Thermal Dynamics’s Ultra-Cut 130 XT high-precision plasma power source has a cutting output of 130 amps at 100 percent duty cycle and is optimized for piercing and cutting 3/4 in. steel, stainless and aluminum. The system cuts 3/4 in. steel at 52 ipm and 1/2 in. steel at 85 ipm. It has a maximum cut and pierce capacity of 1 1/2 in. The new 130-amp XT torch features the SpeedLok consumables cartridge, which allows users to change consumables in seconds. An improved torch head alignment reduces variations between cut sides for better tolerances.
