Fronius unveils world's first lithium battery powered MMA welder

Supplier: SMENCO
06 May, 2014

Just released in Australia by distributors SMENCO, comes the AccuPocket from Fronius - the world's first-ever MMA welding system with a high-performing lithium-ion rechargeable battery and a low overall weight.

This revolutionary technology enables users unprecedented freedom of movement in manual electrode and TIG welding. AccuPocket is the first welding power-source manufacturer to tap the concentrated power of lithium-ion technology for use in welding equipment.

AccuPocket ushers in a new and unprecedented era of mobile welding

Up until now, remote repair-welding high up in the mountains, field erection jobs out in the country or welding work at exposed locations involved costly and time-consuming preparations. Long mains supply leads or big, heavy 8 kVA generators are now no longer necessary.

There no longer has to be mains power nearby. Now jobs needing up to six 3.25 mm electrodes or up to 18 X 2.5 mm electrodes can be welded autonomously. For more substantial welding applications, a small, compact 2 kVA generator is sufficient to provide unlimited welding power or reduction in arc quality.

Thanks to AccuBoost Technology, AccuPocket welds extremely reliably and utilises its built-in power reserve to achieve perfect ignition and welding properties. Its advanced functional design – with very small dimensions, low weight and rugged build – makes AccuPocket the perfect companion at any field worksite.

AccuPocket has won two international awards for its new design, the prestigious 'Red Dot' and 'Plus X Award'. "Red Dot" is the world-renowned quality seal for outstanding design and is the 'Oscar' of the design world. The 'Plus X Award' is the world's biggest prize for innovative products in technology, sport and lifestyle.

The external shape of this MMA welding unit has also been completely redesigned to meet the harsh demands made in day-to-day welding.
