Flexible votlage plasma cutters

Paul Boughton
GYS Ltd, the French welding equipment and battery charger manufacturer, has launched the single phase 230V Plasma Cutter 21 and the flexible voltage 85 – 265V Plasma Cutter 31FV, two new lightweight industrial plasma cutters, both utilising inverter technology.

Both machines are designed to produce low intensity quality cuts, even on painted surfaces, without any distortion. The Plasma Cutter 21 is able to cut up to 4mm aluminium and copper as well as 6mm steel, stainless steel and cast iron sheets with the capability to cut 6mm steel and 4mm aluminium at speeds up to 15cm/min at 20A. The Plasma Cutter 31FV is able to cut 8mm aluminium and copper as well as up to 10mm steel, stainless steel and cast iron sheets. It can cut 10mm steel and 8mm aluminium at 9cm/min at 30A.

They are designed for industrial maintenance and car body repair work as well as on-site work. With the GYS ‘Pilot Arc’ system on both machines, the arc starts without any contact with the sheet being cut making them easy to use. Starting without any HF avoids any electromagnetic interference (phones, computers radios, etc).

The Plasma Cutter 31FV features both PFC (Power Factor Correction) and FV (Flexible Voltage) technology which enables it to be used with either 110V (32A) or 230V (16A) or any voltage in the range 85-265V and with PFC technology it can be used with a power generator and also with long extension leads without any reduction in the performance of the machine. It also has re-enforced protection for use with generators and has been over voltage tested up to 400V.

Both machines have IP23 protection against rain and dust impregnation and are supplied with an air cooled torch and 4m hose equipped with a safety trigger to avoid any accidental starting.

Options include a Compass kit for circular cutting and a wheeled trolley for maximum operator convenience.
