Powermax Handheld Plasma Cutting Systems
If you are in the business of fabrication and cutting of all types of steel and metal, the hypertherm powermax series of hand held air plasma systems is your most profitable answer.

Following are the advantage of using powermax plasma cutting over oxy fuel:

 

1.    Plasma requires no preheating

                     i.        Oxy-fuel requires preheating the metal to kindling temperature before cutting can begin.

·         Example: 8mm mild steel requires about 10 seconds of preheat time before cutting.

·         A Powermax 105 would have already cut 400 mm of material.

 

2.    Plasma is significantly faster

                        i.        Plasma cut speeds are up to 6 times faster than oxy-fuel.

                                                          6mm  12mm 19mm 25mm

          Oxy-fuel (mm/m)                  550    500     420     325

          Plasma (mm/m)                   3353   2235   1193    711

          Plasma faster by:                 6X        4X       3X       2X

                       ii.        In 15 minutes of production cutting 6mm steel:

·     Oxy-fuel torch will cut about 8m of metal

·A Powermax 105 system will cut about 50m of metal!

3.    Plasma Cuts almost all metals

                     i.        Plasma can cut virtually any metal including rusted steel, stainless steel, aluminum and many others.

                    ii.        Oxy-fuel is limited to cutting just mild steel (ferrous metal).

4.    Plasma Cuts thin material better

                      i.        Plasma cuts thin gauge metal at fast speeds with very little war page in the material for easier fit up.

                    ii.        Oxy-fuel cuts slowly and puts a large amount of heat into the material that causes it to warp.

5.    Plasma Cuts thin material better

                      i.        Plasma cuts thin gauge metal at fast speeds with very little war page in the material for easier fit up.

                    ii.        Oxy-fuel cuts slowly and puts a large amount of heat into the material that causes it to warp.

6.    Plasma is Safer meeting HSE requirements

                      i.        No use of flammable/explosive gases.

                    ii.        You just need an electric power source and an air compressor.
