The HandyTIG AC/DC seriesThe compact all-rounder for aluminium and stainless steel.

A champion in all disciplines.

If you can do any job professionally anywhere, you may certainly call yourself a jack of all trades. The Lorch HandyTIG AC/DC series welding units are just as much at home in a workshop as it is at the construction site. 

The welder is the only one who’s even more comfortable since the professional Lorch welding unit makes perfect weld seams on aluminium or stainless steel extremely easy for them. 

Special feature: Since aluminium is a very good heat conductor, a higher current is required for every additional millimetre of material thickness. This is why the HandyTIG 180 AC/DC is available for aluminium up to 5 mm thick and the HandyTIG 200 AC/DC for aluminium up to 8 mm thick. Both welding units are suitable for the 230 V.

Trust in your compact all-rounder in apparatus construction or sheet metal processing with a fixed workplace as well as when out for repairs, maintenance, and final assembly: The HandyTIG AC/DC series delivers the best performance – anytime, anywhere. It is also very mobile at just above 13 kg.

The advantages of smart TIG welding with the HandyTIG AC/DC series.

HandyTIG AC/DC series welding units produce a particularly stable arc. The smart, fully digital process control adjusts the TIG arc in an exceptionally stable and precise manner. Even fluctuating mains voltages cannot change this. This is not even where the outstanding functions of this comprehensive equipment end: 


Reduced noise at stable arc.

AC mode optimises the current form for greatest stability, outstanding cleaning effect of the aluminium oxide skin and reduced noise. 

Durability and resilience.

The standard protective cover of the control panel and the integrated dust filter warrant resistance and durability even in rough installation conditions. The special crash protection keeps the housing safe even at falls from a height of up to 60 cm. 

Job function.

The job function stores settings for 2 TIG and 2 electrode welds to be retrieved easily at need. Perfect for repetitive work. 

MMA welding.

Lorch welding units of the HandyTIG AC/DC series can be used for MMA welding as well. The arc-force control comes ensures arc stability and perfect material transition. The electrode will not stick or anneal due to the anti-stick system. 


The easier way of aluminium welding with the intuitive ControlPro operation concept.

The operation concept of the HandyTIG AC/DC series is sophisticated to the last detail: First select the current type: DC for steel, AC for aluminium. As always, Lorch takes care of the everything else with its “3 steps to weld” operation concept.
