Hypertherm's best selling plasma system has just got better. Meet the Powermax 45 XP, the newest member of Hypertherm's most popular line of plasma systems. The Powermax 45 XP replaces its predecessor and delivers an increased cut capacity - up to 16mm (5/8") metal, as well as faster cut speeds, and gas adjustment for quick, simple setup and operation. Plasma cutting efficiency is 11% better than its predecessor, enabling you to cut more steel with less power, in less time, while also being 14% lighter. The new Duramax Lock torches support handheld and mechanised cutting, along with enhanced gouging and new metal marking capabilities.
