Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of advanced plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting systems, will unveil a new Powermax metal cutting system at the 2014 CONEXPO-CON/AGG show for construction industry professionals.
The new system promises to deliver high performance in a small portable package. Features include a two-in-one design for high power cutting on thicker metal and detailed cutting on thinner metal using FineCut® consumables. The recommended cut capacity is 3/8” (10mm) with a severance capacity of 5/8” (16mm) making it ideal for framing walls and ceilings; fabricating roof or floor trusses; and installing roofing, siding, and decking.
Construction crews can use the system to quickly cut galvanized steel channels and corrugated steel panels to length. Plus, they can create holes and openings for running conduit, installing vents and adding skylights. The system is also beneficial when repairing a variety of construction equipment, both in the shop and in the field.
In addition, show visitors will get to see Hypertherm’s new Powermax125 air plasma cutting and gouging system. The Powermax125 offers the most power of any portable air plasma system available today. It features a 1 ½ inch recommended cut capacity and the ability to sever 2 ¼ inch thick metal, while boasting a full 100 percent duty cycle. It is the contractor’s choice for heavy duty fabrication and repair, including plant shut downs. Also on display, more Duramax torch options, including new long-handled plasma torches for cutting skeletons, scrapping, dismantling and other similar jobs.
This year’s show takes place from March 4 to 8 in Las Vegas. In total, more than 125,000 construction companies and industry professionals are expected to descend upon the city for a look at the newest and best equipment for their industry including the new Powermax system.
“Hundreds of construction professionals rely on Hypertherm plasma every day to get the job done,” said Reese Madden, director of North American marketing for Hypertherm. “We look forward to showing them our newest lineup of Powermax products and introducing new customers to the many benefits of Hypertherm’s plasma technology.”
