Optimized productivity and reduced operating costs

  • Significantly reduced operating costs than previous generation technology
  • Increased cut speeds on thicker materials
  • Dramatic improvement in consumable life on mild steel applications
  • Thicker piercing capability than competitive plasma systems

Engineered system optimization

XPR is engineered to deliver the highest quality cuts and optimal system performance automatically.  Advanced power supply technology delivers highly responsive, rapid system feedback, and automatically intervenes to eliminate events that negatively impact system efficiency and consumable life.

XPR’s Arc response technologyTM provides automatic torch and ramp-down error protection. Sensors in the power supply deliver refined diagnostic codes and significantly enhanced system monitoring information that reduces troubleshooting time and provides proactive system maintenance data for improved system optimization.

  • Increases consumable life 3 times that of competitor’s systems by eliminating the impact of ramp down errors
  • Reduces the impact of catastrophic electrode blowouts which can damage the torch at high current levels

Ease of use

  • Intuitive operation and automatic monitoring redefine ease of use
  • Full control of all functions and settings via the CNC
  • Automatic system monitoring and specific troubleshooting codes for improved maintenance and service prompts
  • EasyConnect™ torch lead and one hand torch-to-receptacle connection for fast and easy change-outs
  • QuickLock™ electrode for easy consumable replacement
  • WiFi in power supply can connect to mobile devices and LAN for multiple system monitoring and service

Better for the environment, too!

The XPR300 system reduces consumable use, energy and the carbon footprint.

  • 64% less consumable copper material is used per foot of cut
  • System is 99.5% recyclable and packaging is 100% recyclable
  • The carbon impact of magnetics is 77% lower than its predecessor
  • 62% higher power-to-weight ratio and 14% faster cuts
