  • Patent number: 10328517
    Abstract: A torch assembly for cutting or spraying applications. The torch assembly includes a torch connector that connects to at least one cable that communicates with a power supply. The torch assembly includes a trigger mounted on the torch assembly to start and stop torch operations. The trigger electrically communicates with the power supply via the at least one cable. The torch assembly also includes a remote switch mounted on the torch assembly to allow an operator to remotely adjust an output of the power supply to a desired output level. The remote switch is electrically coupled to the power supply via the at least one cable.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10144080
    Abstract: A cutting system including a plasma arc torch having an electrode, nozzle, and a gas conduit through which gas is transferred to a torch tip. The torch includes at least one of a sensor and a set circuit, where the set circuit stores a parameter related to the torch. The system also includes a power supply outputting a cutting waveform to the electrode via an electrical connector to initiate a working arc. The working arc creates a plasma arc using the gas. The system further includes a controller that controls an output of the power supply and a feeding of the gas through the gas conduit based upon input from a user input device positioned on at least one of the torch and the power supply. The controller monitors at least one usage parameter. The system additionally includes a memory device that is coupled to the controller. The memory device stores data related to the at least one usage parameter.
