The Paton ProMIG 160 welder inverter is designed for semi-automatic MIG/MAG welding with shielding gases and protective mixtures, manual arc MMA welding and argon shielded TIG welding with direct current.


The design of the ProMIG 160 15-2 model (15 kilogram spool, also capable of handling a 5 kilogram spool – 2 roll feeder) provides some of the best protection against external influences on the market. This model’s rated current of 160A at a duty cycle of 70% is a result that allows intensive welding of 6 mm materials without the risk of overheating. The power source can be separated from the welding wire feed mechanism for ease of use and safety. A characteristic feature of PATON™ Professional Series semi-automatic machines is the high-quality sealed metallic wire feeder, as well as the existing KZ-2 “EURO” type connector, which has become a standard worldwide, allowing the user to change the handle at will in the future.


In a completely electronic system, the control system has absolutely all the resources of the source, within the limits of its full power and regardless of what method is used. The device of “Professional” series is designed for industrial use, for the most demanding users.


All PATON MIG/MAG welding machines are adapted for welding with self-source wire. Such welding, as opposed to the traditional MIG/MAG welding process, is carried out without shielding gas – however, it requires a special welding wire. The wire produces its own shielding, which helps to protect the welding arc. Self-shielded wire suitable for PATON welding machines can be purchased here – 5 kg spools of wire will fit all wire feeders.



Paton MIG/MAG welders of the Standard and PRO series have the possibility of brazing thanks to the function of changing the inductance in three stages. The inductance control enables to optimize the characteristics of the arc depending on the thickness of the component to be welded. This function is necessary to change the speed of the current flow when changing the arc voltage. The thinner the element to be welded with MIG/MAG, the higher the inductance should be (soft arc – less fusion), for thicker elements the opposite (hard arc – more fusion).



– PULSE in TIG welding – full control of heat entering the material – a great feature for welding stainless steel and acid-resistant steel,

– Pulses in MMA – easier transfer of material from electrode to weld pool, better quality of welded joint,



  • duty cycle – PRO series MIG/MAG welders have a 70% duty cycle, while the Standard series has a 45% cycle at the same welding current. In addition, the PRO series welders achieve a continuous duty cycle at a higher welding current than the Standard series welders.
  • Wire Feeder – The PRO Series has a separate wire feeder that handles spools from 15 to 18 kilos. The feeder can be separated from the source for convenience in welding other methods – such as MMA or TIG DC. The PRO Series also has 2 roll or 4 roll wire feeder versions. In the MIG/MAG Standard Series, the wire feeder is built into the welder, only handles spools up to 5 kilos and always has two rolls.
