The Hypertherm Powermax® family of products consists of seven highly portable, professional grade air plasma systems. Built to withstand heavy duty use in demanding industrial environments, the systems are an ideal choice for hand or automated cutting and gouging of any electrically conductive metal; depending on system size, they offer a severance cut capacity from 16 mm (5/8″) at 30 A to 57 mm (2-1/4″) at 125 A.
Cut metal quickly and cleanly
Plasma is created when gas is ionized by electrical energy. In Hypertherm Powermax systems, its intense heat (up to 22,000° C) is used to melt metal. Compressed air or nitrogen blows the molten metal away, leaving a clean edge that’s ready to weld in most cases.
Cut or gouge any electrically conductive metal
Whether in a shop, factory, at home, or in the field, Hypertherm Powermax systems cut and gouge all metal types and forms. Most Hypertherm Powermax models are available with a handheld or machine torch exactly tailored to your application.
