Powerful, Portable Plasma CutterApril 27, 2020
Esab introduced at FABTECH 2019 its Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 40 manual plasma cutting system, successor to the Cutmaster 42. Designed for light construction, mechanical contracting and maintenance/repair applications, to name a few, it weighs 22 lb., has the flexibility to use 115 to 230-V primary power and delivers a rated output of 40 A at 40-percent duty-cycle. On 230-V primary power, it delivers a recommended cut and pierce capacity on 1⁄2-in.-thick steel and can sever steel to 1 in. thick. On 115-V primary power, it delivers a recommended cut and pierce on 3⁄8-in.-thick steel. To use 115 V simply requires connecting the supplied 115-V adapter to the hardwired 230-V plug. It comes with the SL60 1Torch with 20-ft. torch lead and a torch connection that enables an additional 25 ft. of torch lead.
