They said that it couldn't be done, they said that it would never work, they said - don't waste your time! Well Fronius thought otherwise and is proud to introduce the worlds first cordless welder!
With the AccuPocket 150 battery powered stick and TIG welding machine access to electricity is no longer necessary. No more cables, generators or trucks! Welding tasks involving up to eight 1/8" or up to eighteen 3/32 electrodes can be carried out anywhere, any time without any restrictions on welding power or the quality of the arc. The AccuPocket TIG also has a high frequency start avoiding scratch starts that foul your tungsten. For welding applications requiring more run time, the AccuPocket can be plugged into a 120V source and operated just like any other stick welding machine, even if the battery is dead! Charging can also be done incredibly fast, with 80% charge possible in 30 minutesWith its small dimensions, low weight and robust construction, the AccuPocket is the perfect welding machine for any service job, field work or mobile repair.
Hot Start - To make the electrode easier to ignite, the current at the power source is increased for a fraction of a second during ignition. The HotStart function was specially developed for welding with rutile and Cel electrodes.
SoftStart - The SoftStart function ensures a stable arc at the start of welding and was specially developed for electrodes that are welded with a low welding current (basic electrodes).
Anti-Stick - If a short circuit occurs that causes the electrode to stick during MMA welding, the power source is switched off immediately. This prevents the electrode from burning out.
Internal Gas Solenoid - Shielding gas for TIG is controlled by an internal control valve with pre-flow and post-flow settings
3 Year Fronius Warranty with product registration.
What really sets the AccuPocket apart isHybrid Mode. With any 120V power source the charger will recharge the AccuPocket battery pack while it is in operation with no loss of performance. In fact it is the only stick welder on the market that can deliver 140 amps of output capacity from a 120V source.
