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.

With Skills USA in full swing on Tuesday, we had a great time letting students and welders alike try out some of the cutting, gas control & specialty welding equipment we had on display. The Fabricator 211i, the latest in the line of 3-in-1 multi-process welding systems was a huge hit! Take a peek!

Victor Technologies has announced the 100th anniversary of its Victor brand of cutting and gas control equipment. “As we begin Victor’s 100 year anniversary, it is important to celebrate our shared history of authenticity, innovation and a deep connection to the end user,” says Martin Quinn, CEO, Victor Technologies. The complete Victor brand line-up consists of:

  • Victor oxy-fuel and gas control equipment
  • Victor Thermal Dynamics, which encompasses manual and automated
    plasma cutting systems
  • VictorTurboTorch, which includes air-fuel products for brazing and soldering
  • VictorArcair, which represents manual and automated gouging systems

Victor’s founder, L.W. Stettner, suffered the loss of an eye in a welding accident and set out to design and build safer products for cutting and welding. Equipment was manufactured to exacting standards, and Stettner’s designs resulted in numerous industry firsts in welding. For example, Victor cutting and welding torches were assembled with screws, not soldered. The patented assembly method provided  a stronger connection between components in the event of overheating.

Since its beginnings Victor has been rooted in innovative product solutions – relating directly to the user and enhancing the tools of their craft. These practices have made the Victor name synonymous with dependability and quality.

Throughout the year, and culminating at FABTECH 2013 Expo in Chicago, Victor will be celebrating its 100 year anniversary through special publications, contests, and events. Visit www.victortechnologies.com/victor100 for details.

Victor Technologies, working with Phoenix Welding Supply Company, recently had the opportunity to support contestants at the SkillsUSA Arizona Championships. Students used the Victor Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 42 plasma cutter and the Thermal Arc Fabricator 181i 3-in-1 welder.

Fabricator-3-in-1-Welding-ContestDistrict Manager Scott Cunningham noted that the nine Fabricator 181i welders performed flawlessly during the MIG welding portion of the competition. “These highly skilled students immediately recognized the arc performance delivered by an inverter-based welder,” says Scott. “We were happy to be able to provide a premium quality tool to help them during this challenging competition.”

Victor Technologies salutes the winners of the welding, welding fabrication and sculpture contests and wishes them best of luck at the National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City. For those attending, look for the Victor Technologies trailer outside Bartle Hall and check out our cutting and welding events.

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.
