Lincoln Electric, a leading supplier of robotic arc welding systems, has released the Tomahawk 375 Air plasma cutting system. This automated system is portable and can be deployed for service operations, demolition, small construction sites, on-site maintenance tasks, HVAC work and rental applications.
The Tomahawk 375 Air features an internal air compressor and it does not require an external air supply. This system utilizes 208 or 230 volt single phase 60 Hz of input power.
The machine includes sustained output control for focusing the plasma arc for cutting the suggested severance thickness of around 5/16 inch, with 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch as maximum and minimum thicknesses.
The system generates an output power in the range between 10 and 25 amps. The 375 Air is evaluated at 90 V, 25 amps and a duty cycle of 35%. These machines are developed for cutting various metals including mild steel, aluminum and stainless steel.
The Tomahawk 375 Air’s Touch Start System offers consistent initiation of the plasma arc at low frequency whereas the rapid arc restrike ability of the system assures high-speed cutting via gaps and stretched metal. The front-panel purge control of the system helps in regulating the flow of air without instigating a plasma arc. The life term of the consumables can be extended by means of new nozzle and electrode, resulting in reduced cost factor and minimum operating temperature.
Further, the Lincoln Electric Parts-in-Place system of the cutting machine ensures additional protection by checking correct installation of consumables and torch. The welder/ generators like Ranger and Vantage can be utilized to drive this unit.
Other standard features of the Tomahawk 375 Air are integrated internal compressor, air regulator and pressure gauge, LC25 plasma cutting torch, cables, water separator, handy shoulder strap and spare expendable parts.
