Safe handling for your torch

Messer Cutting Systems offers you handles and machine shafts in various sizes. Whilst the machine shafts are intended for mounting in a unit, the handles must fulfil the wishes and requirements of the. Because of this we place particular emphasis on weight and ergonomics as well as the technical functionality and safe operation during design and development. For this reason, each of the handle ranges exists in numerous variations.

We would be happy to support you with advice to find the optimum handle for you.
