Just flip a switch, set your amperage and weld...It's that simple. This machine will weld Steel, Stainless Steel, Moly, Ferrous,
An ARC welder is a necessity in any industrial shop or home workshop. There are welding jobs that simply require ARC or SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding). Stick welding is cheap and effective. Fill large gaps, holes, weld cast iron and weld extra thick steel with stick. With Arc welding, no shielding gas is required. In many ways stick arc welding is like MIG except there is no wire feed, you have to do that manually.
Compared to other 3in1 Plasma/Tig/Stick combo units on market, CT520D has following unique features:
Stick Welding Aluminum feature is available for Lotos CT520D (Patent Pending).
More stable arc on cutting and welding by Lotos torches (Patent Pending).

Since 2000 Lotos introduced inverter technology in welding and cutting machines. Lotos' latest high frequency inverter technology utilizes MOSFET and IGBT along to deliver a far more constant, concentrated and precise current to the cutting surface. This technology has been substantially reduced in size and weight of Inverter Plasma Cutters. It helps you to easily achieve smooth, clean cuts of wide range of surfaces and material (e.g. stainless steel, alloy steel, brass, aluminum and other conductive material) with minimal heat input and without distortion of metal. Lotos plasma cutters are designed especially for those some business and DIY (do-it-yourself) users, while fully accommodating the demands of professional operators.
The production process for Lotos products is among the most stringent in the world and meets or exceeds some of the industry's most rigid standards. Our studies show that it is in fact among one of the best in the industry and is unrivaled by other would-be competitors. The quality of each of the integrated components is constantly monitored during the course of production. Only components and materials that meet the highest industry standards for quality are permitted to be incorporated into LOTOS products. Finally, upon conclusion of production, each unit is put through a newly devised, far more rigorous 30 point testing and quality inspection routine. This process is critical to ensuring a product that is not only safe, but reliable in both performance and durability.
Cut at 12 Times the Speed of Sound
Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals using a plasma torch. In this process, an inert gas (compressed air) is blown at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time an electrical arc is formed through that gas from the nozzle to the surface that is being cut, turning some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently fast to blow molten metal away from the cut. The plasma, which is maintained between the work-piece and electrode, travels at over 9000 MILES PER HOUR (15,000 km/Handle). That’s over twelve times the speed of sound.
Advantage of Plasma vs. Oxy-Fuel Torch
Plasma does not use expensive, hazardous gases, only compressed air. It imparts much less heat into the piece being cut, eliminating warping. It does not require ignition. It leaves little to no slag to clean up or grind off. The cost per cutting hour can be less than oxy-fuel since there is no gas cost. It is also much quicker and easier. So, you cut better, faster and inexpensively.
Skill and Training
There is not a lot of skill or training required to operate a plasma cutter. The torch should remain at a 90-degree angle. With the LOTOS CT520D you can keep a standoff or drag the tip of the torch on the metal.

Recent Feedback for Lotos Plasma Cutter, Tig Stick Welders.
"While working in Kandahar, Afghanistan for DND I discovered an amazing
piece of equipment. A group of British Soldiers were repairing an
Armored Troop Transport with a Lotos 3 in 1 TIG/STICK/PLASMA. I
never heard of Lotos Technology or knew anything about their products
until then. I was amazed with the power and versatility of this little
machine. Upon my return to Canada I quickly purchase one for my own
use. Shortly after my machine arrived I purchased one for a friend.
Before long I had other people asking about them and helped with their
purchases. I was so impressed with the quality of this machine I became
the Canadian Dealer/Distributor for Lotos Technology products. What I
love about running "Lotos Welders Canada", my new business, is to hear
so many positive things from my satisfied customers. I strive to
achieve customer satisfaction and I stand behind the quality products
that Lotos Technology provides". from Anthony
"Giving the highest rating to this product - it should and can be in every home shop or garage.
Phone help is available in 10 minutes, very knowledgeable tech support.
The machine itself is an easy to learn high-tech wonder, but easily serviceable.
Thanks Lotos! Highly recommend for beginners and pros alike." from VPN.
"Received my LTPDC2000 welder and had contacted customer service with
some questions I had about the setup and capability of this particular
welder. I was able to have someone contact me right away and they were
very helpful in answering all the questions I had, which the LTPDC2000
2011 model, has the capability of welding just about any kind of metal,
including, stick welding Aluminum and as well tig welding Titanium, which I didn't know that. For
the money don't think there is a welder out there that can't compete
for the capability and price. I did a lot of searching on the internet
and from what I saw this welder was one of the top 10 Tig welders to
purchase from a review online. Then when I compared prices, there was
no question I had to get a Lotos welder. I was very pleased that in the
future if I have any questions that there will be always someone there
to help me out. Would recommend this welder to anyone." by SD.
"I had been toying with the idea of a plasma cutter with the heightened
Oxy fuel costs. I also have wanted to further my capabilities with Tig
welding. After looking at many different brands of machines. Prices
ranged from $300 to $3000 with basic to confusing features. I decided
this LTPDC2000 was the welder that would fill my current needs, IGBT
w/pilot arc, all torches & foot pedal 3yr warranty! However with the
low selling price I still wasn't convinced of quality and service. I
had questions, I contacted the seller with the first email and he
replied straightaway as he did several more times. Ok so I placed my
order from NY and to my surprise my machine was here 5 days later. I
opened the package and was very pleased, I am not sure what I expected
to find but what I did find was a well thought out complete kit, after
some minor assembly of the air regulator it was up and
running. As another reviewer said I also would like to update my review
after some time, I think it would only get better though! I also
received another shipment of tungsten's from them with the same
attention to my order. The LTPDC2000 machine is a great choice for
anyone looking at a 3-in1 welder unit. I HIGHLY recommend this supplier
as they are committed to customer service before and after the sale!"
"The Lotos LTPDC2000 worked great right out of the box. I especially like
the pilot arc feature of the plasma cutter. I bought it to replace
rusty floors in a 1940 Ford from Michigan. Without the pilot arc, it
would be difficult to keep the arc going in rusted metal.
I found out that my TIG welding skills need more work, but that is not the fault of the machine.
stick welding feature is also handy to have in one machine. I had been
switching back and forth between a Lincoln stick welder and a MIG welder
on prior projects.
I recommend buying a roll around cart to mount it on.
included instructions are useless. Fortunately, lots of info and video
from manufacture website is available online. All in all, one of my
better purchases." Hotrod builder
