Hypertherm has introduced three new air plasma systems called Powermax SYNC.

The new generation of Powermax65/85/105 systems feature built-in intelligence and a single-piece cartridge consumable.  

Powermax SYNC and its SmartSYNC torch replaces the traditional five-piece consumable stack-up with a single colour-coded cartridge. Technology embedded in each cartridge automatically sets the correct amperage, air pressure, and operating mode and lets operators know when a new cartridge is needed. Additionally, controls on the torch allow operators to adjust the amperage and change the cartridge without returning to the power supply.  

The cartridge is manufactured as a single piece so everything within it is aligned and optimized. As a result, Hypertherm says, the cartridge will last up to twice as long and deliver cleaner cuts versus traditional consumables. It can also track data, like starts and arc-on time, to identify trends.

“The Powermax SYNC series delivers incredible ease of use, a lower operating cost, and better performance than any other air plasma before it,” said Erik Brine, general manager of Hypertherm’s Powermax team. “This simplified operation serves to help fabricators address many of the toughest challenges they face today by eliminating operator errors, downtime, troubleshooting, waste, and training time, while offering the same industry leading reliability all Powermax systems are known for.”
