Hypertherm XPR rotational torch sleeves
Hypertherm, a US-based manufacturer of industrial cutting systems and software, is introducing three torch sleeves for XPR plasma-cutting torches and lead sets. The sleeves allow the torch and lead sets to remain axially fixed while the torch-holding device rotates 360° in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction. This capability enhances torch lead life in high-flex applications.
The sleeves — available in short, medium and extended lengths — are suitable for bevel or 3D/robotic cutting applications when using either an XPR170 or XPR300 X-Definition Plasma system. The sleeves include several engineering advances. An outside diameter of 76 mm allows for an increased wall thickness and eliminates compression caused by clamping. Pre-sealed, high-precision bearings reduce axial play by 90% and radial play by 81%. This keeps out dirt and other particulates associated with plasma cutting and extends the life of the sleeve and lead system.
When used with Hypertherm’s robotic/bevel lead sets, the rotational sleeve will afford users a robust industrial solution in applications requiring frequent rotational flexing when cutting with an XPR170 and XPR300.
