High-performance TIG torch InFocus 500 for better accessibility

Mini torch InFocus 500 joins all steels and non-ferrous metals from a sheet thickness of 0.1 mm

(PresseBox) (Finsterwalde, ) Kjellberg Finsterwalde presents the small high-performance TIG torch InFocus 500 for the first time at the trade fair Schweißen & Schneiden 2013 in Essen. With a length of only 95 mm and a diameter of 20 mm the InFocus 500 improves the accessibility during welding and soldering. It expands the possible applications of automated welding of all steels and non-ferrous metals with the InFocus technology from a sheet thickness of 0.1 mm in car and vehicle manufacture, pipeline construction as well as medical and sensor technology.

InFocus is the high-performance TIG technology for automated application. It is designed for high process speeds, is spatter-free and process-stable. Speeds of up to 15 m/min can be achieved for InFocus welding, up to 7 m/min for InFocus soldering. Key components of the InFocus technology are the welding torches for 500 A and 1,000 A, developed and patented by Kjellberg Finsterwalde. The optimised cooling of torch and cathode concentrates the InFocus arc at the tip of the cathode, so that arc characteristics and process features similar to plasma welding are achieved. The high energy density of the arc forces a narrow energy input and deep penetration. This results in a stable welding process without deflection of the arc.

Sheet metal plates made from steel and non-ferrous metals ranging from 0.15 to 12 mm in thickness can be joined together with the InFocus torches. For example, galvanised metal sheets are joined with InFocus soldering and seams similar to laser welding are produced. With InFocus keyhole welding, plates of up to 12 mm in thickness made from high-alloyed as well as low- and unalloyed steel are welded in a single layer at up to 1 m/min. The weld surfaces are similar to those of plasma cutting, however fewer parameters need to be set, making the InFocus technology faster and easier to use. Due to its low energy input, for the user the process ensures welding with little distortion and low internal workpiece stresses. With its features, InFocus is positioned between laser-, plasma- and conventional TIG welding.

Since the first presentation of the InFocus technology in 2009, Kjellberg Finsterwalde has refined the technology and has extensive experience as well as the process understanding needed to adapt and design the high-performance TIG technology for the great variety of joining tasks.

Kjellberg Finsterwalde Dienstleistungsgesellschaft mbH

The companies of the Kjellberg Finsterwalde Group have developed and produced welding technique and filler materials since 1922 and also plasma cutting technique since 1959. Today, they offer a large variety of products and technologies for thermal separating, joining and processing - it is no longer possible to imagine the metalworking industry without Kjellberg Finsterwalde.

Kjellberg Finsterwalde is the oldest manufacturer of plasma cutting technique in the market and is the world market leader in this area today. In particular, the HiFocus series with its excellent cut quality is evidence of the company's competence. Laser cutting systems complete the product range.

When it comes to joining and coating metal according to the highest welding quality standards, Kjellberg Finsterwalde is the right partner, too. The company concentrates on customer-specific all-in-one solutions, thus offering users in the metalworking industry competitive advantages.

Quality-tested welding electrodes are produced in the Kjellberg Finsterwalde Elektroden und Zusatzwerkstoffe GmbH - one of Europe's most modern electrode factories. The product range includes more than 60 standard electrodes and numerous special electrodes.

Since 2012 the Kjellberg Maschinenfabrik GmbH offers individual services in tool manufacturing and specialpurpose engineering from small series to high volumes.
