Patented Gas Flow Technology
The shielding gas in the XP8 is put to work to improve the cooling effect of the torch neck and front end consumable parts. On entering the rear of the neck the gas is separated from the conduit to flow directly over heat sink fins contained in the copper conductor before emerging at the base of the tip adaptor to directly force cool the contact tip.
Extended Consumable Life Expectancy
Superior materials combined with stringent design and performance criteria have resulted in an entire range of consumables with dramatically improved life expectancy.
The neck and handle geometries have been designed to give a neutral wrist position when welding to reduce the risk of RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury).
The handle design is the most compact available and the handle grips are designed to prevent the torch slipping in the welders hand allowing him to relax his grip, further reducing strain. The knuckle joint and tapered support improve freedom of movement and give progressive support to the power cable allowing it to form a smooth curve into the handle and maximise wire feed.
