* Note: Take care in comparison: competitors often show maximum cutting speeds rather than speeds that deliver the best cuts, as shown above. Cut speeds listed above deliver best cut quality, but cut speeds can be up to 50% faster.
           
** ISO 9013 is a standard that defines cut quality of thermally cut parts. The lower the range (range 1 is the lowest), the smaller the angle on the cut face. Cut angle in range 4 is better than in range 5.
