As we continue the celebration of Victor’s 100th Anniversary, we held a cutting contest while exhibiting at Skills USA, Kasas City. Each entrant was equipped with a Victor Journeyman cutting torch and an “I” beam to test their skills.

Michcel Tracz, Jr., Platt Technical High School, Milford, CT, took first place in Victor Technologies’ oxy-acetylene cutting contest at SkillsUSA 2013. Michcel’s winning time of 44.4 seconds beat the next competitor by 5.1 seconds. Victor Technologies district manager Kevin Showers, shown observing, noted that Michcel’s torch angle enabled gravity to help the slag run clear of the cutting path and reduce his cutting time. Michcel won a Victor Medalists 250 cutting system for demonstrating his skill, as did the second and third place winners.
