American Torch Tip Co. (ATTC) released the GEN (Gas Efficient Nozzle) for laser cutting applications. The inner nozzle provides a more secure fitting, preventing it from dislodging during cutting. The sleeve decreases the amount of turbulence during cutting and, therefore, decreases the amount of slag. The independent sleeve allows continuous contact with the plate during cutting, even over rough terrain. The nozzle saves on gas consumption and short piercing times allow for increased acceleration and higher productivity and feed rates.
