Equipment Details

Durability for the Harshest Environments

The Air Vantage 600-I is a powerful multifunction machine that offers up to 600 amps of welding, 20 kW of auxiliary power,and 60 cfm of compressed air in a single package. This 3-in-1 workhorse has been designed to meet the most challenging job site needs and environments. The rugged Air Vantage 600-I can handle a wide array of tasks from heavy-duty carbon arc gouging to pulse welding.

Multifunction Machine

  • Welder - Up to 600 amps of welding current to tackle numerous welding and carbon arc gouging applications
  • Generator - 20 kW of continuous three phase power to run industrial tools such as plasma cutters, pumps, or inverter welders
  • Air Compressor - 60 cfm @ 100 psi (1.7 cmm @ 6.9 bar) of compressed air powered by VMAC®

Multi-Process Welding

  • Select one of five standard process modes including CC-Stick, Downhill Pipe, DC Touch Start TIG®, CV-Wire, or Arc Gouging mode, which maximizes output for up to 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) carbon rods.

Optimal Arc Performance

  • Minimal spatter for stick or pipe welding
  • Enhanced gouging performance prevents the engine from stalling, resulting in smooth material removal
  • Expanded welding capabilities with customized modes for stainless, aluminum, and steel as well as advanced SAW and orbital pipe modes(1)
  • Pulsing capability available to enable better arc control in out-of-position work and can lower heat input for critical welds(1)

Reliable Operations

  • Lab tested, field proven ruggedness and durability
  • Engineered for outdoor use in the harshest environments (IP23 Rated)
  • High quality electrical insulation, stainless steel paneling, and potted PC boards for added protection and durability
  • Manufacturer in an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 facility

Industrial Diesel Engine

  • 4 cylinder, 65.7 HP, turbocharged Deutz® TD2.9L4 diesel engine runs smooth and quiet
  • Standard engine gauges allow you to monitor performance at a glance
  • Tier 3 engine does not require ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel
  • 25 gallon (94.6 liter) fuel tank for longer running time
