Arcair Slice Cutting System


Unlike any other cutting technology used today, the Arcair SLICE System can cut, burn or pierce virtually any metallic, non-metallic or composite material.  This includes hard-to-cut materials such as mild, stainless and alloy steels, Cast iron, aluminium, magnesium and other non-ferrous metals.  With the SLICE system you can cut slag and refactory materials, punch through concrete or brick and even cut through materials contaminated with 
rust, mud or other corrosion.


The SLICE System uses a special Arcair torch that feeds oxygen and electrical power to a patented SLICE exothermic cutting rod.

 You supply oxygen and a 12-volt battery or a welding machine (CC). The battery gives you fast ignition and portability.

The welding machine lets you maintain a continuous arc (up to 200 amps) with conductive materials for cutting temperatures over 5,000 C.

Arcair K4000 - The Best Air Carbon-Arc Gouging Torch from the Pioneers of the Technology.

The Arcair K4000 Air-Carbon Arc gouging torch is the Number 1 choice worldwide for efficient metal removal.  It is an ideal tool for weld removal, backgouging, edge preparation, defect repair and many other metal removal jobs.


The air carbon-arc process works by creating an arc between a carbon electrode and a workpiece.  The intense heat of the arc melts part of the workpiece, which is blown away by a jet of air from the torch.  The metal removal rate depends on the speed the metal is melted, and the efficiency of the air jet.


The K4000 is a particularly popular choice as its ergonomic design works efficiently with the natural angles and movements of the arm and wrist.  This torch accepts pointed carbon electrodes with diameters from 4 – 13mm, and flat carbon electrodes with 10 or 16mm diameters.  It operates up to 1000 Amps, requiring a welding power source to supply power.


In addition, the K4000 also offers the following advantages:


§360° swivel cable to reduce cable twists

§Natural 15° torch angle, providing greater user comfort

§High quality cable hose to resist heat and abrasion

§Rugged construction – a Heavy Duty gouging torch that won’t let you down.


Arcair is the inventor of the original air carbon arc process and has led the industry for over 60 years, which is why Arcair gouging equipment is now available across the world and used every day for many different applications.  The K4000 is the result of combining this proven technology with improved ergonomics and a Heavy Duty design.
