Fronius has added two additional multiprocess devices to its manual welding range.

Alongside the existing TransSteel 2200, the new TransSteel 2700 and the new TransSteel 3500 Compact offer the ability to carry out TIG, MIG/MAG, und SMAW welding. The series combines a compact device design with simple operation.

The TransSteel 2700 and TransSteel 3500 C complement the existing tested TransSteel 2200. The new systems are variants of the TransSteel 2200 with increased power. Instead of the original 220 amperes, the systems offer a maximum amperage of 270 amperes (TransSteel 2700), or 350 amperes (TransSteel 3500 C). The power sources achieve this maximum output during all welding processes with no loss of power.

All devices are equipped with a polarity reverser: some flux core wires need to be welded using the negative pole, and this can be carried out by plugging the polarity reverser into the front of the machine. The TransSteel systems are also equipped with a second gas solenoid valve, which allows a variety of gas bottles to be connected. The device automatically detects which gas is required for which process, eliminating the need to switch between different gases manually. All three processes can be found on the control panel, so switching between processes is quicker. Accessing specific background menus is only required when setting up special functions and special welding parameters.

The simplified process and setting options enable users of different skill levels to use the devices. The three-in-one range also helps minimize investment costs and running costs for wearing parts, as one machine is now able to do the work of three different welding systems.
