Maximum productivity

Finish jobs faster, with cut speeds 1.5 times greater than oxyfuel on 6 mm (1/4″) mild steel. Superior cut and gouge quality reduces time for grinding and edge preparation. New torch disable switch feature allows faster, easier changeout of consumables

Rugged and reliable

Duramax® Lock torches are designed for high-impact and heat resistance. SpringStart™ technology ensures consistent starting and optimum torch performance. Hypertherm Certified™ reliability ensures peak performance even in the most demanding environments

Designed for low environmental impact

Plasma cutting efficiency is 11% better than its predecessor, enabling you to cut more steel with less power, in less time. All plasma system components are recyclable. 14% lighter than its predecessor and delivers more cutting power

“My Powermax45 XP worked excellently to cut out bad iron and remove old welds from a 50 ton lowboy trailer I was rebuilding. I was cutting T1 and A656 steel and washing 7018 and AR90 welding rod and wire. I especially liked having the ability to precision gouge. The gouging mode worked way better than I expected. It was so easy to control. I made several light passes on the weld to remove it instead of trying to remove it all at once. It worked so well it helped cut my grinding time in half. I can’t speak highly enough about the system. It has been invaluable for a job like this. Considering the cost of a different trailer or having a shop repair it, the Powermax is more than worth the purchase price and cost for consumables. I estimate it has saved me thousands of dollars in labor costs.”
