IEC 60974-7 pdf download Arc welding equipment – Part 7: Torches
1 scope
This part of lEC 60974 specifies safety and construction requirements for torches for arcwelding and allied processes.
In this part of lEC 60974, a torch consists of the torch body, the cable-hose assembly andother components.
This part of lEC 60974 is not applicable to electrode holders for manual metal arc welding ortorches for air-arc cutting/gouging.
NOTE In this part of lEC 60974, the terms “torch”and “gun”are interchangeable.For convenience “torch” hasbeen used in the following text.

NOTE Additional terminology is given in Annex A.
device that conveys all services necessary to the arc for welding,cutting or allied processes(for example, current, gas, coolant, wire electrode)
torch with a handle substantially perpendicular to the torch body
torch body
main component to which the cable-hose assembly and other components are connected
part designed to be held in the operator’s hand
gas nozzle
component at the exit end of the torch directing the shielding gas around the arc and over the weld pool
non-consumable electrode
arc welding electrode which does not provide filler metal
wire electrode
solid or tubular filler wire which conducts welding current
contact tip
replaceable metal component fixed at the front end of the torch, which transfers the welding current to, and guides, the wire electrode
cable-hose assembly
flexible assembly of cables and hoses, and their connecting elements, that delivers all necessary supplies to the torch body
manual torch
torch held and guided by the operator’s hand during its operation
mechanically guided torch
torch fixed to, and guided by, a mechanical device during its operation
air-cooled torch
torch cooled by the ambient air and, where appropriate, by the shielding gas
liquid-cooled torch
torch cooled by the circulation of a cooling liquid
motorized torch
torch incorporating means to supply motion to the wire electrode
