FLORENCE, South Carolina -- ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced the PowerCut 900 manual cutting package. The 60-amp PowerCut 900 cuts 7/8 in. (22 mm) and severs 1-1/4 in. (32 mm).

Through a combination of long parts life, high speeds and simple torch design, the PowerCut series offers the lowest cost per foot of cut of any machine in its price class, according to the company.

PowerCut 900 also offers a Tool-less Quick Disconnect Torch that disconnects from the machine without the use of wrenches or special tools, allowing easy disassembly for storage, repairs, or replacement or to attach a mechanized torch for mechanized applications. Blow Back Technology eliminates high frequency startups that can disrupt CNC controls and nearby computer systems. PowerCut 900 also features an automatic Mode Selection function that senses which cutting mode is in operation (Normal Cutting, Gouging, and Grate Cutting) and adapts accordingly.

Additional features include a side-mounted automatic fan control that allows the fan to run only when necessary to conserve energy and reduce ingested dust and dirt; a built-in power line conditioner that protects against damage from power line noise and spikes; a torch wrap and spare parts kit holder; and an option that transforms the manual cutting system into a mechanized system for a gantry machine.
