Powermax125®

Overview

Powermax 125® – Professional grade plasma metal cutting and gouging system for handheld cutting 38 mm and mechanized piercing 25 mm

Maximum productivity

  • Finish jobs faster with cut speeds 5 times greater than oxyfuel on 12 mm mild steel.
  • Spend less time on grinding and edge preparation due to superior cut and gouge quality.
  • Maximize your cutting time with 100% duty cycle.

Low operating costs

  • Reduce costs with consumable life up to four times longer than other systems in this amperage range.
  • Electrode end-of-life detection protects the torch and workpiece from damage by automatically stopping power when the electrode is overused.

Easy-to-use for cutting and gouging

  • No need to change the air pressure. Smart Sense™ technology ensures that it is always correctly set.
  • Tackle different jobs with multiple, easy-to-use torch styles.

Built and tested to withstand the harshest conditions

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