ESAB Cutting Systems introduces EPP-202 and EPP-362, the next generation of Precision Plasmarc? power sources for the m3 Plasma? System, a precision plasma system that combines plasma cutting and marking capabilities in a fully integrated, easy-to-use package. The new EPP units offer precise control of the plasma current using all-digital control circuitry, and a new high-speed data bus connection which provides precise current control and gas regulation, as well as enhanced diagnostic capabilities, including advanced status and process monitoring.
The digital power circuits in the EPP-202 (200A) and EPP-362 (300A) allow the new power sources to handle a full range of cutting and marking tasks, delivering consistent, repeatable results while maximizing consumable life, without sacrificing output power or stability.
An internal coolant circulator keeps the power sources operating at a more constant, controlled temperature, resulting in improved overall reliability.
The integrated EPP design reduces the size, weight and complexity of the power supplies, minimizing installation and floor space requirements.
The EPP power supply is a core component of ESAB’s m3 Plasma System which delivers advanced cutting features and components, including the new XR Series nozzles that enable faster cutting over a wide range of material types and thicknesses with less power, using the same nozzle, as well as ESAB’s Precision Hole Technology?, which automatically produces bolt-ready holes. The m3 system supports SmartCycle? Technology for increased productivity through full system integration of plasma, CAD/CAM/nesting software and CNC. In addition, the m3 system features Smart Voltage Height Control capability, which automatically adjusts the voltage height control for maximum consumable life while ensuring consistent cut quality through the life of the consumables.

The Professional Power Sprayer PS22, from SCH (Supplies), now offers increased spraying time between charges because of its superior, high-capacity battery. With a 30-litre tank mounted on a tricycle-type chassis, the sprayer has three pneumatic wheels. A large-break back boom gives a spraying width of up to 2.44m, although the two outer nozzles can be deactivated to give a narrow spray width if required. Each PS22 unit includes end spray hoods to minimise drift, a dribble bar for applying weedkiller to defined areas, and a foam marker to allow the operator to see where product has already been applied. This model can also be fitted with a tow bar.
Martin Lishman is displaying examples from across its comprehensive range of trailed, mounted, demountable and self-propelled amenity sprayers. The Micro-Spray has demonstrated its worth at Oakham School, where head of grounds Richard Dexter notes that it is easy to operate and control. Dexter also plans to extend use of Lishman’s Compost Tea. “We have already noticed the benefits, particularly with the breakdown of organic matter,” he says. “When we relied on granular fertiliser, we could make applications only during the school holidays. The fact that we can now apply Compost Tea during term time puts us in full control of our application programme.”
If you want to know what is in your soil, ask DJ Turfcare Equipment. The company will be promoting a new testing service for users of its Viano lawn product. “With sales of our organic products showing an increase this year, we have found a need for people to have a proper understanding of their soil requirements,” says managing director David Jenkins. “Clients will be able to send us a sample of soil and a scientific laboratory will give a full analysis. We can then advise on exactly the right products to use to alter pH for maximum growth and strength in their lawns.”
Among the products supplied by DJ Turfcare are Viano Bio-Lime, Recovery, Green Comfort and MO Bacter. Sales of all have risen since last year.
