AMADA WELD TECH Highlights Touch Retract Welding Torch

Consistent, easy to use Torch made for welding conductive thin-sheet metal

AMADA WELD TECH highlights its innovative Touch Retract Welding Torch (TR-T0016A). This hand-held and machine-mountable tool has been developed specifically for the welding of conductive thin-sheet metal. Ideal for the assembly of battery modules and packs, the torch provides consistent welding performance in an easy-to-use format.

The Touch Retract Torch is distinguished by its ease of use. The light weight, ergonomic design allows operators to easily manipulate the tool. Its protruding electrode and narrow, 7mm nozzle enable easy weld location control. The narrow nozzle also allows for simple, repeatable weld location. Furthermore, it can upscale manufacturing capacity with an integrated collar for machine integration.

The Torch is able to weld stainless steel to stainless steel or conductive materials such as copper, to nickel or stainless steel. The variety of metals the Torch can weld, combined with its handheld nature makes it ideal for a wide range of applications including tack welding for medical devices and battery tab welding.

One of the major benefits of the TR-T0016A is its ability to allow battery makers to transition from nickel to copper tabs, ultimately improving battery performance. Though copper's conductive nature makes it difficult to weld with Resistance Gap Welding, the Micro Arc Welding enabled by the Torch provides a highly efficient means of generating localized heat.
