Weldcraft's 150- and 200-Amp TIG Torches Improve Welding Flexibility, Reduce Costly Downtime
-Versatile modular design -Available gas valve version -Configurable torch head options APPLETON, Wis. 12 September 2007-For welding operators who encounter multiple joint configurations or joints with limited access, Weldcraft offers its WP-150 and WP-200 hand-held air-cooled TIG torches. These torches have a modular design with easily configurable head options that help improve flexibility and provide better welding performance, even in hard-to-reach areas. The modular design also allows for easy, low-cost maintenance and repairs, and minimizes downtime for torch changeovers. When welding operators encounter a new joint, they can simply change to the desired head option, instead of connecting a new torch. Both torches feature a flexible neck that can be adjusted to reach most any angle, and the WP-150 also has an available AK-150 modular flex kit that allows welding operators to convert this torch into 20 unique configurations. The WP-150 and WP-200 torches feature a comfortable ribbed handle that remains cool even after prolonged use, allowing for longer periods of welding time and reducing operator discomfort associated with torch overheating. The addition of a copper head and coil assembly increases the torches cooling capacity and extends consumable life, both factors that prevent costly downtime. Additionally, both torches are available with an optional gas valve (WP-150V, WP-200V) for greater shielding gas flow control. The WP-150 is also available in a version (WP-150G) that features a 24-90 (90 degree) head to improve maneuverability on the most complex joints. The WP-150 torches are rated at 150 amps DC or 105 amps AC at 60-percent duty cycle. The WP-200 torches are rated at 200 amps DC and 150 amps AC, also at 60-percent duty cycle.
