[h5]Maximum Productivity[/h5]

  • Fast cut speeds: three times faster than oxy-fuel on 1/2″ (12 mm) mild steel.
  • Superior cut and gouge quality means less time spent on grinding and edge preparation.

[h5]Easy-to-Use for Cutting and Gouging[/h5]

  • Smart Sense™ technology automatically sets correct air pressure based on torch length and operating mode.
  • Handheld, straight machine and robotic torches for greater versatility and ease-of-use.
  • Wide voltage tolerance improves performance on motor generators and in low-line conditions.
  • Improved shield reduces dross buildup and enables smoother drag cutting for a better cut.

[h5]Built and Tested to Withstand the Harshest Conditions[/h5]

  • Duramax™ torches are designed for high impact and heat-resistance.
  • SpringStart™ technology ensures consistent starting and a more reliable torch.
  • Low maintenance for maximum uptime – it keeps on going.

[h5]Low Operating Cost[/h5]

  • Long consumable life for lower cost and more uptime.
  • Exclusive electrode end-of-life detection protects the torch and workpiece from damage by automatically stopping power when the electrode is overused.
  • High power efficiency lowers energy consumption.
