Portable Powercut cutting systems save time and costESAB is adding two new models to its range of PowerCut manual cutting packages. The lightweight portable PowerCut 900 and 1600 packages make cutting easier and more economical thanks to design features that simplify operation, reduce set-up time and enhance consumable life.

The PowerCut models are claimed to offer the highest speeds and thickness capabilities in their class, as well as high duty cycles, for outstanding productivity and performance. Through a combination of long parts life, high speeds and a simple torch design, they are said to give the lowest cost per metre of cut of any machine in their price class.

Each machine's power source is contained within a durable, damage-resistant external housing that is also resistant to corrosion and the weather. Sensitive internal electronics are suspended from an aluminium frame and insulated from shock and vibration. Silicone-sealed switches are also immune to corrosion and dust/dirt ingress.

A quick-disconnect torch provides for easy dismantling for storage, repairs or replacement by a mechanised torch. A digital readout shows the exact pressure or current, as well as error codes to assist in troubleshooting and reducing downtime.

Blow back 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 and grate cutting - and adapts the machine's operation accordingly.

Additional features include a side-mounted automatic fan control that allows the fan to run only when necessary to conserve energy. 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-and-play mechanised option transforms the manual cutting system into a powerful mechanised system for a gantry machine.
