Unique in design and appearance, the completely new line of IGBT-based welders and plasma cutting systems from EVERLAST Welding Products sets new standards of excellence in the welding industry. By offering one of the most convenient and reliable welder and plasma cutter lines, EVERLAST earns the praise of customers and competitors alike.
Thanks to the new PowerPro 3-in-1 line, which combines a plasma cutter right into the EVERLAST TIG and Stick welding unit, customers can now save even more money. EVERLAST also offers the PowerTig line, packed full of features, ranging from the economical DC Power I-Tig to the powerful and versatile AC/DC 250 EX PowerTig, in the stand-alone welding unit category. EVERLAST further provides the exceptional CC/CV Power I-Mig series, capable of both MIG and Stick welding.
Many EVERLAST customers start welding as enthusiasts, but quickly find that their EVERLAST products serve as an additional source of income. Imagine the immense satisfaction of having an EVERLAST unit, with no extra purchases or expenses, which provides a little extra cash for the things you want or need.
While the majority of competing products are just generic or inferior versions of better quality items, EVERLAST has exceptional standards governing research and development. Thanks to real world testing and improved manufacturing standards, every customer who purchases a new EVERLAST welder or plasma cutter receives the best value available in the welding industry.
EVERLAST further offer a 7-day, money-back guarantee and a standard 5-year warranty. These unparalleled benefits exceed anything from the competition! As a bonus feature, EVERLAST provides low cost standard ground shipping to your door, on any welder or plasma cutter that you buy. (Continental US only) Also, you can depend upon friendly technical support department to address any issue or question at no extra charge to you.
By carefully evaluating these products to make them suitable to the highest standards of the welding industry, EVERLAST has addressed the use of MOSFET technology in the company's machines. The debate over IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) and MOSFET (Metal-Oxide Semi-conductor Field Effect Transistor) technology has been ongoing at the manufacturer level for years. Since EVERLAST incorporates lightweight and powerful inverter technology in its welders and plasma cutters, the company relies upon transistors to power and stabilize the welding arc.
Typically the MOSFET has proven less capable of handling the punishing demands of high heat, high duty cycle welding equipment. While suitable for certain low-end welding applications, MOSFET technology has been known to fail when pushed to its limits. IGBT technology, however, has proved extremely capable of handling the harsh work environments where EVERLAST machines are most common.
Early issues with IGBT technology have been eliminated thanks to modern manufacturing techniques. MOSFET failures are typically linked to design issues, and have been largely abandoned by the mainstream inverter welder industry. Similarly, EVERLAST recognizes the issues with MOSFET and has transitioned most of the product line to IGBT technology.[read more...]
