At the 2015 SEMA Show, ESAB was kind/nice/brave enough to let show goers try their new compact, multi-process welder, the Rebel EMP 215ic.  It can do TIG, MIG, and stick.  I was way out of practice but gave the aluminum spool on gun MIG and TIG a try – I got decent results and I was definitely the weakest link.

When connected to 230V primary, the unit provides a MIG output of 20 to 220 amps, a stick output of 30 to 160 amps and a TIG output of 5 to 240 amps. When connected to 120V primary, the unit provides a MIG output of 15 to 130 amps, a stick output of 5 to 110 amps and a TIG output of 5 to 140 amps.  It weighs about 40 lbs and takes 10 lb wire spools or 2lb spools for Al on the gun.

Pricing is still to be determined.
