New plasma cutting consumables last longer and cut thickerWARNING: esab is launching its new cutmaster black series of enhanced performance Unrecognised tag ESAB is launching its new Cutmaster Black Series of enhanced performance {plasma cutting consumables}, which extend operating life by 60 per cent compared with standard life electrodes. They are featured on the SL60QD 1Torch, which comes with the Cutmaster 60i handheld air plasma cutting system. Coupled with internal enhancements on the Cutmaster 60i, the new electrode design increases the unit’s rated cut and piercing capacity to 20mm, a 16.6 per cent improvement. The Cutmaster 60i can sever metal up to 38mm.

Kris Scherm, Global Manual Plasma Business & Product Director, ESAB says: “At 16.8kg, the Cutmaster 60i already offered the best power-to-weight ratio on the market. With the Cutmaster Black Series consumables, this 60-amp unit is even more of a cutting beast. With Cutmaster Black Series consumables, users will enjoy lower overall operating costs through extended electrode life and obtain more quality cuts per electrode.”

For users who want the flexibility to connect a Cutmaster 60i to a cutting table for semiautomated air plasma cutting, ESAB now offers the MechPak mechanised package. MechPak comes with everything users need to get started, including an SL100 mechanised 1Torch with a 7.6m or 15.2m cable, remote pendant, lead with ATC Torch Connection and consumables.

Scherm says: “The MechPak features a power connector for a start/stop trigger integrated with the ATC Torch Connection. Typically applications would include pairing the Cutmaster 60i and MechPak with an ESAB Miggytrac or Railtrac tractor for semiautomatic cutting, beveling or plasma gouging.”
