Since 2000 Lotos operated by Zion International Inc introduced inverter technology in welding and cutting machines. Lotos' latest high frequency inverter technology utilizes V-MOSFETs along with PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) to deliver a far more constant, concentrated and precise current to the cutting surface. This technology has been substantially reduced in size and weight of Inverter Plasma Cutters. It helps you to easily achieve smooth, clean cuts of wide range of surfaces and material (e.g. stainless steel, alloy steel, brass, aluminum and other conductive material) with minimal heat input and without distortion of metal. Lotos plasma cutters are designed especially for those DIY (do-it-yourself) users, while fully accommodating the demands of professional operators.

The production process for Lotos operated by Zion International Inc products is among the most stringent in the world and meets or exceeds some of the industry's most rigid standards. Our studies show that it is in fact among one of the best in the industry and is unrivaled by other would-be competitors. The quality of each of the integrated components is constantly monitored during the course of production. Only components and materials that meet the highest industry standards for quality are permitted to be incorporated into LOTOS products. Finally, upon conclusion of production, each unit is put through a newly devised, far more rigorous 30 point testing and quality inspection routine. This process is critical to ensuring a product that is not only safe, but reliable in both performance and durability.
Cut at 12 Times the Speed of Sound
Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals using a plasma torch. In this process, an inert gas (compressed air) is blown at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time an electrical arc is formed through that gas from the nozzle to the surface that is being cut, turning some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently fast to blow molten metal away from the cut. The plasma, which is maintained between the work-piece and electrode, travels at over 9000 MILES PER HOUR (15,000 km/Handle). That’s over twelve times the speed of sound.
Advantage of Plasma vs. Oxy-Fuel Torch
Plasma does not use expensive, hazardous gases, only compressed air. It imparts much less heat into the piece being cut, eliminating warping. It does not require ignition. It leaves little to no slag to clean up or grind off. The cost per cutting hour can be less than oxy-fuel since there is no gas cost. It is also much quicker and easier. So, you cut better, faster and inexpensively.
Skill and Training
There is not a lot of skill or training required to operate a plasma cutter. The torch should remain at a 90-degree angle. With the Lotos LT5000D you can keep a standoff or drag the tip of the torch on the metal.
ADVANCED INVERTER TECHNOLOGY
The LT5000D inverter rectifies the input voltage (110V or 220V) into DC (Direct Current), which is then fed into a series of MOSFETs (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor). LOTOS LT5000D/CUT50D utilizes the most advanced TOSHIBA MOSFETs. These MOSFETs (transistors) are switched at thousands of Hertz, which greatly reduces the magnetic flux, and therefore the size of the transformer. Hence, the use of MOSFETs allows for a compact and light weight machine such as the LT5000D/CUT50D to operate at its performance parameters. In simple terms the use of these MOSFETs makes it possible for LT5000D/CUT50D to produce the necessary power, using very little space and creating minimal heat dissipation.
