Weldcraft has a new option to help meet the needs of demanding water-cooled TIG welding applications. The new WP-280 water-cooled TIG torch has been designed with the company’s exclusive Super Cool™ Technology to provide consistent and dependable cooling performance. This technology consists of a design which improves the torch’s efficiency, resulting in less downtime due to overheating and a longer lasting torch.
The WP-280 TIG torch body also includes an anti-rotation feature to prevent handle movement during welding and improve operator control. Adding to its maneuverability is the torch’s Tri-Flex™ hose and cable assembly, which has been designed to remain flexible in cold weather, improve operator control and prevent cracking. ColorSmart™ hose and cable sets differentiate input water, water/power cable and gas hoses to simplify torch installation.
The WP-280 TIG torch has additional features to improve performance and increase product longevity, including durable copper components, which maximize current capacity and high-temperature silicone rubber insulation to protect against high-frequency voltage leaks. Mechanical fittings also provide a secure gas and water connection to prevent leakage and allow end-users to replace hoses easily as needed.
Weld-Ready™ torch package has installed front-end parts, including a nozzle, a medium back cap, 3/32-inch collet and collet body, and 3-inch length Ceriated tungsten electrode. The torch packages also include a cable cover, which features a hook and loop closure to prevent slippage and provide cable protection, while also allowing access for remote finger control cables. Torch packages with part numbers ending in MFD50 include a cable cover, which reaches to the power source to reduce cable clutter and offer additional cable protection, as well as a 50 mm dinse connector.
