Product highlights

  • Cutting current: 15-40 A
  • Duty cycle 60 %
  • Cutting capacity up to 12 mm
  • Digital menu navigation
  • 2 T / 4 T

In addition to a classic rotary knob for the compressed air, the control panel also has a digital menu where you can adjust all other parameters of the plasma cutter. The selected air pressure is clearly displayed on the pressure gauge, and the current strength can be precisely adjusted using the LED display. In addition, you can select 2-stroke or 4-stroke mode and control the gas flow by pushing the appropriate buttons.

For plasma cutting with air pressure, you can choose a cutting current of up to 40 A. With a duty cycle of 60 percent, the welding current has a maximum performance of 40 A. If you turn the power down to 34 A, then you can weld without interruption. The long duty cycle is made possible by the device's optimum cooling system.

Depending on the metal, a cutting depth of 12 mm is possible. The 5.8 m long cable of the high-quality Trafimet S45 torch allows maximum freedom of movement during joint cutting such as metal cutting. With a working pressure of 3 to 4 bar, the cutting torch provides a consistent arc to reliably cut metal. You can choose the external compressor depending on the requirements and circumstances. Thus, the device proves to be very flexible and easy to transport.

The plasma cutter's arc is ignited by the contactless pilot arc. This enables you to cut metal mesh without the arc losing consistency or needing to be reignited. Once the cutting process is ended, the gas post-flow time ensures optimum cooling for the nozzle and minimizes oxidization. You can set the post-flow time exactly to between 0 and 50 seconds, depending on your needs.

The device is equipped with an overheat protection which is displayed on an LED diode. The protective function switches off the device if a malfunction occurs and the heat increases sharply. It is also activated when the duty cycle for the selected amperage is exceeded. The diode will light up and the plasma cutter will turn off. In both cases, the air cooling remains active. Once the device reaches a normal operating temperature, you can continue cutting your metal.

Although it's advisable to use a welding cart for transporting the device, the plasma cutter does have a practical handle with which it can be easily moved.

  • Duty cycle of 60% at 40 A
  • Modern digital menu navigation
  • Easily switch between 2- and 4-stroke modes
  • Ergonomically-shaped handle from Trafimet
  • Stable pilot arc is also suited for cutting metal mesh

Plasma Cutter - 40 A - digital - pilot arc

The plasma cutter Prolox 40 by Welbach combines digital precision with high-quality workmanship and components for optimum metal-cutting results. With its excellent performance values, this device is more than equipped to handle any demands in the workshop, on the building site or even in private use, wherever conductive metals like copper, steel, brass, stainless steel or aluminium are being worked.

IGBT

IGBT = insulated-gate bipolar transistor. IGBT is a bipolar transistor with an insulated gate electrode. This semi-conducting device is being increasingly used in power electronics because it combines the advantages of two transistor types: the easy controls of the field effect transistor and the fast switching and high breakdown voltage of the bipolar transistor. The IGBT also offers some robustness against short circuits because it limits the electrical continuity. IGBTs are a further development of MOSFET technology.

GAS/AIR CONNECTION

For plasma cutting, a gas is required with which the molten metal is blown away from the work surface. Compressed air is a common solution for this. For this purpose, the plasma cutter has a compressor connection.

EARTHING SYSTEM

On the back of every welding machine is a screw with an earthing mark. Before use, earth the unit via a cross-section cable, which must be at least 6 mm².

 
CUTTING TORCH CONNECTION

 

 
SUPPLY VOLTAGE

This device works with a 1-phase connection (230 V +/- 10 %).

 
GAS POST-FLOW TIME

The time after the weld is finished in which gas continues to flow from the torch; this cools the burner and protects the weld from oxidation.

 
2-STROKE

Start the weld by placing pressure on the torch button. Stop the process by releasing the button.

 
4-STROKE

By pressing the torch button the solenoid valve opens. allowing the gas to flow in. The gas pre-flow ignites the arc at the pre-set current. Releasing the burner button initiates a rise in the current to that of the pre-set welding current. The welding process stops once you press the burner button again.

PLASMA CUTTING

The plasma arc melts the metal and the kinetic energy of the compressed air blows the metal aside.

"2T / 4T" SELECTION SWITCH

Choose between the 2T and 4T mode.

 
DISPLAY

Shows the welding / cutting parameters.

 
OVERLOAD / FAULT LED

The LED light indicates overheating or a malfunction.

 
PRESSURE GAUGE (MANOMETER)

Shows the value of compressed air the compressor delivers to the plasma cutter. The plasma cutter has a pressure reducing valve which regulates the air pressure.

 
PILOT IGNITION

A pilot arc is ignited by pressing the torch's trigger. Thus, grates can be cut.
