Lotos, in particular the LTPDC2000D Lotos. It’s a plasma cutter, Tig and stick machine. I tell everyone to forget about 110 volts. Go with 220 volts, you’ll be a ton happier and save yourself a bunch of headaches.
Technical & general specifications of the Lotos LTPDC2000D
Both, stick/tig welding and plasma cutting:
Ever heard of Stick welding and plasma cutting both available at a single working station? Yes, the Lotos pilot arc has provisioned this.
The LTPDC2000D plasma cutter is capable of cutting thick steel sheets and also precise plasma cutting where you need perfection prior to cutting depth.
Both options are highly effective in this working station. Both optional weldings occur at about 200A welding current.
You can even have aluminum sticks along with this product for your convenience.
Robust IGBT Technology inside:
The creators equipped this tremendous cutter with the latest power-driven matrix named Infineon IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor).
This part of the product has been developed and manufactured by Siemens, one of the world-class tech companies.
This is the part of the product that allows precise plasma arc producing provisions and necessary environments.
All in all, this is the transformer, which helps to produce such a powerful flaming arc at the lid of the plasma torch.

Dimensions and weight:
This product measures 17 x 8 x 12.5 inches and weighs only 44.5 pounds.
The measurement of this product is quite flexible and feasible for powerful works at home.
Moreover, the weight isn’t that much compared to heavy-duty and robust welding stations.
You can easily take this product and move here and there while working.
However, you should use longer wire rather than move the base station frequently.
Buttons, displays, and ease of communicating with the product:
With this product, you are going to see a lot of options and buttons on the frontal panel.
At the top left portion, there is the on/off button.
At the top-right portion, there is a display panel that shows the current rating of the plasma arc or the current flowing through the specimen while working.
You can easily increase or decrease this current through the knob just below the current display panel.
At the bottom left corner of the frontal panel, you can see a knob that allows you to use whether the tig/stick welding or plasma cutting mechanism.
Just at the bottom middle of the panel, you can see another tab that controls the cutting type, whether the material is easy to cut and soft or hard and harsh.
At the right side of this knob and before the current knob, you’ll get another knob which will decide if you will use the pedal or machine option for cutting the material.

As for being high tech equipment, the Lotos LTPDC2000D will surely generate a great amount of heat.
But you don’t need to worry at all. If you take the product in your hands, you’ll see that there are ventilation around the product wall.
The heat generating from the transformer and the internal equipment can easily transfer outside to the air and keeps the product running.
Safety measures to follow:
Whenever you are doing something dangerous, you need to equip all the gadgets and gears for protection disregarding the level of work.
And never forget to keep the working spot far from any sort of fabric or clothing zone.
I highly recommend you to keep safety measures beside you while working even if you are equipping high-security pieces of equipment.
Ultimately, you need to be very careful while working because accidents never happen intentionally.
You never know what’s gonna happen next.
Reading those, you’ll get to know how the LTPDC2000D is and how capable it is at doing things.
After you’ve known everything, you can move forth towards cutting any specific steel sheets you need for your project works or any other personal works.
