Air Plasma Systems

By on

Hypertherm, Hanover, N.H., has introduced three air plasma systems called Powermax SYNC, which features built-in intelligence and a revolutionary single-piece cartridge consumable.

 

Powermax SYNC and its SmartSYNC torch replace the traditional five-piece consumable stack-up with a single color-coded cartridge. Technology embedded in each cartridge automatically sets the correct amperage, air pressure and operating mode and lets operators know when a new cartridge is needed. Additionally, controls on the SmartSYNC torch allow operators to adjust the amperage and change the cartridge without returning to the power supply.

 

Hypertherm cartridge for Powermax systems last up to twice as long and deliver cleaner cuts versus traditional consumables, according to the company. The cartridge can even track data, like starts and arc-on time, to identify trends and make a user’s operation more efficient.

 

“The Powermax SYNC series delivers incredible ease of use, a lower operating cost, and better performance than any other air plasma before it,” said Erik Brine, general manager of Hypertherm’s Powermax team. “We are excited to introduce what is truly a groundbreaking new product to the fabrication industry. This simplified operation serves to help fabricators address many of the toughest challenges they face today by eliminating operator errors, downtime, troubleshooting, waste, and training time, while offering the same industry leading reliability all Powermax systems are known for.”

 

In keeping with Hypertherm’s commitment to offer technology updates to owners of its older plasma systems, Hypertherm engineers have developed an adapter for Duramax and Duramax Lock torches. This will enable owners of the Powermax45 XP and Powermax65/85/105 to enjoy some benefits of the cartridge consumable platform, such as faster change-outs, easier ordering and inventory tracking, longer life, and improved cut quality.
