ETR - Endless Torch Rotating System
ETR SYSTEM – EVERYTHING FROM A SINGLE SOURCE.
The entire system consists exclusively of Fronius components, which work in perfect harmony and deliver unsurpassed welding results. Fronius offers the best cladding technologies and has established itself as the global technology and market leader.
High degree of reproducibility
Leading welding technology
Designed for maximum performance and easy servicing
Display of welding parameters in real time
The system is controlled via a user-friendly touchscreen. Equipped with an industrial PC with a Windows Embedded operating system, the FPA can be connected to the network and also allows communication between several FPA system controllers. Remote support can be provided thanks to the internet connection.

FCB COLUMN & BOOM.
Available in a variety of sizes and with different travel paths.
Cabling protected using energy chains.
DIGITAL POWER SOURCE SET.
The power team: TransTig 5000 Job with 4000R high-performance cooling unit and TransTig 2200 Job – completely digital for optimum welding results with the TIG HW welding process.
BASE UNIT WITH CARRIAGE (OPTIONAL).
The column and boom can be equipped with a carriage as an option.
ETR WELDING HEAD / FCS CROSS SLIDE SYSTEM.
The key component of the ETR-S is the endlessly rotating welding head. The FCS is available with various travel paths.
FRT ROTARY TABLE (OPTIONAL).
For certain component geometries, an optional rotary table can increase productivity.
THE CENTREPIECE – THE ENDLESSLY ROTATING WELDING HEAD.
The endlessly rotating welding head is at the heart of the ETR system. The welding torch and wirefeeder rotate about the bore axis. The welding current, gas, torch cooling and electrical control signals are conveyed without interruption via the transfer module. An “Extension” or a “Swivel Adapter” can be added to the ETR depending on the application.
Transmission unit for the rotational movement. Boasts maintenance-free electronics thanks to the high-quality gold contacts.
Four-roller wirefeeder for constant, smooth wirefeeding. TWIN setup optional.
Rotating wirespool. A second wirespool is fitted with the TWIN option.
Equipped with shatter-proof glass and safety switch.
TTHW WELDING TORCH.
TTHW welding torch for components with internal diameters of 25 - 320 mm. Minimum component Ø for TTHW 6000M SpeedClad: 150 mm.
TTW welding torch with Small Extension for components with an external diameter of up to 711 mm.
Swivel adapter with TTHW welding torch for components with an internal diameter of up to 1400 mm.
TTW welding torch with Large Extension for components with an external diameter of up to 500 mm.
CYLINDRICAL BORE WITH BASE.

KEY COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGES.
SpeedClad TWIN drastically increases the cost effectiveness of the TIG hot wire process with no detrimental impact on quality whatsoever. Using two tungsten electrodes and two welding wires for one weld pool, all of which can be controlled separately, makes it possible to obtain much higher welding speeds and deposition rates. This guarantees maximum productivity, especially for larger components.
