Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter

Description

Versa-Cut 40 Plasma Cutter easily slices through materials up to 3/8" thick.

Versa Cut 40-Amp Plasma Cutter

The Eastwood-designed plasma cutter is your smartest choice for making clean, fast cuts through steel, stainless steel or aluminum as thin as 24 gauge or as thick as 3/8-inch. Compared to mechanical cutting, our Versa Cut 40 Plasma Cutter works significantly faster and makes curved and intricate cuts more easily and precisely. This is our best all-around plasma cutter and will handle most auto restoration, fabrication or repair work. The power, portability and affordability make it an essential tool for those who need to quickly slice through metal parts.

**Due to the High Frequency start feature, we do not recommend using this machine on a CNC plasma table.**

The Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter Features:

  • Works with 110v or 220v AC input
  • 20' torch cable; 10' ground cable with clamp
  • Rated 40-amp output
  • Uses common consumables that are available at Eastwood or most welding supply stores
  • Backed by Eastwood's no-hassle 3-year warranty
Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter

Premium Metal Cutting Power

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. It can cut through 1/8-thick metal on 110v power, enough for thin-gauge sheet metal and light fabrication. This portable plasma cutter is lightweight as well, weighing just 36 pounds so you can easily bring it along or plug it into a generator.

Inverter technology offers superior arc stability and plasma cutting power. 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. With a duty cycle of 60 percent, this plasma cutter will cut at 40 amps for up to six minutes before it needs to cool. It also requires just 5 to 7 cfm of air at 60 psi, which can be supplied by common shop compressors. You can easily adjust the amperage and air pressure using the dials.

Application Tips

Eastwood Versa Cut 40 Amp Plasma Cutter Accessories

What is "Plasma Cutting"?

Plasma cutting tools utilize 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 work piece, converting the metal to molten slag. That high-velocity stream literally blows the molten metal away, leaving clean, precisely cut metal. With a 40-amp plasma cutter, you can do more in your body shop or race car garage.

Ready-to-Go Cutter

The Versa Cut 40 Plasma Cutter comes with Trafimet CB50 torch and 20-foot cable plus a 10-foot ground clamp assembly for safely getting around your work. It comes with our 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee and free tech support by phone, email or the Eastwood Garage. If you're a first-time plasma cutter user, check our accessory buyer's guide to see what else you'll need for safety and performance.

Safety Information

Always wear approved eye protection and gloves. Do not use around flammable materials. Do not open machine. There are no user-serviceable parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts great on thinner metal Works great but, wish I would have bought the Versa Cut 60.
Date published: 2021-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! Only used it once and it was easy to setup and worked perfectly.
Date published: 2021-07-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought it years ago! I ordered this on Friday and it was delivered on Saturday. There are great tools, there are awesome tools, then there are life changing tools. This is a life changing tool! Out of the box first time using one I decided to cut a five foot wide piece of 1/4 inch rusty oily plate that looked like somebody used a beaver to cut. Cut it quick and smooth with no hot pieces of metal flying back at me. Do yourself a favor when you’re setting up your shop and buy one of these first. You’ll save a bunch of money on tools you really aren’t going to need once you get this!

Questions & Answers

It says 3/8 max cut. Is that max clean cut or severance cut? If max clean cut what is the severance cut?

Asked by: SteelScorpio
The clean cut on the Plasma 40 is 1/4 inch to 5/16 inch thick and the severance cut would be 3/8 inch this to 716 inch thick. I personal have clean cut 3/8 pnch thick mild steel by slowing down the cut and moving smoothly along a solid guide bar.

Specs state "Infinite Settings".. It this JUST Wire Speed?? OR are the (welding) Amps also "infinitely" adjustable?? I had a Century 100 that had both amps and wire speed "infinitely adjustable". THIS feature made me a "real" MIG Welder!!

Asked by: Texas Charlie
The wire speed and amperage are both infinitely adjustable on the Eastwood MIG machines. I've had the MIG 175 for several years and it works great.

on the amp dial where do you set it at. Iam new with this machine. Ido have it plug in on 50amp plug

Asked by: john
The amperage dial on the Versa Cut 40 is a Variable Amperage Dial. You increase the Amperage according to the thickness of the metal you will be cutting. A setting of 20amps is good for cutting up to 1/8" or .125 inches thick. A setting of 40 amps is good for cutting up to 5/16" or .312 inches thick.

Does this have a drag torch or do you have to keep it off the working surface? 

Asked by: Drzman01
This does not have a drag tip. It can be used as one however you will burn through your consumables at a very fast rate. Ideally, this should be held about 1/4" off the surface once the arc is initiated.
