Powermax45

Overview

Our best selling system.
The Powermax45 is the most versatile and portable 1/2" (12 mm) machine on the market, with a broad set of application capabilities that make it a truly multi-purpose tool. The Powermax45 cuts or gouges faster, easier and better than any other product in its class.

  •   Severance cut of up to 25mm (1")!
  •   Cut ½" thick stainless steel at up to 18" per minute!!
  •   Cut 10 GA mild steel at up to 175" per minute!!!

Applications

  •   Hand cutting
  •   Gouging
  •   Automated cutting
  •    X-Y Table
  •    Track systems
  •    Pipe systems
  •    Robotic systems

Key power supply advantages

  •   Small size and light weight provide unmatched portability among 1⁄2" (12 mm) machines.
  •   CNC interface and FastConnect™ torch connection increase versatility for handheld and mechanized usage.
  •   Powercool™ design cools internal components more effectively for greater system reliability and improved uptime.

Key torch advantages

  •   Conical Flow™ increases arc energy density for superior cut quality with little dross.
  •   Patented drag-cutting technology makes it easy to use - even for first-time operators.
  •   Dual-angle design extends nozzle life and lowers operating cost.
