Hypertherm has a new 105-amp air-plasma cutting system, the Powermax105.

Designed for hand- and automated cutting, the unit is made to cut 1.25-inch-thick metal, and is especially suited for HVAC uses, officials said.

“In addition to devoting an enormous amount of engineering resources to this new plasma cutting system, the associate owners at Hypertherm spent a lot of time on the road observing people who cut metal to better understand their needs,” said Erik Brine, product marketing manager for Powermax systems. “We took that information and applied it to the Powermax105 to create a product that the most demanding customers of the world can rely on for metal cutting and gouging.”

Additional features include faster cut speeds, seven torch options and improved reliability, Hypertherm said.
