Fronius has developed a new torch body for robotic welding devices: the MTB 350’s gas nozzle has a diameter that is 20 percent smaller than conventional torches, enabling improved access to components.

Owners of the Fronius TPS and TPS/i robotic welding devices can retrofit the new MTB (machine torch body) 350. The gas nozzle’s diameter is now just 20 mm, as opposed to the conventional 25. This means the welding torch can reach the interface more easily, even when working with challenging component geometries.

The torch body is available in various geometries (22°, 36° and 45°). The MTB 350 is also available in the “Asian Style” variant: here, the longer torch body is suited to the typical design of robotic welding torches used in Asia.

Despite the slim gas nozzle, the new torch body enables a high duty cycle at maximum output: at 350 A when using pure CO2, the welding torch achieves a duty cycle of 60 percent, i.e. the arc can operate for 6 minutes out of 10. At 300 A, the torch can weld without interruption. If mixed gas is used, the MTB 350 can achieve a 100 percent duty cycle at 250 A and 60 percent at 300 A.

Sales and service teams, both at head office and regionally, ensure that customers are supported as quickly as possible on their own premises. In addition, customers benefit from services such as calibration, a warranty extension and a maintenance contract.

For decades, Fronius has made significant contributions to advances in welding technology. The company is still in family ownership and its welding technology division is now one of the world’s technology leaders in the arc welding market segment. It is also the market leader in Europe.

Welding Technology is one of three Fronius divisions. Since the 1940s, Fronius has been creating technologies and solutions for monitoring and controlling energy in battery-charging systems, and since 1992 the same in solar electronics. The mains-connected inverter, the unique Fronius Service Partner programme and products for monitoring photovoltaic systems make Fronius one of the leading suppliers in the field of solar electronics.
