Airgas Inc. has introduced a line of Radnor brand MasterCut plasma cutting torches, which can be used universally with all modes and power supplies and offer an improved and simplified plasma cutting solution.

The Radnor brand MasterCut line consists of the MC60 handheld torch for light and medium cutting, as well as the MC100 available in manual and mechanised versions for medium and heavy-duty cutting. The torches and related Radnor brand MasterCut consumables are available at more than 800 Airgas retail stores nationwide.

David Levin, Airgas vice president of hardgoods, commented, “We introduced this new Radnor product family to provide America's fabricators with a simplified and improved plasma cutting solution. By using a series of Advanced Torch Connector (ATC) adapters for each specific power supply, the MasterCut torches and consumables will dramatically reduce the number of replacement torches and consumables that fabricators need to stock for their operations.”

The MC60 operates at 20 to 60 amps and feature ergonomic torch handles for operator comfort and control, while the MC100 operates at 30 to 120 amps and is available as a hand torch or a straight-line machine torch. All 3 options work with ATC Receptacle Adapters and ATC Lead Extensions that work with ATC Torch Adapter Kits for a wide variety of power supplies.

The MasterCut torches and related accessories, featuring Thermal Dynamics patented technology, are on display at Airgas’ booth at the 2007 FABTECH International & AWS Welding Show being held on the 11th-14th November 2007 at McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois..
