Fronius welding torches for manual Tungsten Inert Gas welding (TIG) Click image to enlargeWelders can customize Fronius’ welding torches for manual Tungsten Inert Gas welding (TIG) to suit the welder’s personal preferences or the welding task at hand. Their modular design offers a range of sustainable and cost-effective options.

 

Pick a large or small handle, and choose one control to set the amperage or an additional JobMaster display that accesses pre-programmed settings. The modular design of these TIG welding torches covers all of these requirements without having to replace the entire torch. Different gas nozzles, different torch angles—every welder has their own preference.

The hose pack 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 hose pack by pressing and turning, and it’s 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 hose pack is still connected.

The ergonomic handles of the new TIG welding torches are available with three interchangeable control elements: an Up-Down rocker switch, JobMaster display or rotatable potentiometer. The non-slip handle contains soft components to reduce hand strain. A ball joint between the hose and torch body ensures flexible handling. The torch body can also be turned endlessly. An LED light on the torch illuminates the welding location before and after welding.

Changing components can take place directly on site and without the help of a service technician.
