Thermal Dynamics Introduces Diameter PRO Cutting SystemApril 1, 2012
Thermal Dynamics, a Thermadyne brand, has added the Ultra-Cut 400 to its line of high precision automated plasma systems.
Joining the Ultra-Cut 100, Ultra-Cut 200 and Ultra-Cut 300, the Ultra-Cut 400 is designed to deliver 400 amps at 200 V at 100% duty cycle. It offers production piercing and cutting up to 2 inches on mild steel, stainless steel and 2-1/4 inch aluminum. New Ultra-Cool consumable parts technology delivers parts life at 400 amps with O2/Air. All Ultra-Cut systems include the Water Mist Secondary (WMS) process for cost effective precision cutting of nonferrous materials, the company said.
The Ultra-Cut line will also have two additional sets of dedicated robotic consumables. These new 15 and 30 amp XTremeLife consumables are designed to deliver high cut quality on thin gauge mild steel and increased parts life, the company said.
Thermal Dynamics has also introduced a new Diameter PRO technology with its XT-Series of CNC controls that are designed to deliver quality holes and reduce hole taper to a minimum. It was developed to optimize hole quality in mild steel on 10 gauge to 1 inch from a 1:1 diameter to thickness ratio and larger holes.
"Thermal Dynamics is offering seamless, integrated technology that optimizes the performance of plasma cutting," said Dirk Ott, Thermadyne Vice President of Global Plasma Automation. "Our new 400 amps O2 Ultra-cooled two-piece tip, for instance, gets cooled all the way to the orifice to provide the best cut quality over its complete life. This, plus the new 400 amps O2 electrode delivers parts life that was not possible before on high current applications."
