Designed around today’s production environment, modern welding techniques and equipment, the XP8 sets new standards in design, innovation and performance. Reduced downtime - productivity is the key, with the XP8’s industry-leading 80% duty cycle on air-cooled torches keep welding for longer.
Exceptional cooling - our patented gas flow technology uses the shielding gas to force cool the contact tip.
Superior ergonomics - designed to give a neutral wrist position and reduced RSI risks.
Extended consumable life span - contact tips last twice as long as our competitors.
Amperages and duty cycles alone are arbitrary measures of a torches capability. For a more accurate appreciation wire type, gas type, flow rate and open circuit voltage must all be taken into consideration.
The XP8 is rated in Amps as a guideline but the Kilowattage requirement of a given application provides a far more accurate method for calculating torch selection. Kilowattage represents the total power rating required and is calculated as follows:
