Hypertherm has announced that its Duramax™ torch series now is available for upgrade on its Powermax1000® and Powermax1250® plasma systems.
The torches use a new Conical Flow™ nozzle and spring electrode to help increase consumable life up to 55 percent, according to the company. They are designed with the Easy Torch Removal (ETR) connection, enabling switching from the older torch to the new in a few seconds. The new, patent-pending Spring Start™ design eliminates moving parts within the torch.
The torches are available in 75-degree hand torch and 15-in., full-length machine torch models. The 15-in. torch can be converted into a 6-in., short-barreled machine torch for robotic and pipe cutting applications.
