Amico IGBT Inverter 160 Amp Stick welder Review

The Amico 160 Amp Stick Welder is remarkably light weighted. The IGBT Inverter technology allows this welder to provide a precise weld. This stick welder provides with considerably high efficiency of 90% which is not found in other stick welders at this price. The current is capable to be varied from 20 amp lowest to the maximum amperage of 160 amperes. The Amico 160 Amp Stick Welder is affordable and requires a little practice. The welder works adequately and doesn’t matter if the materials are not fully prepared. It has the capability of dual input voltage of 115 volts and 230 volts.

Type of the surfaces Amico 160 Amps is applicable for

This welder is capable of welding various materials like steel and other metals having different types of surface such as smooth or rugged or hard denser surface. Through all such kinds of material and surfaces, this welder provides the best strong weld. It is capable of working with all kinds of electrodes. It also works with the basic and acidic electrode with similar ease. The duty cycle of this welder remains stable even under maximum conditions.

The technology used by Amico 160 Amps

The welders that include Inverter technology are meant to provide smooth arc and strong weld along with being small in size. This welder has a modified control module IGBT which can provide an output of 25.2 volts at 115 volts and 26.4 volts at 230 volts. This module improves the performing capability of the stick welder. The proportion of drench or plunge is comparatively less. The LED display included in this device is an additional feature that allows the user to get every detail about the power and voltage easily. The capacitor of this device stores the extra power which is converted into high voltage, which saves energy. The advantages of this device being efficient, durable and stable at a low cost are due to the inverter technology.

Main Features of Amico 160 Amps

The stability of the arc provided by this welder is remarkably good. It provides a hot start and the weld obtained is not sticky. The amount of penetration that this device can provide is highly recommendable. The device is protected from any kind of overload such as the device receiving voltage over its limit which can result in damage. This welder is undoubtedly easily portable. The duty cycle of this Amico 160 Amp stick welder is 60%. The weight of this welder is 16 pounds and hence it is easy to transport from one place to another. This red-colored welder made of metal and plastic is comfortable to use. It provides a hot arc which is adjustable improving the stability of the arc. The remarkable duty cycle along with providing a perfect weld does not need a long time to cool as the cooling system is present in this welder. There might be better welders than the Amico 160 Amp Stick Welder, but with a guaranteed remark, no welder at this price can compete with the Amico 160 Amp Stick Welder. If there is any fault in the product, the user can easily find it with the LED blinking in that section and hence makes it easier for the user. This device consists of a cooling system that prevents the components from overheating. Any kind of fluctuation in voltage is handled automatically in this welder. Mostly the other stick welders plug into a standard outlet, the problem with that, is that it can give you a decent weld, but not a hot weld.

No mess and advanced protection:

The Amico 160 Amp Stick Welder with IGBT inverter technology can be useful for household repairs and other small welding tasks. Also, the device is protected from the current reaching higher than its handling capacity which can cause a burn or internal damage of the device. All these kinds of protection allow the operator to just worry about the weld and not about how it is being executed. The components of this device are strong and reliable. Most of the stick welders create a mess that takes lots of cleaning, but this welder does not spatter and provides a mess-free weld.


The ground clamp provided with this welder is comparatively thin and so rough use will not be appreciated with this welder. The user needs to use this welder gently as the spring tension is also high. This plastic material welder is surely a lightweight and a good option for beginners. after some period the company suggests upgrading with a heavy-duty product to get consistency with welding. This device is compatible with DC power only so users that have AC power source available can’t use this device.

The components included with this device are:

  • ARC-160 Welding machine.
  • 10 ft. electrode holder cable
  • Work clamp cable
  • Power Adapter
  • 2.5 mm and 3.2 mm welding electrodes
  • Instruction manual

The instruction manual provided with this device allows easy installation of the device and guides the user through any kind of trouble with the welder. Thus this welder is the best choice for professionals as well as beginners at such an affordable price. The users who do not face a problem with the DC power source have this device to provide the best features at an affordable cost and a great welding experience.
