Ignition detection built into the APC system
With our FIT+ three torches, the ignition of the flame works very reliably. However, under certain conditions it may happen that the ignition is not successful the first time. For this reason, we have integrated ignition detection into the APC Automatic Oxy-Fuel Process Control System. If the ignition does not produce a flame the first time, ignition is repeated until the flame is on. This is a further step on the way to a complete Oxy-Fuel cutting process automation.
The right flame for oxyfuel cutting
FIT+ three backfire and the missing error line
Since that time, it has been possible to cut with these cutting torches.
IHT and GCE have now introduced a new generation of cutting torches. The FIT+ three cutting torch. What is the difference between a simple cutting torch and the FIT+ three?
Why does a FIT+ three oxy-fuel cutting torch suddenly have an error output and why should I connect it?
That is what this video is about.
Ask Kurt about: "Fit for Future"
Have you experienced problems when manually igniting your Oxy-Fuel torches?

Fact N°4 Oxy-Fuel needs more automation
Fact N°3 Oxy-Fuel produces high quality cuts
Of course you do have to be looking at parts cut in a production environment made from industrial quality steel and not those made on an exhibition stand to amuse the visitors clutching their giveaways!
Fact N° 2: Oxy fuel really is being used to cut thin plates
Fact N° 1: Oxy-Fuel doesn't cost the earth
We can also see from this graph that Oxy-Fuel cutting for sheet thicknesses from 20 mm is very cost effective. And the more torches you have, the greater the savings.
Four Facts about Oxy-Fuel cutting that you may think you are probably not going to believe:
But why has no-one mentioned Good Old Oxy-Fuel, whereabouts does that figure in today's cutting league? Some call it old and past it, or that it can only be used where there are people around to make it work properly.
Let us compare Oxy-Fuel and Plasma.
