Thermal Dynamics® Adds New CUTMASTER(TM) 81 to 1Series(TM) Air Plasma Cutting Systems Family
St. Louis - March 1, 2004 - Thermal Dynamics® has added the new CUTMASTER(TM) 81 air plasma cutting system to its recently launched CUTMASTER 1Series(TM) air plasma cutting systems family.
The CUTMSTER 81 is equipped with the revolutionary 1Torch(TM) plasma torch and patent pending ATC(TM) (Advanced Torch Connector) quick disconnect. This means the CUTMASTER 81 has the same great benefits of all 1Torch Replacement Torches - the operator can switch torches quickly between hand and machine torch applications, replace damaged equipment in an instant and add or remove lead extensions to match job requirements. It also means standardization of torches, reduced consumable parts inventories, operations flexibility and improved cutting performance.
The CUTMASTER 81 has easy-to-use operator-friendly features, is an excellent performer and offers excellent value. It is rated for a 1-inch (25mm) maximum cut capacity and is suitable for cutting materials including aluminum, stainless steel, and mild steel in applications ranging from construction to fabrication to manufacturing. At 60 amps of cutting power, the CUTMASTER 81 is ideally suited for metal fabricators with high volume production cutting work. The new 1 Series start technology offers an advantage as it avoids any potential interference problems with electronic equipment - important for customers who want to use CUTMASTER units with their computer controlled cutting tables.
CUTMASTER 81 systems are tough, reliable and built to stand up to rugged environments. Wraparound roll bars provide excellent protection during transport and while on the job. An advanced powder coat finish provides scratch and mar resistance to the case surface. The CUTMASTER 81 is IP-23C and CSA/NTRL/C certified. It is backed by a three-year warranty (one-year torch warranty).
