Hey everyone. I recently purchased a used Hypertherm 45xp but it came with the T45V torch. I am wondering if it is worth the money to upgrade to the duramax machine torch. Cut quality, dross, etc. I currently use both the t45v and t30v consumables on my machine depending on what im cutting but have heard that the duramax stuff is nicer and the fine cut consumables are killer.
I know it would certainly be nice to be able to run at a higher IPM and amps with some fine cuts as I have to go pretty slow and lower my amps to 30 when using the t30v “fine cut” consumables but im questioning if its worth it as the torch is not cheap and consumables are more costly.
