Applications

Maximum productivity

  • Finish jobs faster with cut speeds one and a half times greater than oxyfuel on 12 mm (1/2”) mild steel
  • Superior cut and gouge quality let you spend less time on grinding and edge preparation
  • Multiple, easy-to-use torch styles let you tackle a wide variety of jobs using the same system

Easy-to-use for cutting and gouging

  • No need to change the air pressure – Smart Sense™ technology ensures that it is always correctly set
  • SpringStart™ technology ensures consistent starting and a more reliable torch
  • Drag cut at full output with a patented shield that reduces dross buildup for smoother cutting

Rugged and reliable

  • Hypertherm Certified™ reliability ensures peak performance even in the harshest environments
  • Duramax™ torches are designed for high-impact and heat resistance
