i5 | Smart Welder
Pro Spot's i5 SMART Spot Welder features a new medium frequency trans-gun capable of delivering 14,500A with 1,243 lbs (565 daN) of electrode force. The i5 is designed to handle all new ultra high strength steels including Boron, etc. The operator can choose between two different modes AUTO and MANUAL for the two-sided spot welding.Locate a Distributor ›
Based on the thickness and resistance feedback information, the i5 automatically delivers the correct weld power every time regardless of metal type, thickness or corrosion protection between the metals.
Double-Acting Spot Gun
Pro Spot’s signature Spot Gun features double-acting cylinder, wide-spreading, self-aligning electrodes.
Water Cooled Weld Arms
The i5 features a 5 gal. (20L) radiator looped cooling system all the way to the weld caps.
C to X Adapter
The X-type design is used on certain applications where the C-type arms cannot reach.
The i5 comes with an all new interface that is intuitive and easy to read thanks to the high resolution full color display. Powered by software designed by professional programmers, engineers and welders.
Cabinet and Storage
The i5 comes with ample storage. The drawer under the front panel can be used to store smaller accessories while larger accessories, such as weld arms and cables, can be stored underneath for easy accessibility.
Quickly change between 2-sided and 1-sided welding. The i5 comes with several Single-Sided programs and accessories.
Auto Weld Back to top
At the press of a button, the i5 measures the thickness of the metals automatically using the latest optical technology.
The i5 senses the metals to be welded from a pre-delivered current to determine the type of metal.

Double Acting Gun Back to top
One of the most important features of the spot gun is its "double-acting" ability. Unlike any other trans-gun on the market, the i5 can spread the electrodes wide open with the push of a button without the operator ever having to remove his or her hands from their original positions. That not only saves time, but also assures that the operator doesn’t to have to alter their holding position in order to loosen and move the weld arm manually only to then re-tighten.
Full Color Touch Screen Interface Back to top
High contrast, full color touch screen display featuring over 3,000 OEM screens
(with weld data and repair recommendations) from several manufactures.
Water Cooled Weld Arms Back to top
The coolant circulates from the radiator all the way to the tips in the liquid cooled weld arms.

A Perfect Fit
The all new C2X Adapter was completely redesigned to weld with full force in Auto Weld Mode, the industry's first. There is no need to switch back and forth between programs. Put the new C2X Arm on the i5 and start welding.
Simple and Strong
No assembly needed. No cables needed. No more electrode changes needed. The current is transferred via a pivoting copper conductor which also allows for the buildup of electrode force.
The X-type design is used on certain applications where the C-type arms cannot reach. 90% of all welding needs can be done with a C-type arm, but for some radiator support and truck bed pinch welds, the X-adapter is priceless. This invention from Pro Spot now makes it possible to weld where you never could before!
Cabinet and Storage Back to top
The i5's screen housing can swivel a full 270°. Even though we've gone digital, the i5 still has a physical power switch and pressure gauge for convenience.
In the rear of the i5 you can locate the cooling fans, coolant tank cap and level indicator, plus the power cord and air inlet. This is also where the overhead boom rests.
A hidden drawer has been installed to place everyday items that a welder might need to keep at hand such as extra tips, or single sided welding bits.
The i5 has tool racks installed on both sides and places for all of the extension arms that come standard with the machine. There are also upper and lower trays to lay tools on within reach.
Quick Single Sided Attachment Available Back to top
The i5 is available with Single-Sided welding systems. Quick change between 2-sided
and 1-sided welding. i5 is pre-programmed with 60 Single-Sided programs.
