Hypertherm has launched its new, portable plasma-cutting system: the Powermax30 XP. Said to be 50 percent more powerful than its predecessor — the Powermax125 — this high-performing, easy-to-use system contains a redesigned Duramax torch and consumables that last twice as long as those found on the Powermax30 for a lower operating cost. Additional features include a two-in-one design for high-power cutting on thick metal and detailed cutting on thin metal.
