Fronius has launched its Fronius Artis Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding machine that features a variety of individual applications and a range of functions.

Users can select 11 parameters on the display. The adjustable pulsed arc is said to play to its strengths in tight spaces and with thin materials, whereas the TAC function is ideal for precisely tacking components.

According to Fronius, time savings of up to 50% can be achieved and the function ensures that hardly any temper colours are produced—an advantage for the seam quality when subsequently welding over the tacking points.

With the electrode pulse mode, the Artis has an effective way of bridging bigger air gaps, working in tight spaces, and reliably welding vertical-up seams. The ignition behaviour means there is no more sticking and arc break. For optimal welding of cellulose electrodes, the Artis has its own characteristic with high open circuit voltage and ignition power.

The technology within the Artis is expected to ensure that welding specialists can concentrate on the weld regardless of voltage fluctuations. Fronius’s inverter technology compensates for mains fluctuations of up to 30% and provides the maximum output power for the welding process.
