FOCUSED ON HIGH-PERFORMANCE RESULTS
The plasma welding process is very similar to the TIG welding process, but has a number of key advantages. The main reasons for using a plasma welding system are always the reliable, top-quality results and higher welding speeds. This applies to all chrome-nickel materials, coated and uncoated steels, titanium and all nickel-based materials. Application areas include the automotive supply industry, pipeline and container construction, mechanical engineering and structural steelwork, rail vehicle construction and shipbuilding.
THE ADVANTAGES AT A GLANCE
/ UP TO 20% HIGHER WELDING SPEED
/ NO WELD-SEAM PREPARATION, UP TO 30% LESS FILLER METAL NEEDED
/ COMPLETELY SPATTER- AND PORE-FREE
/ DEEPER PENETRATION, YET ONLY MINIMAL COMPONENT DISTORTION
THE SYSTEM – KEEPING THE FOCUS ON THE BIG PICTURE
At Fronius, every welding process is looked upon as a system, right from the outset. This is the only way of ensuring that all the components (each of them of top quality, of course) are compatible and work in perfect harmony. The plasma welding system comprises four main components: a digital TIG power source with a cooling unit, the PlasmaModule 10 and a plasma torch. The exact system configuration can be tailored to individual requirements.
DIGITAL TIG POWER SOURCE
The fully digitised MagicWave and TransTig TIG power sources from 0.5 to 500 A are ideal for plasma welding. With these TIG welding systems, you can configure your plasma system at any time.
This retrofittable attachment keeps the plasma gas flow rate between 0.2 l/min and 10.0 l/min, meaning that any welding result can be reproduced in the best quality.
