Robust build with crash protection.

Are light weight and robust build mutually exclusive? Of course they aren’t! Even dropped down the stairs or pushed off of a workbench, this system will survive easily thanks to its crash protection at heights of up to 80 cm.

Mobile at the construction site.

Compact enough to fit into the optional assembly case with full TIG equipment for comfortable transport.


The special coating of the electronics, its integrated air duct and oversized power components optimise protection and service lives.

Safety and certification.

The Lorch HandyTIG 180 DC welding unit offers true IP 23S certification, the S mark, and tested CE conformity to European standards. Ongoing quality assurance “Made in Germany” further adds to this package to ensure uncompromising safety in the workshop and at the construction site.
