The Oxford I-MIG 470 is a 470A, 3 phase step regulated MIG welder made by British welding machine manufacturer Oxford.  Oxford herald this machine as possibly the most powerful compact MIG available.  Ideal for everything from sheet metal work to heavy duty fabrication.

The Oxford I-MIG range are the most heavy duty MIG welding sets in the Oxford range.  Copper wound transformers, rugged switch gear, over rated rectifiers and double fan cooling are all built into a strong 2mm steel chassis.  Preferred by some, a transformer based machine arguably provides very long life spans and great reliability.

Industrial compact MIG welders complete with 4 roll drive.

* Note the input fuse size on single phase models is a result of Oxfords calculations & tests, it is possible to use any of these models on a lower fuse size at lower welding power. It is recommended always using a ‘D’ type circuit breaker to avoid intermittant tripping & in some instances you may experience intermittant tripping if using close to maximum settings. *The min KVA rating quoted is for up to 3/4 power output, to achieve max output we suggest increase KVA by 40%.

Why accept an imported machine when you can buy a top quality British made machine for a similar price?


Please note:  Oxford machines are built to order and may take 7 – 14 working days from order to be built and dispatched.  If you place an order online, one of sales team will be in touch to confirm delivery time scales.  Also note our returns policy for these machines on our terms and conditions page.
