Hypertherm introduces XPR rotational torch sleeves
Hypertherm’s three new torch sleeves for XPR plasma cutting torches and lead sets allow the sets to remain axially fixed while the torch holding device rotates 360 degrees in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. This capability is meant to enhance torch lead life in high-flex applications.
The new sleeves — available in short, medium, and extended lengths — are ideal for bevel or 3D/robotic cutting applications when using either an XPR170 or XPR300 X-Definition Plasma system. Pre-sealed, high precision bearings reduce axial play by 90 percent and radial play by 81 percent while laboratory testing shows ISO-9013 Range 2 cut quality on thin mild steel and extended ISO Range 3 cuts on thicker metals.
Both X-Definition systems contain patent-pending processes like Vented Water Injection (VWI), plasma dampening, and Cool Nozzle technologies for squarer cut edges, markedly less angularity, and surface finish on non-ferrous metals like aluminum and stainless steel.
