Powermax85

Overview

The premier system for cutting 1" (25 mm), the Powermax85 has the same features and options as the Powermax65, but with more power from a max output current of 85 amps. A variety of Duramax torch styles provide exceptional versatility for hand cutting or gouging, portable automation, X-Y table and robotic cutting or gouging.

Duramax™ torches

Duramax torches are designed for durability and reliability. Spring Start™ technology in the electrode eliminates moving parts in the torch and ensures consistent reliable starting. Electrode end-of-life detection in the power supply combines with long consumable life to reduce operating costs.

The Duramax torch series includes torches for handheld and mechanized cutting and gouging, and robotic cutting.

Duramax torches are compatible with the Powermax105, 85, and 65 systems. Duramax retrofit torches are also available for legacy systems - click for more information.
