Arcon WeldingA lightweight, 80-pound portable inverter drawn arc stud welder, the Studhorse 1200 and 1200DM, generates 1,200 amps, making it capable of welding full base studs up to 5/8 inch in diameter. The welder can be powered from a 40-amp utility breaker at 480 volts, 3-phase or from a 30-amp time delay fuse. It features infinitely adjustable output current, allowing for a wide range of stud sizes. The Studhorse can easily be moved with the operator as the welding job progresses and connects with a 4×14 AWG power cord to either a utility grid or power source.
