- Eastwood Versa-Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter
Can the Versa Cut 40 be used for gouging? If so are there special consumables available, and what settings should be used?
Do these Plasma Cutters have supplied air moisture limit? Is there a need or requirements to run any input air thru a desiccant filter? I hear Plasma Consumables are VERY sensitive to air that is not DRY. Anyone?
I am wondering is this a HF start or a pilot arc start set up?
I have a 8 gal husky air compressor, oil lubricated, with an air delivery of 5 scfm @ 40 psi or 4 scfm @ 90 psi. Will it sustain the versa cut 40?
If the air pressure on this machine is internally regulated to be a constant 60psi, why is there an adjuster knob on the front?
With my 40 Amp Versa Cutter I received a plastic tube with steel ball inside. On the side it's marked CB 50 and CB50P. Now I know this is an air flow device but were does it connect?
what amperage does it take to operate 115 or 220 efficiently /
Just picked up the plasma cutter and setting it up. It is very easy. Can you please tell me what the tube with a ball is that is in the bag of consumables?
Eastwood Versa-Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter
Item #12740 Brand: Eastwood
Versa-Cut 40 Plasma Cutter easily slices through materials up to 3/8" thick.
- Works with 110v or 220v AC input
- 20' torch cable; 10' ground cable with clamp
- Rated 40-amp output
- Backed by Eastwood's no-hassle 3-year warranty
Our Eastwood-designed plasma cutter is your smartest choice for making clean, fast cuts through steel, stainless or aluminum as thin as 24-gauge, or as thick as 3/8". Compared to mechanical cutting, our Versa-Cut 40 Plasma Cutter works significantly faster, and makes curved and intricate cuts more easily and precisely. Inverter technology offers superior arc stability and plasma cutting power using either 110 or 220 volts, making this a portable unit that is also light weight. A built-in pilot arc system allows for instant arc striking and ease of use when cutting rusty material and expanded metal. The internal moisture separator helps to ensure clean dry air gets to the torch to give you consistent results.
This innovative, affordable, plasma cutter was designed and developed by Eastwood's own R&D staff, and tested in-house on the same type of real-life projects you'll use it for. It doesn't matter where you need to work, because this plasma cutter's voltage-sensing technology lets you use either a 110v or 220v outlet with our adapter cord.
What is "Plasma Cutting"? Plasma cutting utilizes a high-velocity jet of ionized gas (plasma) that conducts electricity from the torch of the plasma cutter to your metal workpiece. That directed plasma stream (about 30,000 degrees F) heats the workpiece, converting the metal to molten slag. That high-velocity stream literally blows the molten metal away, leaving clean, precisely cut metal.
**Due to the High Frequency start feature of this machine, we do not recommend using this machine on a CNC plasma table.**
