MacGregor Welding Systems (recently acquired by Amada Miyachi Europe) has released the TR-16A Touch Retract Welding Torch, a tool designed for R&D and low to medium-volume battery pack manufacturing, repair and reworking applications.
The system was designed to weld copper, nickel and aluminum battery tab materials up to 0.5 mm thick onto 18650 and 2170 battery can materials. It is also low voltage, granting it several safety advantages over tungsten inert gas (TIG) systems. The torch is lightweight and can be used for both prototyping and automotive manufacturing line needs.
