Powermax105®

Overview

Handheld or mechanized plasma system for cutting and gouging metal

Maximum productivity

  • Fast cut speeds: three times faster than oxyfuel on 12 mm (½”) 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.

Low operating cost

  • Long consumable life for lower cost and more uptime.
  • Exclusive electrode end-of-life detection protects the torch and workpiece from damage by automatically stopping power when the electrode is overused.
  • High power efficiency lowers energy consumption.
