A Closer Look at the Hypertherm Powermax85 Plasma System

CNC plasma Cutting

At Tactical CNC, we have worked hard to research and develop outstanding CNC plasma cutting systems that are durable, long-lasting, and produce the highest-quality, most accurate cuts.  We know that every single component of a CNC plasma system influences the quality of the final cut which is why we have opted to only work with the industry’s best-of-the-best, such as Hypertherm, for components of our plasma systems.  There are many different Hypertherm plasma cutters and they each have their own unique benefits but for the purposes of this article, we will be taking a closer look at the Hypertherm Powermax85.

The Hypertherm Powermax85 plasma system can be paired with any of our plasma tables to create a powerful fabrication tool.  Hypertherm describes the Powermax85 plasma system and what sets it apart, “The premier system for cutting 25 mm (1″), the Powermax85® has the same features and options as the Powermax65®, but with more power from an output current of 85 amps. Designed to maximize uptime and productivity, the system offers the latest technological innovations, such as Smart Sense™ technology to automatically adjust the gas pressure. With a variety of Duramax™ torch styles, operators can easily select exactly the right tool for the job: hand cutting or gouging, portable automation, X-Y table, and robotic cutting or gouging.”

The Hypertherm Powermax85 plasma system offers a number of benefits to the user.  Any metal fabricator that can complete jobs more quickly without sacrificing accuracy and precision knows that they will be able to ultimately increase profitability.  Fortunately, the Hypertherm Powermax85 is able to finish jobs faster with cut speeds that are two and half times greater than oxyfuel on 12mm mild steel.  Further, the quality of the cut and gouge achieved with the Hypertherm Powermax85 is far superior so it allows the fabricator to spend less time on grinding and edge preparation.  Also, the Powermax85 plasma system has multiple torch styles that are easy-to-use and allow the user to tackle a wide variety of jobs using the same system.  In fact, the Powermax85 is so easy to use that the user does not need to change the air pressure because it is equipped with Smart Sense™ technology which ensures that the air pressure is always correctly set.  Additionally, the plasma system is equipped with SpringStart™ technology which ensures that the torch consistently start and is also more reliable.  And, we know that all fabricators want to reduce dross.  The Powermax85 is able to drag a cut at full output with a patented shield.  This reduces dross buildup for smoother cutting.  The Hypertherm Powermax85 is ideal for applications that include drag cutting, extended reach cutting, extended reach gouging, fine feature cutting, flush cutting, marking, max control gouging, max removal gouging, and mechanized cutting.
