A feature packed stick welder, the GYS GYSMI E163 comes ready to go with a set of welding leads and a carry case.  Pulsed MMA functionality makes vertical welding easier.  A DC welding power source, the GYS E163 can weld all types of electrodes, rutile coated, basic, stainless and cast iron up to 4.0mm.  Weighing just 3.7kg its a very portable unit for mobile welding.



Front panel controls are easy to use and completely sealed to prevent dust ingress.  A digital meter clearly shows welding amperage.




Capable of material thicknesses up to 10mm and duty cycles of of 60% @ 160A possible (6 minutes out of 10 at full power).

This little arc welder also benefits from features seen on more expensive machines:

Arc force GYS


Arc Force:  Instantaneous increase in welding current in difficult welding conditions


GYS Anti sticking


Anti Sticking: Allows easier arc starting and helps prevent rod sticking to the material.


Hot start GYS


Adjustable Hot Start: Makes it easier to arc with any type of metal (Low Hot Start: for thin metal sheets; High Hot Start: for metals that are difficult to weld such as dirty or oxidized metal sheets)



Can be used for TIG welding (TIG lift start) when fitted with a TIG torch with valve (please select from dropdown above if you would like to purchase)

  • The arc is created by touching the metal with the tungsten electrode – avoiding tungsten inclusions and radio electrical disturbances.
  • Machine senses torch touching the workpiece and lowers voltage until the arc is established, raising it for welding.
  • Automatic arc release:  This innovative function allows the operator to finish the weld without creating craters. The time is adjustable and the function is activated by a movement of the torch.
  • Immediate start due to a high no load voltage.  Makes arc starting easier.
  • Constant welding power
  • Very smooth melting of welding rods with DC current
  • Excellent arc stability and good penetration.
  • Suitable for use with generators +/- 15% (Automatic voltage regulation recommended)
  • 2m electrode holder lead and 1.6m work return lead
  • European made (France)
  • Lift TIG capability
  • 2 Year warranty
