Cutmaster40 websizeClick image to enlargeThe Cutmaster 40 manual plasma cutting system Thermal Dynamics, an ESAB brand, has the flexibility to use 115V – 230V primary power and delivers a rated output of 40 amps at 40 per cent duty-cycle. The power source weighs 22 lbs.

On 230V primary, it delivers a recommended cut and pierce capacity on 1/2-in. steel and can sever steel up to 1 in. On 115V primary, it delivers a recommended cut and pierce on 3/8-in. steel—simply connect its 115V adapter to the hardwired 230V plug. The unit is designed for motor sports, mobile fabrication, light construction, HVAC, metal/building/roofing, mechanical contracting, maintenance/repair, farm/ranch, metal art and DIY applications.

“Head-to-head evaluations against leading competitors confirmed that the Cutmaster 40 delivers superior cutting performance on both 115V and 208-240V primary power,” says Kris Scherm, Global Manual Plasma Business & Product Director, ESAB. “You don’t always need that extra punch of power or duty cycle, but it’s there when users need it to work harder or take on bigger jobs.”

The Cutmaster 40’s rugged, weather-proof, three-handle case protects the unit, especially during transportation in a job box or back of a work truck. The handles make it easier to move in tight quarters, as well as help organize the cables in transit.

Included is the proven SL60 1Torch with 16-ft. torch lead, which is up to 4 ft. longer than most competitive torches. Thermal Dynamic’s ATC torch connection allows for an additional 25-ft. of torch lead or the SL60QD™ 1Torch, which offers a quick disconnect feature enabling selective replacement of either the torch handle assembly or torch. The work cable uses a standard 50mm Dinse connection, while the robust work clamp creates a strong electrical connection.

“We designed the torch and work cables to disconnect in seconds, which improves cable management when moving the unit,” adds Scherm. “Also, because these items are often used in tough industrial environments, things can be damaged, so the quick disconnect design makes them easily replaceable.”

The SL60 1Torch comes with the Cutmaster Black Series electrodes, which offer 60 per cent more operating life.

ESAB backs the Cutmaster 40 with a four-year warranty on the power supply and a one-year warranty on the 1Torch.
