X8 MIG Guns

Powerful precision

Ergonomically designed industrial MIG welding guns with great performance


X8 MIG Guns are a powerful combination of ergonomic and technical welding performance for industrial MIG welding. The X8 MIG Guns are available in both gas-cooled and water-cooled models, and feature consumables that are easy to fit and maintain. Their innovative neck technology guarantees precise operation of the wire line and better cooling compared to standard MIG guns.

Designed with superb balance, the X8 MIG Guns reduce wrist loading and welder fatigue. The detachable pistol grip handle provides stability and extra comfort for welding longer welds while ensuring perfect touch of the trigger. An additional remote control is also available for easy adjustment of welding parameters. For dimly lit work conditions, the X8 MIG Guns feature a handy LED work light to aid pre-weld positioning and post-weld visibility.

Benefits

  • Available in both gas-cooled and water-cooled models with interchangeable spare parts
  • High quality consumables that are easy to fit and maintain
  • Improved cooling and gas shield compared to standard MIG guns
  • Excellent arc ignition with the Touch Sense Ignition feature
  • LED work light for illuminating the area near the tip of the pistol
  • Kemppi Gun Connector guarantees a firm connection to the wire feeder and offers enhanced mechanical and electrical properties together with real arc voltage measurement
  • The cable’s ball-and-socket joint balances the welding gun and reduces torque on the welder’s wrist
  • Detachable pistol grip handle improves ergonomics in different welding positions
  • X8 Gun Remote Control is available as an accessory for adjusting welding parameters and managing memory channels
  • Strong gun shield hose material optimizes cable mobility by reducing friction
  • The gas-cooled X8 MIG Gun range features replaceable necks

Excellent welding performance

The X8 MIG Guns are in their own league compared to standard MIG guns. Their innovative neck design and structure enable precise wire line operation, a stable shield gas flow, and better cooling. With 20% lower gas nozzle and 30% lower contact tip temperatures, X8 MIG Gun consumables last longer and stay in better shape. Less costs, better bottom line.

Ergonomics to the max

The welding gun is the welder's most important tool in creating quality welds. With design, mobility and stability, X8 MIG Guns maximize ergonomics. Their innovative design reduces wrist loading and welder fatigue, while the cable's ball-and-socket joint balances the welding gun. Add a perfect touch on the trigger, and welding has never felt better.

Light it up

Just wait until you get your hands on this one. X8 MIG Guns are equipped with an integrated LED work light, which illuminates the area around the welding gun's tip whenever you need it the most. This feature is especially helpful when doing pre-weld positioning or post-weld inspections. Never again will dim lighting ruin your welds.
