Cold Wire TIG Welding

The Fronius cold-wire components for iWave are lightweight and ergonomic, providing more flexibility for TIG welding.

The patented TFC electrode clamping system (Tungsten Fast Clamp) releases and clamps the tungsten electrode at the touch of a button, allowing it to be changed in a matter of seconds.

Fronius iWave equipped with all cold-wire components: intelligent SpeedNet-based TIG cold-wire feeder CWF 25i, TIG cold-wire feed system (CW-Feeding) and TFC quick-change electrode system

TIG CW-Feeding: The new cold-wire feed system can be mounted on intelligent TIG welding torches with ease and remains in a stable position after a one-time calibration. If gas nozzles need to be changed, it is simply folded away and then put back again.

TIG cold-wire components are available for Fronius iWave.

"The pioneering innovation lies in its intelligent control," said a company spokesperson. "With the patented TIG DynamicWire welding package, even amateurs can achieve perfect TIG welds with ease. This is because the dynamic wire control always selects the right travel speed. The process adapts to the welder, not the other way around."

Manuel Rumpl, Head of Strategic Product Management Industrial Welding Solutions, Fronius International GmbH, said, "All the new features that we have packed into the iWave cold-wire components as well as the corresponding software solution make TIG welding significantly easier. Due to TIG DynamicWire, welders can focus all their attention on the arc and the welding system regulates the optimal wire speed at all times."

The iWave power categories from 300i to 500i can be upgraded to the TIG cold-wire system. The TIG DynamicWire welding package is ready for use immediately by means of software activation and can also be retrofitted to existing iWave systems at any time.

"The innovative advantage of Fronius DynamicWire compared to a conventional continuous wire feed lies in its automatic self-regulation," said the spokesperson. "The welding system actively adjusts the wire speed to the welding behavior, torch position, and current conditions, even automatically compensating for component tolerances of up to 30%. The result? Perfect welds every time."

The cold-wire system is engineered in a way that allows welders to work optimally with minimal steps and adjustments. The wirefeeder is set once and then remains in a stable position. The ergonomic and flexible tungsten holder is particularly lightweight as it is produced using material-saving aluminum 3D printing. There are also no disturbing vibrations at the torch handle, since the mechanical forward and backward motion of the wire has been dispensed with entirely with the TIG DynamicWire cold-wire welding process.

With the Tungsten Fast Clamp system (TFC), Fronius is bringing out another new patent. A single touch of the button releases and clamps the tungsten electrode in the spring-loaded clamping sleeve. Like the lead of a mechanical pencil, the electrode is changed in a matter of seconds. This system can now also be mounted on existing torch bodies.

In times of skills shortages, iWave complete with cold-wire feeding and TIG DynamicWire can help TIG novices and those with less experience achieve a better welding result, and fast. Self-regulating parameter settings and characteristics, as well as a compensatory active wirefeeder, provide the necessary safety and offer a high level of quality.

Since the wire does not continuously move back and forth during intelligent TIG cold-wire welding, even wear parts such as the torch body, torch cap and clamping sleeve experience reduced abrasion and last longer than comparable solutions, the company reported.
