New Plasma Cutting and Gouging System

Posted by Irina Tabakina

Victor Thermal Dynamics launched an improved PAK 200i manual plasma cutting and gouging system, which has the capacity to satisfy the most demanding manual plasma application requirements. The system delivers 100% duty cycle at 200 Amps, is capable of hand cutting up to 2 ¾” (70mm) on mild steel, as well as 10 ipm (254 mm/min) on 2” (51 mm) carbon steel, and will remove up to 25 lbs. (11.3 kg) of carbon steel per hour.  The PAK 200i now shares the same case and common platform with the company’s other 200-amp products. Exclusive to the PAK 200i, and particularly useful for gouging applications, is the Tip Saver Plus feature. With accidental tip-to-work piece contact, the current will fold back to 35 Amps to ensure that the tip is not damaged, dramatically extending tip life. The PAK 200i system comes standard with the PCH 200 handheld torch, featuring a 70- or 90-degree torch head angle.
