Hello Vlad and other Orion users!
My name is Bryce Bytheway, and I’m a consultant with Orion Welders.
Both welders that you are considering are excellent options, and
which welder you choose would really depend upon what type of work
you will be doing. The most important thing to consider would be
precision; the Orion 200i2 is by far the most precise Pulse Arc
Welder on the market and is also suitedfor high volume work. It also
has a much newer interface, is faster, and takes up less space on
your bench. The 200i2 does have a higher learning curve than the
150i, but the results are much better.
The Orion 150i is also a fantastic unit and has been one of my
favorites for years. Most jewelers are perfectly happy with the 150i
as it does performquite well. However, please be aware that the
Orion 150i has recently beendiscontinued by the company and will no
longer be made. If this is the unit you would like to go with, we do
have a handful of refurbished units in stock that we can sell at a
Feel free to call up Orion’s sales team at 877-786-9353 with any
