Welding technology expert Fronius is launching a new generation of its tried-and-tested MMA welding system: introducing the TransPocket 150 and TransPocket 180. The devices have been refined to produce outstanding welding results and include an improved range of functions. In addition, a digital resonance inverter ensures perfect weld properties for a variety of electrode types, and thanks to innovative PFC (Power Factor Correction) technology, the devices are extremely energy-efficient.

The TransPocket 150 and 180 are replacing the proven TransPocket 1500. With the TransPocket 180, a single-phase 180 A MMA welding system will be available for the first time. The manual welding systems are designed primarily for MMA welding and can process rod electrodes with a diameter of up to 4.0 millimetres. The latest generation of devices is also suitable for TIG welding up to 220 A, with a new TIG Multi Connector and welding torch with Up/Down function available for this purpose. The latter enables the welding current to be set on the welding torch. The TransPocket permits TIG welding as a pulse welding process as well as in two and four-step mode.

Fronius has also further optimised the design of the TransPocket. The stable and robust plastic housing provides the device’s sensitive electronics with the best protection against dust and moisture, making it suitable for all applications. A permanently integrated dust filter and improved cooling system are also used for this purpose. These guide the air flow past the sensitive PC boards, preventing them from becoming contaminated. Ergonomic handles simplify handling, and the protected, seven-segment display can be clearly read under all lighting conditions. The user interface is simple and intuitive and offers a variety of options. In addition to the protected service interface, which allows system information to be read easily and updates to be carried out for special characteristics, the optimised housing also ensures effortless device maintenance.

The TransPocket 180 is also available as a multivoltage variant – a flexible single-phase device that can be operated at a mains voltage of between 96 and 265 volts. This is a huge advantage for users with different mains supplies. The compact and robust design of the TransPocket makes it the ideal companion for use on construction sites.

Fronius UK will be showcasing for the first time in the UK the new Fronius TransPocket 150 and 180 at the MACH exhibition, stand 4758 April 11-15 at the NEC in Birmingham.
