Customizable TIG torches from FroniusClick image to enlargeFronius’ welding torches for manual Tungsten Inert Gas welding (TIG) can be customized to suit the welder’s personal preferences as well as the welding task at hand. Their modular design offers a range of sustainable and cost-effective options.

Different requirements – one welding torch

Large or small handle? One control to set the amperage or an additional JobMaster display that can be used to access the pre-programmed settings? Different gas nozzles, different torch angles. “The perfect” TIG welding torch varies from application to application and every welder has their own preference. The modular design of the new TIG welding torches from Fronius allows you to cover all of these requirements without having to replace the entire torch.

The hosepack for manual TIG devices fits every torch body, which can likewise be individually adapted as well. There are different torch body lengths and angles to handle anything the application demands. Changing the torch body is easy and no tools are required with the Multilock System: the torch body is loosened from the hosepack by pressing and turning, and is secured by attaching and turning. For both gas-cooled and water-cooled systems with the torch empty function, it is even possible to safely change the torch body whilst the hosepack is still connected.

Different control options and ease of use

The ergonomic handles of the new TIG welding torches are available with three different interchangeable control elements: an Up-Down rocker switch, JobMaster display or rotatable potentiometer. When developing the new torches, a large amount of importance was also placed on ease of use: the handle is non-slip and contains soft components to take as much strain out of your work as possible. A ball joint between the hose and torch body ensures flexible handling. The torch body can also be turned endlessly. A further improvement for the welder is an LED light on the torch which illuminates the welding location before and after welding. Furthermore, depending on their preference, the user can choose between a standard and a smaller, size-optimized handle. This compact version is also available with different control options.

The modular design of the new TIG welding torches from Fronius is a sustainable solution: the welding torch does not have to be thrown away if requirements change or parts break. Instead, the individual modules are changed with ease. Changing components can take place directly on site and without the help of a service technician, saving resources, time and costs.
