Welding for a quieter life

Compact performance, lower noise level, stable arc and easy operation are the features of the new TIG welding systems by TPS-Fronius. The MagicWave 1700 and the MagicWave 2200 are two welding machines for AC/DC welding at 170 and 220A, respectively, whereas the TransTig 2200 is a TIG DC welding machine up to 220A. The 15kg high-tech lightweight machines open up the possibility of universal application. Complete digitisation and ActiveWave technology guarantees good results for aluminium alloys and non-ferrous metals as well as low-alloy and high-alloy steels. With the ActiveWave technology developed by Fronius, the integrated digital processor continuously calculates each working point, resulting in a combination of optimum arc stability and minimum noise emissions. The power curve generated by the energy source in real time results in a noise level below 80dBa even at maximum power. This means a more exact “welding by ear” with a quieter and hence less stressful working environment. The new machines provide a number of functions which result in large time savings. One of these is the automatic ball formation of the electrode in only 1s. Other innovations include programs available at the push of a button, the possibility of 100 jobs, for pulse, spot and tacking functions, or the easy operating concept. Another highlight is the “Jobmaster TIG” torch that puts all the functions directly into the welder’s hand “on site”. Accesories include various remote controls, torches, water cooling and also options such as networking with PC and robots. The machines can run from either generators of from a standard 230V socket.
