Hypertherm has expanded its lineup of Duramax retrofit torches and consumables. The torches are approved for use on the Powermax1650, in addition to the Powermax1000 and Powermax1250. Also, a straight torch (HRTs) joins the previously released 75-degree, ergonomic hand torch (HRT) and convertible machine torch (MRT).
The straight torch, designed for handheld cutting, makes it easy to cut and gouge hard-to-reach areas, the company says. The angle keeps the molten metal and heat away from the user’s hand.
Three different torch styles are designed for 40- to 100-amp cutting and gouging with both 25-ft. and-50 ft. torch lead options for versatility. In addition, the retrofit torches offer improved durability, reliability and consumable life.
