"Spectre has begun to design a new class of devices that are an updated version of the earliest use of thermite technology dating back more than 100 years.
These first examples of thermite technology were so-called "gravity flow" devices that generated extremely high temperature metal flows that were used for welding or penetrating metal objects. This approach is not nearly as efficient as our focused jet torches for penetrating or cutting but provides a simple and easy-to-use solution for situations where something other than a highly focused cut is required. Our unique approach has the added advantage of being user-scalable. While our advanced thermite torch designs are carefully engineered for relatively specific requirements, this approach allows users to simply add additional units to a pile of units that will ultimately create a larger mass of super-heated metal."
