Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of advanced plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting systems, has unveiled the new Powermax30® XP metal cutting system at the 2014 CONEXPO-CON/AGG show for construction industry professionals.
The new system delivers high performance in a small portable package. Features include a two-inone design for high power cutting on thicker metal and detailed cutting on thinner metal using FineCut® consumables. The recommended cut capacity is 3/8” (10mm) with a severance capacity of 5/8” (16mm) making it ideal for framing walls and ceilings; fabricating roof or floor trusses; and installing roofing, siding, and decking. Construction crews can use the system to quickly cut galvanized steel channels and corrugated steel panels to length. Plus, they can create holes and openings for running conduit, installing vents and adding skylights. The system is also beneficial when repairing a variety of construction equipment, both in the shop and in the field.
In addition to the Powermax30 XP, Hypertherm is showcasing its Powermax125®, a cutting and gouging system that offers the most power of any portable air plasma available today. It features a 1½ inch recommended cut capacity and the ability to sever 2 ¼ inch thick metal, while boasting a full 100 percent duty cycle. It is the contractor’s choice for heavy duty fabrication and repair, including plant shut downs. Also on display, more Duramax torch options, including new long-handled plasma torches for cutting skeletons, scrapping, dismantling and other similar jobs.
