Intuitive operation:

Offering exceptional ease of use and intuitive operation, the Lorch HandyTIG series allows you to produce welding results
of the highest order thanks to its automatic setting control.

Non-contacting HF ignition:

The TIG arc is ignited without direct contact by high-voltage pulses. Ignition is triggered with the press of a button to
ensure that the tungsten electrode does not come into contact with the workpiece. Putting an end to welds with tungsten
inclusions, this technology reduces the strain on the electrode. When working in HF-sensitive environments or on tools, the
operator has the additional option of switching to ContacTIG (contact ignition).

Automatic gas management:

Automatic gas management is applied to automatically regulate the gas pre-flow and post-flow, thereby protecting
electrode and weld pool against oxidation.

Connection for hand or foot remote control:

We offer a variety of hand or foot remote controls for the Lorch HandyTIG 180 that allow you to
step into the welding process and adjust the welding current if the welding machine happens to be positioned in a place
that is not right beside you.

Changeover DC to AC:

Offering you an effortless way to toggle between DC and AC, the Lorch HandyTIG 180 AC/DC allows you to remain
completely flexible.

Pulse and fast pulse:

The integrated pulse function with up to 2 kHz and up to 500 Hz, which comes standard, respectively, in the AC/DC and DC
variant of the Lorch HandyTIG 180, offers you additional benefits when welding thin plates.


Compact and protected against falls:

Its compact design and low weight make working with the Lorch HandyTIG 180 a breeze. Meanwhile, its exceptionally
robust case keeps the machine perfectly safe if subjected to falls from heights of up to 60 cm (AC/DC variant) or 80 cm (DC

Electrode welding function:

Electrode welding with Hotstart, Anti-Stick and Arc-Force regulation: The automatic Hotstart feature guarantees perfect
ignition every time, while the Anti-Stick system reliably prevents the electrode from sticking, and Arc-Force regulation
supports the welding process by providing for increased arc stability and optimised metal transfer.

Intelligent Torch Control:

Intelligent Torch Control enables the Lorch HandyTIG 180 AC/DC to automatically detect whether the welder uses a
standard torch or one of the latest, fully digital Lorch TIG torches including Powermaster remote control.


The Lorch HandyTIG 180 utilises leading-edge industrial electronics and fan-on-demand technology to achieve a superior
level of efficiency and exceptionally low power consumption.

Job memory:

The job memory can store up to four welding jobs.
