ESAB has introduced two new models in its Powercut line of manual cutting packages.

The lightweight portable Powercut 900 and 1600 packages are designed to make cutting easier and more economical due to design features that simplify operation, reduce setup time and enhance consumable life.

The Powercut models are said to offer the highest speeds and thickness capabilities in their class, as well as high duty cycles.

Through a combination of long parts life, high speeds and simple torch design, they give the lowest cost per metre of cut of any machine in their price class, claims ESAB.

The power source is contained within a durable, damage-resistant external housing that is also corrosion and weather resistant.

The sensitive internal electronics are suspended from the aluminium frame and insulated from shock and vibration.

Silicone-sealed switches are also immune to corrosion and dust/dirt infiltration.

A quick-disconnect torch disconnects from the machine simply, allowing easy dismantling for storage, repairs or replacement by a mechanised torch.

A digital readout shows the exact pressure or amperage, as well as help codes to assist in troubleshooting and reduce downtime.

Blowback technology eliminates high-frequency start ups that can disrupt CNC controls and nearby computer systems.

An automatic function senses which cutting mode is in operation – normal cutting, gouging or grate cutting – and adapts machine operation accordingly.

Additional features include a side-mounted automatic fan control that allows the fan to run only when necessary to conserve energy and reduce ingested dust and dirt.

A built-in power-line conditioner protects against damage from power-line noise and spikes, even with poor-quality power.

The torch wrap and spare-parts kit holder allows convenient storage of the torch and spare parts in the consumables box.

The Powercut 900 cuts 22mm thicknesses and the 1600 cuts 38mm thicknesses.

A ‘plug n play’ mechanised option transforms the manual cutting system into a powerful mechanised system for a gantry machine.
