The i-Torch features an extreme compact design with excellent ergonomics and an integrated multifunctional display. An unique arrangement of all operational elements helps to reduce the distance between welder's hand and the arc, allowing a better control of the welding process. The torch can be easily switched from right to left-handed mode. All welding parameters are visible in every torch position and can be adjusted straight at the torch itself. The control keys provide a max. of haptic feedback. In summary, the i-Torch guarantees a more efficient workflow whilst achieving higher degrees of precision, thanks to improved ergonomics.
