New full protection wire feeder by Lorch for demanding use in practice

Ultra-compact, extremely stable, and fully insulated

With compact dimensions, low weight, and a robust build, Lorch Schweißtechnik GmbH is offering a new full protection wire feeder to offer perfect welding results even during extreme conditions. The innovative wire feeder was developed for the S and MicorMIG series alike.

Welding may very quickly turn into a physically exhausting, narrow affair in particularly challenging working environments, such as ship construction, large component production, container construction, or industrial production. This poses great challenges to the welder and the equipment alike. Lorch has developed the new full protection wire feeder MF-10 for this specifically: With its ultra-compact dimensions of 620 x 245 x 310 millimetres (L x W x H), it is very suitable for use in manholes with a 200-millimetre spool (D200). Its low weight of barely 10 kilograms makes it easy to carry even across longer distances. In contrast to conventional metal cases, the MF-10 is made of high-performance plastic, making it fully insulated and great even for complicated and demanding areas of use. With its extreme stability and robustness, it will resist a drop from 60 centimetres easily, clearly exceeding the standard of 25 centimetres.

Easy access to the tool-free quick fittings of the hose package and user-friendly latching and tension relief also make sure that the intermediate hose package can be removed easily. The transparent spool housing cover enables the welder to check the remaining wire on the spool easily at any time. An integrated inner lighting specifically for the MicorMIG version permits simple guiding and replacement of the wire roll even in poor lighting.

The feeder carrying handle was optimised for harsh practical use as well and will always remain above the centre of gravity of the wire feeder in the MF-10. The handle alignment and the resulting ergonomic angle avoids a torque on the wrist when carrying, greatly relieving the welder when reaching through a manhole or handing down from the scaffolding.

The new MF-10 full protection wire feeder is available in four different versions. Two of them are for the MicorMIG series with a wire spool housing of 200 millimetres (D200) and 300 millimetres (D300) each, equipped with the ControlPro operating panel. For the welding units of the S-series, there is the full protection wire feeder MF-10 with its XT-operating panel, each with the small (D200) and the large (D300) spool housing.
