The Range of Hypertherm machines

Hand Held Plasma Cutting Machines
Air Plasma
Manual Hypertherm Powermax Cutting Machines
Hypertherms' range of air plasma cutting systems sets the standard for air plasma cutting and gouging

Compressed air as the cutting gas
With output currents ranging from 30 to 100 amps
Using nothing more than compressed air as the cutting gas and having the best consumable life in their class, these machines are extremely economical to use.

The current Powermax series of plasma cutters are capable of cutting the following thickness and can, in certain cases, cut more.

Powermax 30 : 10mm capacity (3/8")
Powermax 45 : 19mm capacity (3/4")
Powermax 65 : 25mm capacity (1")
Powermax 85 : 32mm capacity (1-1/4")
Powermax 105 : 38mm capacity (1-1/2")

The following machines are now discontinued, but used models can often be found on our website :
Powermax 1000 : 25mm capacity (1")
Powermax 1250 : 29mm capacity (1-1/8")
Powermax 1650 : 38mm capacity (1-1/2")


Powermax line of single-gas (air or nitrogen) mechanized systems delivers high productivity, low operating cost, superior cut quality and Hypertherm’s unsurpassed reliability. Powermax products are frequently used on X-Y cutting tables, 3-dimensional robots, track cutting systems, and pipe cutting and beveling machines.

Dual-angle design extends nozzle life and lowers operating cost. CNC interface and Fast Connect™ torch torch connection increase versatility for handheld and mechanized usage up to 3/8" (10 mm).

Offering the latest technological innovations, like Smart Sense™ technology to automatically adjust the gas pressure, the Powermax65 helps you do more than ever before. Four Duramax™ torch styles provide greater versatility and enable operators to select the right tool for the job.

The Powermax85 combines the latest technological innovations and 4 Duramax series torch options with 85 amps of cutting power to make it the premier 1" air plasma system for handheld or mechanized cutting and gouging.

G3 Series
With uncompromised power and performance, the Powermax1650 plasma cutting system delivers superior cut capabilities on metals up to 3/4" (19 mm).

Oxygen Plasma Cutter
Hyspeed Plasma: HSD130

Hypertherm's new Hyspeed HSD 130 oxygen gas plasma cutting system has been introduced to fill the gap between the Powermax 1650 and the HPR 130.

The cost effective oxygen and air plasma cutter gives our customers, with a high production requirement, access to Longlife oxygen technology... giving higher cutting speeds, virtually dross free cutting on mild steel and a much, much higher consumable life.

Flexibility to convert this machine with an additional fuel gas console, gives you one of the lowest cost per cut ratios on the market, allowing you to cut stainless with F5 and H35 gas combinations for the highest cut qualities.

With the additional option of the Plasma Torch Height Control, this plasma cutter gives the accuracy and lack of waste not offered by many other systems.

Multi Gas Plasma Cutting Systems
Hypertherm Max 100: Heavy Duty Cutting 32mm Capacity
Hypertherm Max 200: Heavy Duty and High Capacity Cutting
50mm (2") capacity

The Max 100 and 200 is one of Hypertherms' most established machines. The 200 has an output current of 200 amps giving it the capability to sever 60mm by hand and cut 25mm on a CNC cutting machine.

Built like a tank this machine is happy working under the most extreme conditions, including scrap metal yards and metal fabrication companies.

It has the ability to use many different plasma and shield gas configurations allowing you to cut a wide range of materials.

The MAX200 continues Hypertherm's tradition of combining advanced technology and superior quality to deliver operating advantages that are unmatched in the industry.

An Entry-level oxygen cutting system, great for often-changing cutting requirements and production schedules. A proven production cutting system with an attractive initial capital cost.

Operating data

HySpeed HSD130 
HySpeed 130-amp system with the fastest cut speeds in this class, rapid pierce, and minimal secondary operations, you will be more productive.

HySpeed HT2000

HySpeed 200-amp oxygen plasma cutting system with HySpeed plasma and LongLife™ oxygen technology.

Production Cutting - CNC plasma table
Production cutting generally means that you will be cutting pretty much continuously for at least a shift a day, 5 to 6 days a week. If you have the need to do that, especially on materials up to 5/8", then you need a machine that can pierce and cut 5/8" without running into duty cycle issues.

The Powermax 600 is specialised for piercing 3/8", same for the 800 and 900, the 1000 is specialised for piercing 1/2".
Each of these systems, when operating in its production cutting range are in the 50% to 60% duty cycle range.
It is recommended the 1000 be the only model used for piercing 5/8" but it would run out of duty cycle periodically if cutting continuously on 5/8" material.
There could be an issue on high ambient temperature days.

For industrial applications that truly cut all day long on multiple shifts on 5/8" material it is recommended a 100% duty cycle plasma such as the HSD130 (100% duty cycle, liquid cooled torch, oxygen cutting capability) or a Max200 (100%, liquid cooled, air or oxygen).
These are 3 phase only industrial plasma systems.

For used air plasma systems you could be close to the ability to cut 5/8" on a production basis with a Powermax1250 or better, a Powermax1650 (3 phase only).

If you are not cutting 8 hours a day 5 days a week but material 3/8" and 1/2"..and occasionally 5/8" a Powermax1000 would be good on a cnc machine. This would not be then considered production cutting.
A Powermax85 on a CNC machine is suitable but will only reach 45 or 65 amps, with close to 100% duty cycle when cutting 5/8" at 65 amps.
