The online welding supplies store where we have a comprehensive set of TIG welding torches from leading welding equipment brands ESAB, Binzel and SWP.
All of our selected welding torches come complete with the perfectly matched line; in lengths from 3m to 8m.Weldtech's wide range of TIG torch options include, water cooled torches for the most powerful high current welding and continuous working. These are most suitable for heavy duty professional workplaces.
When thinking about buying a TIG welding torch, have you thought about all the factors that affect the suitability of a particular torch for your welding activities? What current (amperage) will the torch need to carry? What kind of filler wire will you need to use with the torch? Will you opt for a lighter air-cooled torch or get better heat control with a water-cooled torch?
How comfortable are you likely to feel after a long shift? This is often overlooked though studies have shown many aspects of the design of TIG torches that can help reduce the strain of repeated welds.
Our selected gas cooled TIG torches are a lighter weight, more economical alternative, which are ideal for small jobs and hobby scale TIG welding projects. If you prefer a torch body with a flex head – we’ve got you covered… as well as options for those who prefer rigid heads.
More Thoughts To Consider When Selecting a TIG Welding Torch
The smaller, mainly air cooled models contain less copper and are connected with thinner cables. Thinner cables create higher electrical resistance, and so as they carry higher current they will get hotter and become uncomfortable to use. What will the torch be used for? If you are welding thick metal with a higher current, then you may well need to choose a torch that's given a higher power rating than you originally thought.
Will The Torch Fit My Welding Machine?
The standard connection for TIG torches to a welder is the good old 3/8" BSP nut, though many torches now come with a Dinse socket. If the torch you want is Dinse and the welder is standard 3/8" BSP, there are adapters to overcome the mismatch. They will work well with either a dedicated TIG welder or one of the many multi process welders like the ESAB Rebel EMP 215ic
