With the economy still providing mixed signals, Victor Technologies is approaching business with optimism. Our branding
effort is in full swing, and we are enthusiastic about our newest product offerings both in the U.S. and around the globe.
Beginning with the company name change in May of 2012, and following in October with the alignment of our cutting
brands under the Victor name, we have focused on optimizing the performance of our brand portfolio. This is reflected in the
introduction of new packaging and displays for Victor, along with new “Victor green” trade dress and packaging for Victor Thermal
Dynamics manual and automated product lines.
To our valued distributors, business partners and end users, we share the message that coupled with our brand changes, our
resolve in the pursuit of strong product solutions, innovation and technology remains unchanged.
For example, Victor has introduced its new line of 400 Series oxy-fuel torches that offer better ergonomics and end-user driven
features such as a new contoured handle, three-tube cutting attachment design and color-coded valves for clarity and enhanced
safety. The 400 Series boasts a contoured, high-strength alloy torch handle that, while lighter than a brass handle, balances better
in operators’ hands and better resists wear and abuse.
In Victor Thermal Dynamics Automation, the rollout of the AutoCut XT and UltraCut XT lines represent the next generation in
precision plasma cutting. Ultra-Cut XT systems provide the flexibility to increase cutting power and the assurance of superior
quality, higher productivity and lower cutting costs. And because of its expansion capabilities, there is never a concern about
choosing the right system.
In specialty welding, Tweco also boasts a new logo and refreshed packaging. In addition to the new Tweco Velocity MIG
consumables and light-duty Tweco Fusion MIG guns, Tweco has also announced its scheduled launch of the Tweco Classic Series
MIG guns, an enhancement to the original “numbered series” that is arguably one of the most popular gun designs in the world.
Tweco Classic enhancements will include interlocking joints for superior toughness, an angled trigger for a more comfortable pull
and refined, modernized lines.
In addition to these exciting announcements, we invite you to help us celebrate this year’s 100th anniversary of the Victor brand.
Please read about our 100th Anniversary contests in this issue of NewsUpdate, and we invite you to share in a special celebration
with us later this year at the 2013 Fabtech. Stay tuned for additional details, and again, thank you for your valued role in delivering
Victor Technologies cutting, gas control and specialty welding products that set the standard for versatility and performance.

Tweco-PMUB-BannerNew Tweco® Velocity MIG Consumables Offer Quick Change Tip, Less Complexity, Improved Arc Stability, and Reduced SpatterVelocity-consumable-breakout
Tweco introduces its new Velocity MIG consumables platform, which is integrated into the new Tweco Fusion series of light-duty MIG guns.The non-threaded, “drop-in” style Velocity contact tip eliminates the need to use vice-grips, welpers or other tools to remove the tip, even if the wire burns back and fuses inside the tip. The Velocity consumables design integrates the gas diffuser into theconductor tube. This creates an improved all-copper conductor path thatprovides better electrical conductivity and transfers heat more efficiently away from the tip. As a result, the arc becomes more stable and predictable.

Arcair®, the industry leader in air carbon-arc products, introduces the Arcair-Matic® N7500, a next generation automatic gouging system that provides superior performance, flexibility, versatility, and safety.

EASE AND VERSATILITY FOR HUNDREDS OF METAL FABRICATION USESfeatured-products-arcair

The Arcair-Matic® N7500 gouging system delivers high productivity for any metal fabrication operation where gouging and welding represents a large portion of the work schedule. The system  can be utilized on almost all metals.

FIVE TIMES FASTER, TEN TIMES LESS GRIND

A typical automated gouge requires 10 times less grinding and improves your overall metal removal productivity.

Arcair-Matic N7500 Application Images

The Arcair-Matic N7500 gouging system will produce excellent U-groove edge preparation and back-gouging for both plate and pipe, and with less edge distortion than flame cutting. It can J-groove a 1″ (25.4 mm) thick plate about 50% faster than an automatic flame torch can bevel. And since a J-groove requires a lot less fill metal than a bevel joint, welding is done at 1.5 times the speed.
