Powermax SYNC beats oxyfuel

When it comes to cutting metal, two widely used thermal processes are oxyfuel and air plasma. While oxyfuel is a proven method, Hypertherm’s Powermax SYNC® air plasma systems provide many significant advantages over oxyfuel, including easier and more versatile operation, faster speeds, better cut quality, and lower operating costs.


Some of the Powermax SYNC benefits:

  • Single-piece, color-coded cartridge consumable simplifies inventory and reduces operator errors and training time.
  • Advanced torch communication sets correct amperage and operating mode, eliminating setup errors.
  • Convenient controls right on the SmartSYNC™ torch make it easy to adjust your amperage and change consumables without returning to the power supply.

Common applications

  • Drag cutting
  • Bevel cutting
  • Gouging
  • Cutting complex shapes or fine features
  • Flush cutting
  • Extended-reach cutting
  • Scrapping and skeleton cutting
