Weldcote Introduces TIG Striker 200 Full-Featured Welding Machine

April 20, 2021

KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA – April 2021 – Weldcote, a division of Zika Group, introduces its Striker 200 welding inverter for TIG and stick welding. The new, full-featured digital AC/DC welding machine provides great performance and technology at an excellent value.

Weldcote’s TIG Striker 200 adopts the latest pulse width modulation (PWM) technology, as well as insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBT); technologies that provide more precise results.

Weighing 24.7 pounds, the TIG Striker 200 machine is a small, compact, dual voltage (115 volt or 230 volt) inverter unit with digital readouts that automatically identifies the power grid voltage and operates accordingly.

The Striker TIG 200 machine features power factor corrector (PFC), which increases power efficiency, reduces input power requirements, and stabilizes the welding current, maximizing efficiency on extension cords and generators. As a safety precaution, it has a voltage reduction device (VRD) that reduces the voltage across the outputs when idling.

“Our TIG Striker 200 is the third new welding machine that Weldcote has introduced,” said Joe O’Mera, CEO of Weldcote. “This new welding machine is packed with technology and performance at a price that is much lower than any competitive unit on the market.”

Targeted for light industrial, automotive and home use, Weldcote’s TIG Striker 200 has a robust duty cycle, on average 10 percent higher, when compared to competitive units. The duty cycle establishes how long a machine can hold a continuous arc in a 10-minute cycle. The welding machine’s micro control unit (MCU) corrects the arc length and synergizes its operations to optimize the welding experience for the user. The unit also gives users the option for foot control or push-button hand amptrol, to control the current.

For stick welding, a hot start function provides easy ignition of the weld arc, while arc force prevents the electrode from sticking to the workpiece.

The TIG Striker 200 model comes ready to use with a TIG torch with 12′ cable, a 230-volt to 115-volt adaptor, a flow gauge regulator, a gas hose, ground clamp and electrode holder and cables. Optional accessories include a foot control and a thumb-wheel, hand amp control torch.

Weldcote offers a three-year warranty on its TIG Striker 200 welding machine. For more information on Weldcote’s TIG Striker 200 welding machine, visit, contact or 704.739.4115.
