Usage Notes

  • Cuts metal via plasma arc
  • Eye protection must be worn at all times, (welding helmet or oxy/ace goggles suffice)
  • Leather gloves/sleeves required
  • Place workpiece on a raised surface, do not cut flush against floor or workbench
  • Attach grounding clamp, ensure good contact (no paint)
  • Set cutting power & air pressure according to workpiece thickness
  • NEVER cut without air supply at sufficient pressure, requires airflow for cooling
  • DO NOT make contact with tip to workplace, this melts the tip.
  • Tips gradually wear out, are consumable.


  • 3ph input
  • 20-90A output
  • Requires high volume compressed air supply
