The HandyTIG 180 DC welding unitYour entry into the professional league of TIG welding.

Professional TIG welding, lighter than ever.

The Lorch HandyTIG 180 DC welding unit with fully digital inverter technology permits great performance in a small housing. Power has never been lighter, as the HandyTIG 180 DC welding unit weights no more than 6.5 kg. Its productivity is in the other extreme, with a powerful HF ignition, the stable, quiet arc, and the standard pulse function create perfectly clean welds, even on the thinnest of materials. Switching between 2- and 4-time to match the task is easy. The remote control on the torch keeps the arc under control at all times.  

Practice shows where true value lies.

Best operation. Best welding result.

The rest runs in the background. A very good system serves you, not you it. Operate - without you having to deal with it.

Always well-advised with close, personal, and honest support.
