Maximum productivity

  • Finish jobs faster with cut speeds five times greater than oxyfuel on 12 mm (1/2”) mild steel
  • Superior cut and gouge quality let you spend less time on grinding and edge preparation
  • 100% duty cycle maximizes your cutting time
  • Multiple, easy-to-use torch styles let you tackle a wide variety of jobs using the same system

Easy-to-use for cutting and gouging

  • No need to change the air pressure – Smart Sense™ technology ensures that it is always correctly set
  • SpringStart™ technology ensures consistent starting and a more reliable torch
  • Drag cut at full output with a patented shield that reduces dross buildup for smoother cutting

Lower operating costs

  • Consumable life up to four times longer than other systems in this amperage range
  • Electrode end-of-life detection protects the torch and workpiece from damage by automatically stopping power when the electrode is overused
