Using Tanjant Guides with Gas or Plasma cutting torches allows fast, accurate cutting with a consistent clean cut surface. Tanjant Cutting Guides maintain a constant tip height and position, allowing the operator to focus on optimum cutting speed. Tanjant’s unique design twin bar frame allows full circle cutting from one position by rotating the frame around the circle path with no stop/start as happens with other types of guides. Plasma cutting guides improve torch tip life with a small clearance height to prevent damage from dragging on work surface. Wire guides and stand-offs simply don’t work well for any length of time.
Gas & Plasma Torch Guides
Roller Guides (also known as Chariot Cutting Guides)
These guides comprise a Brass Body (for gas) or GRN Body (for plasma) and a pair of wheels. Height adjustment allows the body to be set at the right working height and to be tilted to compensate for kerf angle. The wheels have stainless steel axles and hub guard to prevent wheels jamming.
Plasma roller guides are supplied with a knurled finger screw to prevent damage to the plasma torch from over-tightening.
Both types of Roller Guides have a specific internal profile matched to the torch. No Adaptor Bushing is required, however some models may include a small sleeve to allow the guide to be used with two sizes of torch from the same manufacturer.
Circle Guides (also known as Circle Burner Attachments)
Tanjant Circle Cutting Guides feature a unique twin-bar frame that allows the guide components to change position for supported cutting on inside or outside diameters. The Adaptor Bush rotates in the guides body so that a full circle can be cut without stopping, in one continuous motion, moving the guide frame around 360 degrees from start position. Offset Pin is included in the Circle Guide pack to enable minimum hole size. The actual diameter will depend on the size of the torch head. Also included in the Circle Guide pack is the Extension Bar which allows up to 700mm (28”) diameter cut. Some models may have a small sleeve fitted to the Adaptor Bush to cater for two different size torches from the same manufacturer.
