Titanium 200 Welder Review – Is it junk?
Let’s get right into it with this Titanium 200 welder review — you’ve probably seen this welder for sale at Harbor Freight and thought “is it junk”? We’re going to dig into that question throughout this review, particularly because most items at Harbor Freight can be known to have shorter lifespans.
The Titanium 200 is a multi-process welder – meaning it can do MIG, TIG, Stick, and Flux-core welding techniques all within one machine. If you’re someone who does a variety of jobs and works with a variety of metals such as aluminum and stainless steel or sheet metal vs thick metal, consider this to be an “all in one” machine.
With that said, this machine weights only 24 lbs, which is extremely light. Generally speaking multi-process welders will run anywhere from 40 – 80 lbs. The voltage input is 120 v and 140 v which means you have flexibility on where you can use this.

Are the components well built?
Power supply is an important part of any welder, because it will dictate the consistency of the power and thus impact the consistency and variability of the weld. The Titanium 200 welder works with AC power, and has a built-in inverter to convert to DC power utilizing a rectifier.
It supports dual voltage, which enables flexibility and adaptability. Generally speaking, you’ll find 120 volt plugs commonly at homes and businesses – this means your machine is very likely to work just about anywhere you can carry it.
Inductance control is what is used to control a single arc cycle. The higher the inductance level, the higher longer a single cycle is. A lower inductance level increases the frequency of the arc cycle which can be helpful in cases where narrow beads are required, such as sheet metal jobs.
Sometimes multi-process welders come with a fixed inductance control, which means you’re stuck with whatever the manufacturer determines. However, as covered at the time of this Titanium 200 welder review, it includes a variable control that allows you to determine your preferred setting on an as needed basis.
