Kit allows 20 GTAW torch configurations

February 13, 2007

Weldcraft designed its AK-150 Modular Flex (AK-150MF) Kit to provide maximum flexibility on a range of GTAW welding applications. The AK-150MF is an all-in-one kit that allows operators to convert their standard 17F or 17FV GTAW torch into 20 different torch styles using an existing cable. By delivering multiple configurations in a single package, the AK-150MF eliminates the need to purchase and carry extra torches and reduces downtime associated with torch changeovers.

The kit includes:

  • 1726: 200 amp, 70-degree head
  • 1726P: 200 amp, 180-degree head
  • 9-90: 125 amp, 90-degree head
  • 9P: 125 amp, 180-degree head
  • 24-90: 80 amp, 90-degree head
  • 150 CE molded coil element
  • 150 SE solid element
  • 150 TB torch body (without valve)
  • 150 VTB torch body (with valve)
  • 105Z55R ribbed handle

The rotatable heads improve flexibility by allowing the built-in gas valve on a 17FV torch to be positioned at any point on the handle and allow for multiple torch configurations on the nonvalved 17F. The easily removable head and coil combination unit, surrounded by silicon rubber insulation, eliminates multiple connection points to prevent overheating and high frequency leaks that can lead to unnecessary downtime or rework.
