Hypertherm, the US-based manufacturer of industrial cutting systems and software with representation world-wide, is now offering consumable starter kits for its XPR X-Definition plasma systems (www.hypertherm.com
Available with or without a torch for mild steel and non-ferrous cutting applications, these kits include a variety of consumables to allow for cutting at different amperages, using all of the gas process types supported by the XPR170 and XPR300 systems.
They contain several patent-pending technologies designed to improve consumable life and cut quality. Examples include Cool Nozzle and Arc Response Technology; the latter protects consumables from the negative impact of ramp-down errors (a regular occurrence in real-life cutting), thereby allowing XPR consumables to last up to three-times longer than those on previous-generation systems.
Furthermore, the XPR kits have been designed for ease of use.
For example, the EasyConnect feature allows operators to quickly plug the torch lead into the torch connect console without the use of tools, while a patent-pending QuickLock electrode gives quarter-turn tightening to further reduce set-up time.
Another new design feature is a quick-change torch that enables an operator to change torches with just one hand.
Martin Geheran, product manager for plasma torches and consumables, said: “Whether you are cutting mild steel, stainless steel or aluminium, these new starter kits will make it easy for XPR customers to get all of the consumables they need in one convenient kit.
“We think they will also enjoy the convenience of these kits that come with a torch, as it gives them the option of having a second torch — or even multiple torches — pre-loaded with consumables for even faster change-overs.”
