Victor® has launched its new 400 Series of oxy-fuel torches to meet the needs of end-users globally. The 400 Series is a two-piece torch that incorporates innovative handle and cutting attachment designs that offer better ergonomics, a clearer view of the cutting path, visual cues for easier use and enhanced safety. The 400 Series meets or exceeds performance and durability expectations of a Victor torch, the industry’s leading brand.

The 400 Series features a contoured,high-strength alloy torch handle that fits naturally in most operators’ hands.

Better Visibility

To simplify use and increase precision, the 400 Series cutting attachment provides excellent line-of-sight visibility. Victor accomplished this by departing from its traditional tube-in-tube design to a sleeker three-tube design.

The 400 Series uses a universal mixer design and mixes the gases in the head of the torch. Like all Victor torches, it enables operators to use one torch for all fuels simply by selecting the correct tips or attachment.

Victor®, a Victor Technologies brand, has launched its new 400 Series of oxy-fuel torches and G Series regulators to meet the needs of end-users globally. The 400 Series is a two-piece torch that incorporates innovative handle and cutting attachment designs that offer better ergonomics, a clearer view of the cutting path, visual cues for easier use and enhanced safety. The 400 Series is compatible with current 300 series consumables and accessories, and meets or exceeds performance and durability expectations of a Victor torch, the industry’s leading brand.

Victor400The 400 Series features a contoured, high-strength alloy torch handle that fits naturally in most operators’ hands. While lighter than a brass handle, the new handle better resists abuse, and it balances well when hoses and attachments are connected.

To simplify use, Victor color-coded and labeled the oxygen and fuel valves for instant identification and easier operation by indicating directions for open and closed valve positions.

“Until now, it was very difficult for an inexperienced worker to effectively and intuitively identify gas valves,” says John Henderson, Group Brand Manager, Victor Technologies. “The 400 Series torch provides operators with the visual acuity necessary for safe and effective oxy-fuel cutting, even if English isn’t their first language.”

Henderson notes that design changes to simplify use help companies cope with the retirement of skilled operators and need to hire younger, less-skilled workers or workers who speak English as a second language. The durability of the torch handle also improves longevity in situations where tools receive rough treatment, a feature specifically requested by the supervisors interviewed during product development.

Better VisibilityVictor400_BetterView

To simplify use and increase precision, the 400 Series cutting attachment provides excellent line-of-sight visibility. Victor accomplished this by departing from its traditional tube-in-tube design to a sleeker three-tube design (oxy-fuel cutting requires three tubes, one each for fuel gas, pre-heat oxygen and cutting oxygen).

“Our new tube design optimizes cutting area visibility while providing strength and supporting gas flow rate requirements for tip sizes 000 through 6,” says Henderson. The 400 Series uses a universal mixer design and mixes the gases in the head of the torch. Like all Victor torches, it enables operators to use one torch for all fuels (acetylene, propylene, propane, etc.) simply by selecting the correct tips or attachments.

“Everyone familiar with the cutting performance of a Victor torch will recognize the superior performance of the new 400 Series cutting attachments,” notes Henderson. “They’ll also appreciate how the oxygen cutting lever is positioned relative to the torch handle for increased comfort.”

When sold as part of the Medalist® 250 and 350 outfits, Victor’s new G Series regulator accompanies the 400 Series torch. G Series regulators use a combination of colors on the gauge face to provide clarity for reading needle position, while a scale and red tick mark indicate actual service pressure of the regulator.  The G Series also uses ergonomic color-coded knobs to indicate gas type and for better comfort when adjusting gas pressure.

We are excited to share with you an impressive line-up of new products to help kick-off the new year!
