  • Microcontroller – for precise process times, optimal functional reliability and maximum operating convenience
  • Function monitoring – automatic function test following power-up; monitoring of all internal system functions
  • Lift test – for gap welding guns and stud welding heads
  • Library function – automatic specification of welding current and welding time through selection of stud diameter
    according to welding range (with and without shielded gas); fine adjustment via arrow keys
  • Process monitoring – recording and analysis of factors affecting the welding process; after each weld, the reference
    and actual values are compared; display of the welding energy input; switchable automatic welding stop if limits are
  • RS232 interface – for data output; data and time of day are stored; welding parameters of each weld are logged


  • Extremely easy to operate
  • Compact
  • Mobile – highly mobile thanks to compact dimensions and low weight (50% weight savings vis-à-vis conventional stud welding units)
  • Robust – metal housing withstands rough treatment in shop and on site


  • With integrated mains filter (protection against voltage peaks)
  • Optimal for construction sites with large mains voltage fluctuations – use even with critical voltage supply (- 10% + 10%)
  • EMC test
  • High-voltage test with log
  • Retriggering lock-out – prevents welding on a welding element that has already been set
  • Thermal monitoring of transformer – automatic shutdown in case of overheating
  • Temperature-regulated ventilator – reduces noise and dust in the stud welding unit (greater system reliability)
  • Control unit galvanically separated from welding lines – high degree of functional safety
  • Optimal protection against external interferences
  • Protection class IP 23
  • Also permits operation outdoors


  • Display – infinitely adjustable power setting; easy monitoring of all functions via LED displays; easy operation via
    membrane keyboard and digital display; setting of welding parameters, programs, shielding gas, and process monitoring
    possible; digital display of current, welding, and gas-preflow time; separate settings for welding current and welding time
  • Powerful – built-in power reserves
  • Trouble-free changing of welding voltage polarity is possible by reconnecting the welding current and ground cables
  • Outstanding welding quality – very high arc stability even at weak welding currents
  • High process flexibility – high clock frequency (30 kHz) of the stud welding unit allows highly dynamic regulation of the welding process

Suitable stud welding guns

  • A 12, A 16, A 22, A 25, AI 06
