Overview

The Powermax105® plasma system has the duty cycle and performance needed for tough industrial cutting and gouging jobs. Delivering superior cut capabilities on 32 mm (1-1/4″) thick metals, it also offers the latest technological innovations, such as Smart Sense™ technology to automatically adjust the gas pressure. Seven Duramax™ torch styles provide versatility for hand cutting, portable automation, X-Y table cutting, and robotic cutting and gouging.

The configurations below include a power supply, one or more torches, a work cable, and a starter consumable kit.

System information

Benefits

Maximum productivity

  • Finish jobs faster with cut speeds three times greater than oxyfuel on 12 mm (1/2″) mild steel
  • Superior cut and gouge quality let you spend less time on grinding and edge preparation
  • Multiple, easy-to-use torch styles let you tackle a wide variety of jobs using the same system

Easy-to-use for cutting and gouging

  • No need to change the air pressure – Smart Sense technology ensures that it is always correctly set; it also detects electrode end-of-life, automatically turning off power to the torch to prevent potential damage to other parts or to the workpiece
  • SpringStart™ technology ensures consistent starting and a more reliable torch
  • Drag cut at full output with a patented shield that reduces dross buildup for smoother cutting

Built to handle tough jobs

  • Hypertherm Certified™ reliability ensures peak performance even in the harshest environments
  • Duramax torches are designed for high-impact and heat resistance
