Power Supply – Versatility-enhancing features let you get more out of your system.

  • Boost Conditioner compensates for input voltage variations on 200-240 V lines, providing improved performance on low-line voltage, on motor generators and on fluctuating input power.

  • A CNC interface and built-in 50:1 voltage divider make it easy to run the Powermax45 on a mechanized cutting table.

  • FastConnect: The industry’s fastest torch disconnect which makes it easy to switch between handheld and mechanized operation.

Torches - Hypertherm engineers the world’s finest plasma cutting torches.

  • The Powermax45 offers hand held torches for cutting, piercing and gouging in limitless manual applications, and machine torches for use on x-y tables, robotic cutting arms, track burners (also known as straight-line cutters), pipe bevellers and more.

  • Conical Flow design increases arc energy density for superior cut quality with little dross.

Reliability - Day-in and day-out reliability in any environment

  • Use your Powermax45 in hot, cold, humid, dusty and whatever other environment you find indoors, outdoors, on the road or in the field, the Powermax45 is designed and tested for your toughest jobs.

  • Our Powercool design cools internal components more effectively for greater system reliability and improved uptime 

  • Products are tested until they break. Then we find the problem, fix it, and test them again, always under the most severe operating conditions.

VS Oxyfuel - Still cutting with oxyfuel? Get more done, in less time, at lower cost

  • Use the Powermax45 on mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum and more. Dirty, painted, rusted – the Powermax45 cuts it all. Not enough? Powermax plasma also requires no pre-heating, delivers fast cut speeds, superior cut quality, and lower operating cost. And with no flammable gases to regulate, it’s easier and safer, too.
