Miniature and portable welders come in a wide range of sizes and capabilities. Most portable welders are large machines designed for industrial use, equipped with wheels or portable casing for easy mobility.
A miniature welder, on the other hand, may be smaller and handheld. A mini welder is ideal for joining thermoplastics or small spot welding projects.
When searching for miniature and portable welders, consider all the following:
- Look for portable welders on wheels and in mobile casing for industrial machinery.
- Browse welder-generators for a portable power source in addition to welder mobility.
- Look at handheld welders if you want a mini welder or micro welder.

These portable welders are easy to pack away and carry with you, and cases are heavy duty plastic to withstand industrial wear and tear.

If you want to look at portable welding machines that don't require long cords to operate, check out a welder/generator. These welders are typically larger and bulkier than a mini portable welder, but also come with mobility features like wheels and durable casing.
Shop for both miniature and portable weldersA mini welder doesn't offer the same power capabilities as a larger welder equipped with portability features, but miniature welding machines can be a great choice if you need an easy to transport welder for spot welding jobs. Shop for both mini and micro welders if you want a handheld welder for spot welding.
- Consider the uses for your welder before buying a miniature welder or a portable generator/welder. Both types of welder are useful for certain purposes, and you may even want to have both in your stock of machinery depending on what types of welding you do.
