... is usually achieved when the arc is vertical (0°). Nitrogen and argon-hydrogen cuts are optimized by adjusting speed to obtain a 5 to 10° trailing arc. The best oxygen cuts are made using a speed that provides a slight (1 to 2°) leading arc. The PAC torch should always be kept square with the workpiece...
