Forney 317 – 115FI Plasma Cutter with Built-In Compressor, 120-Volt, 12 Amp
The Forney 317 115FI Plasma Cutter with Built-In Compressor, 120-Volt Plasma Cutter uses electrical arc and compressed air to chop steel, aluminum and other conductive metals. With convenient 120 Volt input power requirements you’ll plug it in anyplace! The built-in compressor is a pleasant feature that gets rid of the desire for an air compressor or cylinders. Our Drag torch technology permits you to move (drag) the torch right away around the metal surface for more precise cuts. This unit is straightforward to make use of and operate. For safety purposes we’ve also included thermal overload for surge protection and post-waft air cooling for longer consumable and system life.
What form of metal can I cut?
- Mild Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Copper or Brass
- Cast Iron
- All electrically conductive metals
Advantages of a Forney Plasma Cutter
Better cut quality and no more dross will provide you with a smaller warmth effected zone and higher cut angle. This unit offers greater productivity, cutting and piercing times which can be as much as 8.5 times faster than oxy-fuel. Lower price per part, at the same time as plasma operating costs have a tendency to be higher than oxy-fuel, operators make up for the additional cost by increasing the linear feet that may be cut in an hour, thus reducing the fee per foot to chop especially over the length of the project. Higher profitability with lower costs per part equals more profits. It is more straightforward to make use of for drag cutting, no gases to keep watch over and no flames to set. The plasma cutter is more flexible when making cuts and cuts electrically conductive subject matter at the same time as oxy-fuel can cut best mild steel. Very good for the next cutting types: Beveling, Gouging, Piercing, Template & Circle Guide, Cutting, Freehand Cutting, Marking Cuts and Drop Cutting. Improved safety, no compressed gases and no flammable gases.
The plasma cutting process, as used within the cutting of electrically conductive metals, utilizes this electrically conductive gas to transfer energy from an electrical power source through a plasma cutting torch to the fabric being cut. The elemental plasma arc cutting system is composed of an influence supply, an arc starting circuit and a torch. These system components give you the electrical energy, ionization capability and process regulate that may be important to supply top quality, highly productive cuts on quite a few different materials.
Factors to imagine when deciding on Plasma System
How thick of metal will it cut?
A. Plasma cutters utilize a capacity performance rating system allowing the user to more easily make a selection the right kind machine for the applying. In most cases, the upper the output amperage, the thicker the fabric that may be cut with a plasma system utilized in hand-held applications. This machine will cut 1/8″ and can severe 1/4″. Cut speeds of no less than 20 inches per minute IPM.
What form of metal will I be working with?
A. The plasma cutting process is perfect for the cutting of electrically conductive metals such as mild steel, chrome steel, aluminum, copper, brass and other electrically conductive metals. The Forney 115FI is designed to accomplish to specification on any of those work piece materials.
What form of power supply do I’ve?
A. In most cases, plasma systems under 20 amps can also be run on usual residential, shop, farm or generator power. The Forney 115FI has a 120 VAC / 20 A, 60Hz input power requirement. What are my compressed air or gas options? A. Conventional plasma cutting such as that offered within the Forney 115FI in most cases use a single gas (on a regular basis air) that both cools and produces the plasma. The Forney 115FI features a built-in piston air compressor getting rid of the desire for shop air or compressed gases.
