With simple, twist-on consumable installation, and convenient power and amperage adjustment controls on handheld models, SmartSYNC™ torches for Hypertherm’s new Powermax65/85/105 SYNC™ plasma systems allow the operator to change consumables and applications without returning to the power supply. This reduces consumable change time to about 10 seconds and automatically sets the system for the cartridge, minimizing downtime, troubleshooting, waste and training time.
For handheld cutting and gouging jobs
The time-saving SmartSYNC torch controls allow the operator to adjust the amperage on the fly and change consumables and applications without returning to the power supply. SmartSYNC 75° and 15° hand torches are well-suited for a variety of applications such as gouging, fine feature cutting, extended reach cutting, and flush cutting. The ergonomic design of the 75° torch is perfect for normal cutting, while the 15° torch directs heat away from the operator during heavy gouging and enables cutting overhead or in hard-to-reach areas.
For machine jobs
SmartSYNC torches with the Hypertherm cartridge automatically set the correct amperage and operating mode, eliminating setup errors. SmartSYNC full-length machine torches work with a wide variety of CNC cutting tables, track cutters, and pipe-cutters. Mini-machine torches are perfectly suited for lighter tables and pipe-cutting operations where the full-length torch is too long.
For robotic jobs
The light weight, small size, and built-in positioning features of SmartSYNC robotic/mini torches enable easy integration and operation with light robot arms. Optional clamps and teach tools speed up integration.
For extended reach cutting jobs
Hypertherm offers five new SmartSYNC long torches in two different lengths – 0.6m (2′) and 1.2 m (4′) – and two different torch head angles – 45° and 90° – for extended reach cutting jobs including skeleton cutting, scrapping, and demolition. Compared to the first-generation Duramax® Hyamp® long torch, these torches require 45% less lifting force to make the operator’s job easier, and they have gone through extensive design and testing to make them even more robust. A flexible lead also makes these torches more ergonomic and easier for the operator to maneuver.
