New approach to TIG welding


Fronius International began in 1945 as a one-man operation now sets technological standards in the fields of welding technology, photovoltaics and battery charging. Today, the company has around 3,800 employees worldwide and 1,242 patents for product development show the innovative spirit within the company. Sustainable development means for us to implement environmentally relevant and social aspects equally with economic factors. Our goal has remained constant throughout to be the innovation leader. We have managed to put thousands of hours of TIG welding experience and condensed into few simple operations.
A clean TIG weld seam requires two things: A high degree of skill and countless hours of practical experience. We‘ve packed all this experience into our new TIG series. With its intuitive menu navigation, users are able to access the correct parameters in just a few steps and can then concentrate fully on what they‘re best at. The functions can also be customised and extended, facilitating efficient manual welding.
From pipeline and container construction, through stainless steel applications to vehicle repair and maintenance – the new TIG devices can be used in many different ways.
Fronius launches new TIG series on the market
Austrian technology leader Fronius has expanded its portfolio of manual power sources with three new devices for Tungsten Inert Gas welding (TIG). The MagicWave 230i, 190 and TransTig 230i are extremely practical, powerful and quiet. Thanks to their rapid signal processors, they always achieve the exact current curve that allows for maximum arc stability with the lowest possible noise emissions. With its intuitive menu navigation, users are able to access the correct parameters in just a few steps and can then concentrate fully on what they’re best at – achieving a clean weld seam.
Highly versatile power sources for AC welding
Whether in pipeline or container construction, for processing stainless steel or vehicle repair and maintenance – the new Fronius TIG welding systems have a whole range of uses. The most powerful power source is the MagicWave 230i for AC welding. It has one particular advantage: it can communicate with other devices via Bluetooth, WLAN and NFC technology, and can be networked with them. The MagicWave 190 is ideal for welding materials such as steel, stainless steel or aluminium. The AC power source features gas cooling and is the best choice for a wide range of uses.
Lightweight for DC welding
An integral part of the new series is the TransTig 230i for DC welding. Weighing just 15.9 kilograms, it is especially light. This manual power source is suitable for all welding applications apart from aluminium. As with the MagicWave 230i, the power source can also be supplied with an optional water-cooling system. Using Bluetooth, WLAN and NFC, the TransTig 230i can also connect wirelessly to devices such as an intelligent welding helmet, remote control or even a smartphone.
Optimum user customisability
The multilingual operating concept of the manual power source with a 4.3-inch full-colour display allows for intuitive and extremely simple operation. Using the favourite’s button, welders can easily retrieve and set parameters that they often use. The modular design is a particular advantage: users can expand these devices as desired with different function packages. These include the job function, which can store up to 999 jobs at the same time, the PulsPro package to obtain all pulse functionalities, additional data documentation and limit monitoring. The latter aids the user in setting a defined parameter window and keeping to certain welding parameters. USB ports allow software updates to be installed and welding data to be documented.
New welding torch for precise handling
Every device is available as a multivoltage version. Using the Fronius Power Plug – a lockable plug connector on the rear of the power source – the mains cable or plug can be changed quickly and easily depending on where the device is being used. This means it can be used anywhere in the world – even with different mains voltages. Fronius has also redesigned the welding torch: an ergonomic grip combined with a torch changing system as standard increases comfort and convenience, and allows for even more precise handling. The integrated, high-performance LED illuminates the seam area efficiently, leaving the welder to concentrate entirely on their task and achieve excellent results.
