TR-T0016A - Touch Retract Welding Torch

The innovative TR-T0016A Touch Retract TIG Torch is a hand-held tool that has been developed for the welding of conductive thin-sheet material. Providing consistent welding performance in an easy to use form, the TR-T0016A Touch Retract TIG Torch is ideal for the assembly of battery modules and packs.

Traditionally, Nickel has been the first choice for current connectors within battery packs as it is easy to weld with Resistance Welding technology. Switching from Nickel to Copper tabs can improve battery performance by 20% however its conductive nature makes Resistance Welding a challenge. Micro-Arc welding is a highly efficient method for generating localised heat.

The TR-T0016A Touch Retract TIG Torch has been designed exclusively for use in combination with our PA-T200A Percussive Arc Power Supply which incorporates the necessary power electronics to facilitate highly controlled welds and interfacing with modern industrial communications systems.
