Tool Head Conversion from OEM to Aftermarket

Postby Thomas » Wed Jun 20, 2018 2:34 pm

Question. I had a sales rep from American Torch Tip drop off a conversion kit for the tool head on my HPR130XD. They did away with the plasma vent tube on the ATT, and the ohmic sensor is longer than the original HPR version. I asked the rep about this and he stated that he helped design it (BS more than likely), and the new fab head doesn't require it. I asked him why, he said, "...because it doesn't." I need more of an answer than that and someone who helped "design" this should have the answer that I need. So I pose a question to this forum. Has anyone used the American Torch Tip (ATT) PHD-Plasma High Density Conversion Kit for the HPR130? If yes, what was the outcome? I've been running plasma cutters for over 10 years and I know that there are consumables that you can interchange with whatever system you're working on. But I don't have a good feeling about this and my boss is telling me to put it on. And hey, its his machine to blow up if he wants to do so but I just don't want to be out of work if this thing goes sideways. I just like to be prepared for anything that may or may not happen. Any advise is more than welcome. Thanks.
