Alpha 2 Plasma Torch

Do you have a plasma cutting system that uses "high-frequency" arc starting, and are you unsatisfied (for any reason) with the torch that came with your plasma?

The Alpha 2 will replace almost any OEM plasma torch that uses "high-frequency" pilot arc starting. It is designed to cut with air, up to 70 AMPS. If you have an older machine that was designed to cut with nitrogen and CO2, it can now be economically converted to use "shop compressed air."

View a (partial) list of plasma systems which the Alpha 2 can replace.

The Alpha 2 comes in either a hand-torch or machine-torch configuration, with 20' or 40' leads. This plasma torch is available in a machine-torch (straight barrel) configuration, shielded or unshielded. The consumables are very inexpensive, and the torch is easy and inexpensive to maintain.

Unlike many torches, the Alpha 2 torch comes with built in "parts-in-place" safety feature. When the shield cap is removed, the machine CANNOT BE ENGAGED! There is no danger of the operator being accidentally shocked, while changing consumables.
