Cutmaster 40 portable plasma cutter delivers more power and performance

cutmaster plasma cutter

Thermal Dynamics, an ESAB brand, has introduced the Cutmaster 40 manual plasma cutting system which is the successor model of the Cutmaster 42.

The power source weighs 22 pounds, has the flexibility to use 115 – 230V primary power and delivers a rated output of 40 amps at 40 percent duty-cycle or better.

On 230V primary, it delivers a recommended cut and pierce capacity on 1/2-inch steel and can sever steel up to 1 inch. On 115V primary, it delivers a recommended cut and pierce on 3/8-inch steel. To use 115V, simply connect the supplied 115V adapter to the hardwired 230V plug. The unit is designed for motor sports, mobile fabrication, light construction, HVAC, metal/building/roofing, mechanical contracting, maintenance/repair, farm/ranch, metal art and DIY applications.

The Cutmaster 40 features a rugged, weather-proof, three-handle case that better protects the unit, especially during transportation. The handles make it easier to move the unit in tight quarters, as well as help organize the cables when moving it.

The Cutmaster 40 comes with the proven SL60 1Torch with 16-foot torch lead, which is up to 4 feet longer than competitive torches. Further, because it uses Thermal Dynamics' ATC torch connection (standard on all Cutmaster units), users can connect an additional 25-foot length of torch lead or the SL60QD 1Torch, which offers a quick disconnect feature enabling selective replacement of either the torch handle assembly or torch leads at a lower cost than replacing both together (a necessity with one-piece torch/lead assemblies). The work cable uses a standard 50mm Dinse connection, while the robust work clamp creates a strong electrical connection.

The SL60 1Torch comes with the Cutmaster Black Series electrodes, which the company says extends operating life by up to 60 percent.
