What is Powermax SYNC®?

Powermax SYNC® is an entirely new air plasma platform from Hypertherm. There are three systems in all – the Powermax65 SYNC®, Powermax85 SYNC®, and Powermax105 SYNC®, all with built-in intelligence and a single-piece cartridge consumable.

Instead of five consumable parts, Powermax SYNC® systems with their included SmartSYNC® torch, need only one! You don’t need to worry about finding and grabbing the right consumable parts. All you need to do is grab ONE color coded cartridge, screw it onto your torch, and start cutting. Your SmartSYNC® torch will automatically adjust the amperage and choose the right cutting or gouging mode. Your torch will also tell you when the cartridge consumable is worn out and needs to be replaced. You no longer need to check by unscrewing the stack-up and looking at the electrode.

Easy to use

  • One-piece cartridge eliminates consumable confusion and makes inventory management easier.

  • Color-coding helps you find the consumable cartridge you need.

  • SmartSYNC® torch eliminates errors by automatically setting the correct amperage and operating mode.

  • End-of-life detection lets you know when a new cartridge is needed.

Minimizes operating costs

  • Simplified operation cuts down on downtime, troubleshooting, waste, and training time.
  • Cartridge provides up to twice the life for handheld cutting and improved, consistent cut quality in mechanized setups.
  • Cartridge data helps you track performance and analyze usage patterns.

Maximizes performance

  • Interchangeable torches and application-specific cartridges allow you to tackle a range of jobs.
  • Time-saving controls directly on the torch allow you to adjust amperage and change the cartridge consumable without returning to the power supply.

Industry-leading reliability

  • Engineered for rugged, industrial environments.
  • SpringStart™ technology ensures consistent starting and a more reliable torch.
