T220 Control Pro TIG welder

Professional mobile TIG welder.

The Lorch T220 is a versatile and extremely portable compact TIG welding machine which packs 220 Amps of punch into a lightweight single phase unit.

The 220 Amp AC/DC TIG model is very popular as it is a go-to machine for so many applicaions.
- Almost all Aluminium welding applications
- Stainless steel pipe welder
- Stainless steel tube welder
- Spot mode for tack welding thin sheet metal

This machine is compatible with a generator and has SinePower-Management systems by Lorch which prevent fuse tripping.

The TipTronic mode has a job memory for 100 different weld settings.

It is also ready for a plug and play water cooling unit from Lorch for optimum torch duty cycle.

Further specs to this little beauty are listed below.

Outstanding TIG welding characteristics thanks to inverter technology

Distinguished by their high efficiency and superb welding characteristics, inverters utilise digital software control technology that has a significant influence on the outcome of the welding process.

The SmartBase expert database provides for optimum arc conditions

SmartBase is the name of the expert database devised by Lorch to control the arc. This database lets you adjust the parameter settings yourself, giving you the freedom you need to tweak and correct even the finest details of the process you are applying.

Pulse and fast pulse up to 2 kHz

The standard pulse function with up to 2 kHz that is built into every machine offers you additional benefits when welding thin plates.

TipTronic

Using the TipTronic facility, you save your ideal setting for each weld so that you can effortlessly retrieve the settings one at a time using the Up-Down or Powermaster torch when performing recurring welding tasks.

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 when you are dealing with difficult electrodes.

Remote Control

Welders often experience that the conditions on site do not allow them to place their welding machine right beside them. When faced with this type of situation, they find the use of a remote control helpful as it allows them to intervene and adjust the welding current if necessary. This is why Lorch has included a large variety of different hand and foot remote controls in their T series, which are ready for use right away thanks to their plug&play support.

Optional equipment

While designed for mobile applications, the Lorch T 220 can be converted into a handy, yet fully capable machine suitable for use in the workshop by upgrading it with an optional water cooling system. When mounted on an optional Maxi Trolley, it fully retains its mobile capabilities even with the water cooling system fitted.

Changeover from DC to AC (AC/DC only)

Available as DC and AC/DC versions in all power variants, Lorch's T series provides you with maximum flexibility.

Intelligent Torch Control

Thanks to Intelligent Torch Control (ITC), Lorch's smart torch control system, the machines included in the T series are capable of detecting whether the inserted torch is a standard torch or one of Lorch's latest-generation torches. This system offers an extensive range of protective features and affords the welder a significant amount of added convenience.

Low energy consumption

The included on-demand function automatically turns the components of your Lorch T 220 on and off as needed, while the thermal control sensors monitor the temperature of your system and regulate the speed of the fan accordingly. This smart technology reduces fan noise and dust levels in the machine compartment and helps conserve energy.

Protected against falls from a height of up to 60 cm

Weighing in at a mere 12 kg, the Lorch T series is easy to carry, yet fully protected against falls from a height of up to 60 cm.

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).
