Hypertherm has recently launched the Powermax30 AIR, a light weight plasma cutter with a built in compressor for even easier portability.
The Powermax30Air is the lightest plasma cutter with an internal
compressor that operates on 120 or 240 volts, and can produce 2.5
killowatts at 30 amps. The robust internal compressor
eliminates the costs associated with an external compressor and allows
for operation anywhere, making an effective alternative to oxy fuel
cutting. The new patent-pending consumable designs enable consistent
cutting by optimizing the air flow from the compact, internal
compressor. Coupled with the highly effective moisture removal
system, the Powermax30 AIR provides great cut quality and
performance in hot and humid conditions.
