Victor Oxy-Fuel Torches Designed for Easier Use
Victor Technologies has launched its Victor 400 Series of oxy-fuel torches. The tool incorporates innovative handle and cutting attachment designs that offer better ergonomics, a clearer view of the cutting path, visual cues for easier use and enhanced safety, the company says.
The new torch is available in medium- and heavy-duty models and also sold as part of the Medalist 250 and Medalist 350 outfits. Outfits include the torch handle, cutting attachment, welding tip, G Series regulators and hoses.
The contoured handle uses an engineered zinc-aluminum alloy called Zamak that has three times its tensile strength of brass, so it better resists deformation, the company says. To simplify use and increase precision, the 400 Series cutting attachment provides excellent line-of-sight visibility. Victor departed from its traditional tube-in-tube design to a sleeker three-tube design (oxy-fuel cutting requires three tubes, one each for fuel gas, pre-heat oxygen and cutting oxygen).
When sold as part of the Medalist 250 and 350 outfits, Victor’s new G Series regulator accompanies the 400 Series torch. G Series regulators use a combination of colors on the gauge face to provide clarity for reading needle position, while a scale and red tick mark indicate actual service pressure of the regulator. The G Series also uses ergonomic color-coded knobs to indicate gas type and for better comfort when adjusting gas pressure.
