Development of A Low Cost Arc Welding Machine

A low cost arc welding machine capable of joining different thickness of metals was developed. The design of this arc welding machine was motivated by having a low welding machine that is portable, to complement the existing Lincoln welding machine used for welding, providing an economical means of performing welding operations. The machine provides a low cost solution for welding operations in joining of metals but is not capable of giving the acquisition of commercially available engine driven machine. The operation of the machine is satisfactory since it is always ready for operation at any given time and place, if there is electricity, as it is portable.
