1. A welding system, comprising:

  • a first modular member comprising a first modular surface, wherein the first modular surface comprises one or more posts extending outwardly from the first modular surface, wherein the first modular surface further comprises one or more snaps, and wherein the first modular member comprises a torch cooler or a transport device;

    a second modular component comprising a second modular surface, wherein the second modular surface comprises a flange, and wherein the second modular component comprises a wire feeder or a rotating body;

    a welding power supply, the welding power supply comprising;

    power conversion circuitry configured to convert an input power to a welding power;

    a first housing surface, wherein the first housing surface comprises;

    one or more notches configured to receive the one or more posts extending outwardly from the first modular surface of the first modular member, wherein the one or more notches of the first housing surface are configured to engage the one or more posts of the first modular member, thereby securing the welding power source relative to the first modular member and limiting translational movement between the first housing surface and the first modular surface; and

    one or more engagement portions configured to engage the one or more snaps of the first modular surface of the first modular member; and

    a second housing surface disposed opposite the first housing surface, wherein the second housing surface includes a rim forming a channel configured to receive the flange of the second modular surface of the second modular component, wherein the second housing surface is configured to limit movement of the second modular component relative to the welding power supply when the second housing surface is mated with the second modular surface.
