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.

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.

new-WH411_01_coloradjusted2While lighter than a brass handle, the new handle better resists abuse, and it balances well when hoses and attachments are connected.  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 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!

Tweco® has introduced its new Velocity™ MIG consumables platform. Velocity consumables provide smoother arc characteristics, reduce weld spatter and make it easier for the operator to control the arc. Velocity consumables will be featured on new Tweco Fusion™ light-duty MIG guns and incorporated in all Thermal Arc Fabricator® 3-in-1 Series welders.

TwecoFusionMIGGunIn addition, to help you reduce the cost and complexity of managing your consumables, Tweco has launched a new series of Universal Conduit liners. These patent-pending, two-piece liners feature a liner crimped with a threaded wire guide and adapters that make it compatible with most major MIG gun brands* including Tweco, Lincoln®, Profax®, Miller®, Hobart®, Bernard® and Tregaskiss®.  Now you only need to stock one liner and the various adapters, reducing your inventory costs.
