    Morning,

    Quick question, does anyone know where these welders are produced?
    I can’t find any factual evidence on the net to state that they are produced in Finland rather than their Indian plant. I do know that they are good machines which ultimately is the main point but I’d like to know if possible.

    Many thanks

    Pass, I have a MinArcMig 170 IIRC - it's a good little machine.

    I have not used one - I have looked at them - they don't have a euro torch on them.

    Most Kemppi stuff I have bought or used has been good.

    It's honestly not a problem. How often do you need to remove the torch from your welder? I have an older minarc 180 and a Euro torch would make it clumsy and less portable.

    I have one.....let me go and check. Mine is a few years old but....made in Finland is on the label which is under the base of the machine.

    Its a very expensive welder....but it's a very good welder. The auto setup is amazing and for the most part is what I have used.

    ^^^ No worries...I bought it as a treat for myself....think I paid about £1k. When it arrived I knew immediately that I'd made the right choice.

    So far I've used the auto setup with mild steel, stainless and mig braze....all have been excellent. Just dial in the material and thickness and away you go.

    Mine definitely prefers 0.8mm wire but that may be down to me not knowing how to set it up.
