FEATURES
PERFORMANCE
• The Idealarc® DC-600 is a multiprocess DC arc welding power
source that produces outstanding arc characteristics on both
constant voltage and constant current processes. This provides
great welding versatility in a single power source.
• The Idealarc DC-600 is designed for GMAW (MIG), FCAW, and
submerged arc welding processes within the capacity of the
machine, plus the capability of stick, and air carbon arc gouging
up to 3/8” (10mm) diameter. It produces outstanding performance
with a single range continuous control potentiometer.
FEATURES
• 3-position field or factory installed Multi-Process Switch option
allows quick change from electrode positive or negative
semiautomatic/automatic wire feed welding to stick, TIG or air
carbon arc gouging.
• Air carbon arc gouge with up to 3/8" (10mm) diameter carbons.
