Everlast continues its tradition of innovation and industry firsts with the new multi-process Storm 215c. This new Multi-Process unit features a unique combination of MIG, Stick and Plasma Cutting processes. A substantial duty cycle rating of 35% at the maximum rating of 200A MIG, 160A Stick and 40A plasma, means this unit is a serious fabrication and portable repair tool that fits well in home garage, auto-body outlet, fabrication shop or even service truck. With a lengthy list of frequently requested features in each process, the unit offers no compromise performance and adjustability for the professional welder. The compact size of the unit is definitely a shop space saver and lends itself to portable operations as well. The advanced synergic function of the PowerSet mode allows almost any user to quickly set up and attain near perfect settings without having to consult door charts, or calculator apps, making it perfect for the novice welder or for the pro who is in a hurry to get welding. The PowerSet mode will preset Volts, Amps and other features so that you don't have to go through a lengthy setup process. Of course, it does also allow fine tuning of the main settings of Volts and Amps where applicable if you need to make adjustments for differences in welding position and personal welding styles.
For those interested in portable repair operations, the unit requires just 8500 Surge watts of clean (5% or less THD) 240V power to operate from a generator. (Consult generator manufacturer about THD level prior to purchase of generator to confirm that it meets 5% or less THD.)
PLEASE NOTE: This machine is fitted with a 15A plug. To achieve the maximum performance out of your Everlast Machine please ensure your current breaker and wiring/socket setup at your place of use is sufficient enough to achieve this. For example you may be required to upgrade your breaker to a 32A dedicated circuit to suit, therefore allowing you to achieve your machines full duty cycle. If in doubt please contact your local licensed electrician for more info prior to purchasing and please see terms and conditions/warranty for more information.
Manufactured and compliant with IEC/AS 60974.10, CE Guaranteeing your electrical safety and performance. INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY
Features & Benefits:
Purchase the SM200N or SM3035N gun to weld Aluminum or purchase a .035"/.045" 1 piece drive roll kit to weld aluminum along with a polymer liner for the optional 15 series 10 ft gun.
Weld up to a maximum of 3/16" Multi-pass weld 120V
NOTE: This unit is not designed to weld E6010 electrodes. Use E6011 instead.
Plasma cutting capacity is affected by several factors. Ideal cutting conditions require dry air, new consumables, proper air pressure etc. Quality of cut depends upon consumable orifice size, standoff height, and travel speed. Reduce consumable orifice size for best quality cuts on thin metals. Units are shipped with starter kit of consumables designed for 40 amps cutting range. Minimum cutting gauge is virtually unlimited, but kerf will be too wide if standard cutting tips are used. For best results, use a smaller diameter orifice for lighter gauges.
See notes for generator recommendations.
This unit is NOT designed to be use with E6010. It will result in unstable operation. Use E6011 instead.
When operating on a generator, this unit requires at least 8500 Watts of Surge output rating. Additionally the generator must be rated as providing clean power, which is considered to be 5% or less Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). Operation on generators with more than 5% THD may result in failure of the welder and denial of warranty. Do not operatte on undersized extension cords. The cable size on the unit is sized properly for the welder cable length and meets codes. However, a larger conductor is required the longer the length travels away from source (ie panel box). Please consult local licensed electricians when wiring and connecting this device to your power supply.
The plasma function of this welder is meant to serve as a supportive function to normal welding operations. It is not meant to serve as a stand-alone, primary plasma cutter, nor is it designed for or capable of CNC use. The plasma cutter function is for hand cutting only.
