Powermax85

Overview

The Powermax85 combines the latest technological innovations and seven Duramax™ series torch options with 85 amps of cutting power to make it the premier 1" air plasma system for handheld or mechanized cutting and gouging.

  •   Severance cut of up to 38mm (1½")!
  •   Cut 1 " thick stainless steel at up to 18" per minute!!
  •   Cut 6mm (¼") mild steel at up to 200" per minute!!!

Applications

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

Maximum productivity

  • Fast cut speeds: 250% faster than oxyfuel on 12 mm (1/2") mild steel.
  • Superior cut and gouge quality means less time spent on grinding and edge preparation.

Easy-to-use for cutting and gouging

  • Smart Sense™ technology automatically sets correct air pressure based on torch length and operating mode.
  • Handheld, straight machine and robotic torches for greater versatility and ease-of-use.
  • Wide voltage tolerance improves performance on motor generators and in low-line conditions.
  •  Improved shield reduces dross buildup and enables smoother drag cutting for a better cut.

Built and tested to withstand the harshest conditions

  • Duramax™ torches are designed for high impact and heat-resistance.
  • SpringStart™ technology ensures consistent starting and a more reliable torch.
  • Low maintenance for maximum uptime – it keeps on going.
