The Powermax 30 AIR is a plasma arc cutting system with an integrated air compressor. With it, you can cut electrically conductive metals—such as mild steel, stainless steel, or aluminum—of thicknesses up to 10 mm (3/8 inches). You can also pierce thicknesses up to 6 mm (1/4 inch).
Generally, plasma torches create thermal plasma by harnessing direct current (DC) discharge. Although thermal plasma is most commonly generated using DC discharge, others such as alternating current (AC) or radio frequency may be used to create thermal plasma cutters.
Plasma torches (also known as plasma cutters) are devices used to create a directed flow of plasma—resulting in an effective and efficient way to cut various electrically conductive metals. There are many benefits of plasma cutters.
Benefits of the Powermax 30 AIR
- Internal air compressor lets you operate anywhere—maximum portability and ease of use
- Plugs into either a 120-volt or 240-volt outlet with the included plug adapters
- Lightweight, ergonomic hand torch reduces cramping and soreness
- Adding to its portability, it’s the lightest and smallest system in its class
Faster, more versatile
- High efficiency: fast cutting speeds and amazing cut quality reduces secondary operations
- Continuous pilot arc feature lets you quickly and easily cut rusted metal or metal grate without retriggering
- Only one tool is needed for a variety of cutting functions - large-range of metal thicknesses and types
Reliable, robust, and cost-effective
- Internal air compressor eliminates the unnecessary costs of with external air compressors
- Rugged design withstands the elements
- High performance from Hypertherm, a trusted brand

Oxy-fuel welding and cutting
Oxy-fuel welding and cutting (also referred as oxyacetylene welding, oxy-welding, or gas-welding) are processes that use fuel gases to burn pure oxygen to achieve high temperatures—allowing the user to weld and cut metals.
Plasma cutting and welding v. oxy-fuel welding and cutting
The average cost of using a plasma torch is about 37% cheaper per foot, which, over time can save you a big chunk of change. In regions with high labor rates, such as the US, Canada, Europe, etc., it’s extremely important to achieve the highest efficiency possible to maximize your profit. Due to its ability to obtain a high-capacity and high-speed in fabrication operations, plasma torches are the clear-cut preference over oxy-fuel torches.
