Hypertherm BS 30AIR NA 2004 XL portable air plasma systemClick image to enlargeHypertherm's new Powermax30 Air is a portable air plasma system and internal compressor in one for on-the-go cutting.

With the built in compressor and the ability to operate on both 120 or 240 volt lines, the Powermax30 AIR is a versatile system that enables metal cutting just about anywhere. Weighing only 30 lb (13.5 kg) it provides 30 amps of output giving it the highest power to weight ratio of any system in its class, according to Hypertherm.

“Hypertherm is setting new performance and portability standards with this new model,” explains Harry Mellott, a Hypertherm Powermax specialist. “With a recommended cut capacity of 5/16” (8 mm) and a severance capacity of 5/8” (16 mm) the system can easily and quickly cut a variety of metal types and thicknesses making it a great entry level cutting tool for a variety of professions, as well as home users.”

This high power to weight ratio is due in part to several engineering advances including an all new patent-pending consumable design that optimizes air flow from the compact internal compressor. This design directly contributes to the efficiency of the system and delivers consistent cut performance.
