control panel - quick setup

• Adjustable hot start - easy to strike the electrode,

helps you to avoid starting problems.

• Adjustable arc force - sets the intensity of the arc for

improved weld quality.

• Wide mains voltage tolerance - stable welding controls

• General fabrication

• Railways

• Shipbuilding

• Civil construction

• Pipe workshops

Easy Settings

The simple control panel of the Buddy™ Arc makes it

easy to optimise settings, reducing the time taken for

achieving the best weld characteristics. These units are

equipped with hot start and arc force with the possibility

to adjust parameters during welding. Hot start helps to

avoid starting problems while arc force sets the intensity

of the arc for improved weld quality.

As an option the Buddy™ Arc can be equipped with a

remote control unit.

Energy Efficient

The Buddy™ Arc machines are constructed to maintain a

high power factor and efficiency, thus keeping the energy

cost to a minimum without affecting the weld quality.

Voltage Reduction Device – VRD

In some areas a voltage reduction device, or VRD, is

required. VRD is a safety function that limits the open

circuit voltage from the machine to less than 35V. The

Buddy™ Arc are prepared for VRD and the function can

easily be activated inside the power source.

MMA Welding

A wide current range and powerful welding performance

make the Buddy™ Arc machines suitable for a wide

range of applications and electrode types such as:

- General purpose

- Low-hydrogen

- Stainless steel

- Cellulosic

The BuddyTM Arc 400i XC model has controlled welding

dynamics that provides excellent weld properties for

welding pipe root passes.

TIG Welding

The Buddy™ Arc machines are capable of performing

TIG welding with precise current control. All you need is

an optional TIG-torch with a gas valve, a gas regulator

and a cylinder of gas. You can weld mild steel or

stainless steel material with or without filler material.

Safety and Reliability

The Buddy™ Arc machines conform to the International

Standards that ensure the reliability and safe use of these


These units are equipped with overheating and mains

over/under voltage protection that will temporarily switch off

the machines automatically to prevent any potential

damage that the components might sustain
