Thermal Dynamics Automation has introduced the Ultra-Cut 130 XT high-precision plasma power source and new 130-amp XT torch and consumables. With a cutting output of 130 amps at 100% duty cycle, the system is designed for piercing and cutting 3/4-in. steel, stainless, and aluminum. Compared to the previous 100 XT model, it offers 30% more power, 20% faster cutting speed, and 50% longer parts life at 130 amps on mild steel.
The system cuts 3/4-in. steel at 52 IPM and 1/2-in. steel at 85 IPM. It has a maximum cut and pierce capacity of 1-1/2 in. The torch features the manufacturer’s patented SpeedLok consumables cartridge, which allows users to change consumables in seconds. Improved torch head alignment helps reduce variations between cut sides for improved tolerances.
