The new Fronius Ignis: as versatile as your tasks are varied

On the outside, the durable housing keeps environmental factors like dust and moisture at bay, while the pioneering technology on the inside offers a range of convenient functions to facilitate the welding process.

If you want to deliver perfect welds in even the most adverse conditions, whether indoors or outdoors, or in the tightest spaces, you need a quality welding machine that is robust and easy-to-handle. The new Fronius Ignis 150/180 series was designed to meet precisely these requirements. On the outside, the durable housing keeps environmental factors like dust and moisture at bay, while the pioneering technology on the inside offers a range of convenient functions to facilitate the welding process.


Whether assembly, maintenance or repair, each welding task brings its own specific requirements. The weld needs to be precise and to withstand any stress or weather influences. This applies even when there is no stable power grid available. This poses no problem for the compact Ignis, available in the 150 A and 180 A power categories. There are also TIG variants for both models for those looking for a mobile TIG welding solution. The Ignis 180 is also available in country-specific versions and can be used in regions with different mains voltages.

Stable arc for any power grid
The first requirement for quality welding is a reliable arc. The Ignis 150/180 delivers precisely that even in the event of voltage fluctuations, during generator-powered operation, or with up to 100 meter-long grid leads. The integrated Power Factor Correction technology optimally uses the existing mains voltage, thereby improving the power factor. Not only does this make the Ignis extremely energy-efficient, it also increases the welders' operating range, giving them more or less free rein to create perfect welds. The Ignis is therefore the perfect companion, whether for use on construction sites, for repair and maintenance work in industry and agriculture, or in your home workshop.

Powerhouse with a wide range of functions
Although the Ignis 150 (6.5 kg) and the Ignis 180 (8.8 kg) are particularly lightweight and easy to handle, they contain sophisticated technology and a host of features to make everyday welding easier. First things first, both systems feature an easy-to-use menu operated via a rotary and push button, which allows users to select their desired parameters, and the 7-segment display clearly shows the settings at all times.

The Ignis also features SoftStart, HotStart and TrackingArc functions to assist welders when they start welding. SoftStart was specially developed for basic electrodes that require a low welding current. HotStart, on the other hand, increases the current for a fraction of a second at the start to enable the electrode to ignite more easily, which is very useful for rutile and cellulose electrodes. Like a flashlight, TrackingArc helps to find the exact starting position, for example, when re-igniting after an interruption or after an electrode change. This is especially useful when using non-automatic darkening welding helmets. This prevents welding errors such as end-craters or notches from occurring in the first place and saves time-consuming reworking.

Pulse function delivers perfection at speed
The MMA Pulse function is particularly well suited to achieving attractive, high-quality welds. This function enables high-quality welding at speed and is also an excellent choice for challenging welding tasks in tight spaces. Of course, TIG pulse is also available for the TIG version of the Ignis 180. The pulsed TIG arc primarily facilitates the welding of very thin materials, since less heat is introduced into the base material. When pulsing, the welding specialist has excellent control over the weld pool and can therefore produce the characteristic seam appearance with a high level of precision.

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

T.J. Davies' Retention Knobs

Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
