Esab Rebel EMP 205ic AC/DC Multi Process Welder A True All In One Welder

The first-ever portable, all-process machine, complete with MIG, Flux-Cored, Stick, DC TIG, DC Pulse TIG, and now AC TIG capabilities, which means – yes – it TIG welds aluminum. It's a TRUE all-in-one welding system that delivers best-in-class performance in each process in the most portable, durable, go anywhere, weld anything industrial package on the market today.

ESAB® Rebel™  EMP 205ic AC/DC Multi-Process Welder System includes Tweco® Fusion® 180 Velocity™ MIG gun, Heliarc® HW-17 TIG Torch outfit with accessory kit, foot control .035 in (0.9mm) wire Atom Arc® 7018 electrodes, Victor® argon flowmeter regulator, 12.5 ft. (3.8 m) hose return clamp with leads, drive rolls, contact tips, and operator's manual.  


  • True All-Process – excellent performance on MIG, Flux-Cored, STICK (including 6010 electrodes), DC TIG and AC TIG industrial applications.
  • Advanced AC TIG features like High Frequency starts, Frequency Adjustment up to 400 Hz, Expanded Balance & Offset Control and Dual Current. DC TIG also offers a Pulse Mode to 500 PPS and dual current.
  • sMIG Technology - exclusive sMIG (“smart MIG”) feature continuously learns and adapts to the operator’s welding technique to provide a stable arc and superior, repeatable welds; increases productivity for the experienced welder, and reduces training time for novice welders.
  • Unmatched Portability and Durability – weighing in at only 49 lbs. (22 kg), Rebel™ EMP 205ic AC/DC with 5 handle roll cage can tackle any job around the shop or out at the job site.

Esab Rebel 205ic AC DC Screen

Yes, It TIG Welds Aluminum – with Full Function Features.

Fixed or limited settings won’t cut it in your world. It’s why we built Rebel EMP 205ic AC/DC for welders who want full control over the arc for unmatched performance. That means you get LiftTIG and high frequency (HF) start, AC wave balance (60%–90%), AC frequency (25–400 Hz), pulsed (DC) (1–500 pps), and amplitude offset – the next level in AC TIG adjustment.

Esab Rebel Functions

Whether you've been welding for two years or 20, Rebel can make your job easier with ESAB’s groundbreaking feature: sMIG (smartMIG). For hobbyists, there's basic mode, which makes setup simple. And for veterans, the exclusive, built-in arc control that constantly monitors your weld and adapts for superior, repeatable welds will make you a believer in the power of a Rebel.

Large display screen and higher pixel density to provide a more clear view of the TFT screen than other light industrial welders; loaded with exclusive features: on-demand availability of the user's manual, listing of spare parts - all in multiple languages. Clearly displays welding amps, wire feed speed and volts.
