BUILT FOR HARSH WORK AREAS

At Mirabel Industrial Welding Equipment, we strive to manufacture the most dependable, long lasting welding power supplies on the market.  Our Workhorse, Ironhorse, and Studhorse welders are specifically designed to excel in the harshest and most corrosive work environments, including mines, shipyards, oil platforms, light rail and subway, and heavy construction sites, just to name a few.

BUILT TO LAST A LIFETIME

The Workhorse is based on the technology used in the first ever inverter welder, now known as PowCon.  There are many PowCon welders still in operation, some of which are over 40 years old.  You can expect your Workhorse to last a lifetime, with few (if any) repairs.  To back that statement up, every Workhorse, Ironhorse and Studhorse we manufacture carries our industry-leading 5-year warranty.

NEVER OBSOLETE

To further ensure that our welders will last a lifetime, we make sure all of our components are backward compatible to the first Workhorse manufactured.  This means your Workhorse will never become obsolete, and parts will always be available for repairs.

LOWEST COST OF OWNERSHIP

While we strive to make the Workhorse as durable as possible, repairs may be necessary at some point.  We do our best to keep your repair costs as low as possible.  For example, other manufacturers cover their circuit boards with heavy epoxy, making them impossible to repair, and then charge a hefty price for a replacement.  Instead, we use a simple acrylic conformal coat, making our boards fully repairable.  In the event that a board does need to be replaced, they are reasonably priced.  With long lifespans and inexpensive repairs, the Workhorse will have the lowest cost of ownership of any welder on the market.

MADE IN THE USA

Every welding power supply we manufacture is hand-built from start to finish at our plant in Salisbury, Maryland.  While some of our well-known competitors only assemble their products in the US from foreign components and assemblies, we build many of our own components, circuit boards, and sub-assemblies in-house.  For the components we do not manufacture ourselves, we use as many American-made products as possible, with the priority on quality and dependability rather than price.  When American-made products are not available or do not meet our quality standards, we still support the US economy by purchasing imported components through American distributors.
