TECHNICAL INFORMATION
1. TECHNICAL INFORMATION
1.1 GENERAL EXPLANATIONS
Monostick 160i is an inverter type portable, mono-phase DC MMA welding machine designed to weld stick
electrodes up to 4 mm. This unit can also be used as a DC TIG* power source for touch-start applications.
Even though the machine is mono-phase, due to the inverter technology it provides stable arc and good restriking performance, also the electric consumption is approximately 10% less than the silicon controlled
rectifier equipments and 25% less than the magnetically controlled equipments.
Monostick 160i proved well that it can work between 160 to 240 V 50/60 Hz line voltages. Therefore this
machine is quite immune to mains voltage fluctuations and perfectly welds with generator-sets.
Monostick 160i can also be used with long welding cables up to 25 mt.
The machine is fan cooled and thermally protected against over heating.

2.2 INSTALLATION AND WORKING RECOMMENDATIONS
• DO NOT USE THE MACHINE WITH LONG
ELECTRIC CABLES AT CONSTRUCTION
SITES! Do not forget that electric cable carries
220V/50 Hz and these cables are not suitable to
work in harsh environments, they can easily wear
and tear which may lead to electric leakage to the
metals where welders may be working on.
ELECTRIK SHOCK CAN KILL or cause people to
FALL DOWN from dangerously high places like
scaffolding (iskele). Instead, ALWAYS use long
WELDING CABLES for safety reasons.
• For a better performance, keep the machine at
least 20 cm away from the surrounding objects.
Beware of excessive heat, dust and humidity
around the machine. Try not to operate the
machine under direct sunlight. Machines should
be operated on lower capacities when ambient
air temperature exceeds 40ºC.
• Avoid welding at outdoors where it is windy and
rainy, if this is a must, protect the welding area with
curtains, mobile screens or tents.
• Use suitable welding fume extraction systems.
Use breathing apparatus if there is a risk of inhaling
in confined places.
• Respect the duty cycles given at the data plate.
Exceeding the duty cycles frequently can damage
the machine and this would void the warranty.
• Do not use stronger fuses than those stated on the
data plate.
• Ensure that the earth clamp is tightly connected as
close as possible to the welding location. Do not let
welding current flow through any media other than
welding cables; e.g. over the machine itself, gas
tubes, chains, ball bearings, etc.
2.3 CONNECTIONS FOR MMA WELDING
Before plugging your machine to the
electrical line, check if the correct
voltage exists.
Ÿ According to the polarity of the electrode to be used,
insert welding cables into the appropriate socket (5-6)
and tighten them by turning clock-wise.
Ÿ Connect the earth clamp tightly to the workpiece
as close as possible to the welding area.
While inserting the plug into the
socket, pay attention that main
switch is positioned to “OFF” “0”.
Ÿ Adjust the desired current and the machine is ready
to weld.
Ÿ Below table is given as a reference for current
adjustment of mild steel electrodes, please refer to
the electrode manufacturer's recommendations.

MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
3. MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
Strictly follow the instructions contained in safety rules while servicing the
machine.
Before removing any screw on the machine for maintenance, power
supply must be disconnected from the electric lines and enough time
should be allowed for capacitor discharging.
3.1 PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
ONCE IN EVERY 3 MONTHS
Clean the labels on the
machine, replace the worn
out labels.
Repair or replace the worn
out welding cables.
Clean and tighten the weld
terminals.
Check isolation of the
electrode holder, earth
clamp and their cables.
ONCE IN EVERY 6 MONTHS
Open the covers of the
machine and clean with
dry air.
OR
NOTE: The above recommended maintenence periods are indicative, these may vary according to the
work shop conditions.
3.2 NONPERIODIC MAINTENANCE
Contact tip and nozzle on the torch have to be cleaned regularly and
changed if required. Contact tips must be in good condition, longer tips
generally give better results.
3.3 TROUBLESHOOTING
Ÿ If the Thermal Protection LED (3) lights up while cooling fan is working and the machine doesn't weld; machine
maybe overheated and stopped for auto protection due to overheat. Hot weather or working in high current
values for long time may cause this. Let the machine on for a while in order to cool down itself with the cooling
fan. After it cools enough, Thermal Protection LED (3) fades away and the machine can weld.
Ÿ When the Power LED (2) is lighting, cooling fan is working but the machine does not weld; turn off the machine
for 1 minute then turn it on again and try to weld. If it still doesn't weld, contact to your authorized technical
service.
