    Yes and NO:
    Yes it will do it, with preheat and adding Helium gas.
    No I wouldn't do it for a regular everyday event. The dynasty200DX is really home in Aluminum at 1/8" or 3/16" but it will push it pretty hard for 1/4".

    The rule is .01 in material thickness= 1 amp so 1/4"=.250=250 amps which is over the 200dx's recomendations. For an infrequent event it would be ok.

    Peace,

    literal a figuratively

    KB, there is a big difference between literal meaning and figurative meaning. Of course the duty cycle would prohibit continual use.

    KB,
    would you be willing to post a picture of that? If its not too much
    trouble, thanks in advance. I was wondering the same thing about
    the Dynasty 200DX.

    I just welded some fillets on 1/4" 6061 plate. I did a little preheat and my 200DX did fantastic. Settings were 200 amps, 75 balance, and 180 hz using 100% argon. I used 3/32" 1.5% lanthanated with a small (.020 ish ) flat on the tip. I did not use pulse. Pretty sweet.

    As far as all day long, I don't think so. The duty cycle at 200 amps will get ya before long.
