Applications

 

Easy to Use

  • One of our most compact and light weight systems, the Powermax45 XP is the ideal portable plasma cutter for a 16 mm (5/8″) rated cutting system
  • Patented drag-cutting technology makes the Powermax45 XP easy to use – even for first-time operators
  • Smart Sense™ technology ensures that air pressure is always correctly set

Outstanding Versatility

  • CNC interface and FastConnect™ torch connection allows both handheld and mechanized operation
  • A wide range of torch and consumable styles to choose from for both handheld and automated processes
  • Extensive array of application capabilities via specialty consumables for fine feature cutting, extended reach cutting, gouging, precision gouging, and marking.

Maximum Productivity

  • Finish jobs faster, with cut speeds 1.5 times greater than oxyfuel on 6 mm (1/4″) mild steel
  • Superior cut and gouge quality reduces time for grinding and edge preparation
  • New torch disable switch feature allows faster, easier changeout of consumables

Rugged and Reliable

  • Duramax® Lock torches are designed for high-impact and heat resistance
  • SpringStart™ technology ensures consistent starting and optimum torch performance
  • Hypertherm Certified™ reliability ensures peak performance even in the most demanding environments

Designed for Low Environmental Impact
