ESAB Introduces Its Most Compact, Economical PowerCut(TM) Plasma Cutting Package

FLORENCE, SC - ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has expanded its line of PowerCut(TM) Plasmarc(TM) cutting packages with the PowerCut(TM) 650. The most compact and economical machine in the line, the 40 amp, 40% duty cycle PowerCut 650 offers a 5/8" cutting capacity and 3/4" severing capacity for carbon steel, stainless & aluminum.

Like all PowerCut machines, the 650 is designed for rugged durability and cut-anywhere convenience. Its super-strong fiberglass composite case stands up to "abuse" and harsh weather conditions, which makes it ideal for construction sites, rental fleets and other tough conditions. The compact size and rounded shape of the PowerCut-650 allows it to fit through tight spaces such as manholes. It weighs just 53 pounds. Also important for on-site use, this machine operates even on poor power lines.

The PowerCut 650 provides outstanding cutting performance in a value-priced machine. It offers many of the features of the larger-capacity PowerCut machines, including drag or standoff cutting, template following, trigger lock-in for operator comfort and adjustable output (tailors current to the material being cut).

This newest addition to the PowerCut line is equipped with the PT-31XLPC torch, which is easy to use and economical to maintain. The PT-31XLPC operates with ESAB's patented "extended shape" nozzles for better visibility and longer life. A new torch cable, with smooth exterior, is designed to prevent snagging and last longer. The PowerCut 650/PT-31XLPC system features a quick-connect torch switch plug and offers high frequency starting, so it starts easily through paint.

One of the world's largest manufacturers of welding and cutting products, ESAB is a world leader in plasma cutting. Ever since they introduced the Plasmarc process in 1957, ESAB has continued to expand their product line to offer the industry's most advanced capabilities, as well as a complete selection of equipment for virtually any plasma cutting and gouging application. Today, the Plasmarc line ranges from highly compact, portable machines to heavy duty industrial systems.
