powermax_header.jpg

The Powermax® family of products consists of seven highly portable, professional grade air plasma cutting and gouging 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 5/8" at 30 A to 2-1/4" at 125 A.

Powermax45 XP plasma system

Meet the newest member of our best-selling line of Powermax® portable plasma systems. The Powermax45® XP plasma cutter delivers increased cut capacity – up to 16 mm (5/8”) metal – as well as faster cut speeds, and automatic gas adjustment for quick, simple setup and operation. New Duramax® Lock torches support handheld and mechanized cutting of a wider range of metal thicknesses, along with precision gouging such as spot weld removal, and marking capabilities.
