The Hypertherm Powermax85® is a heavy duty plasma cutting system that can handle a wide range of applications. The Powermax 85 delivers increased cut capacity as well as fast cutting speeds and the ability to gouge.  Capable of clean cutting 32mm Mild steel, the Powermax 85 is simple to operate and features Smart Sense™ automatic gas adjustment for optimal cutting.

The new Duramax® Lock torches support handheld and mechanized cutting of a wider range of metal thicknesses, along with precision gouging such as spot weld removal, and marking capabilities. Robotic cutting/gouging, portable automation and hand cutting are all possible with the Hypertherm Powermax 85.



Drag cutting – For dragging the torch directly across the work piece

Extended reach cutting – For improved visibility & accessibility when cutting in confined spaces

Extended reach gouging – For improved visibility & accessibility when gouging in confined spaces

Fine feature cutting – For narrow kerf width with minimal dross and heat affected zone

Max control gouging – For precise metal removal, shallower gouge profiles and light metal washing

Flush cutting – For cutting closer to base materials using a 45 degree

Max removal gouging – For aggressive metal removal, deep gouge profiles and extreme metal washing

Mechanized cutting – For portable automation and table cutting



Easy to use

  • A patented shield for drag cutting allows full power cutting with minimal dross build up
  • Smart Sense™ technology ensures that air pressure is always correctly set for optimum cutting performance.  The machine will auto compensate for a longer torch or changes in cutting parameters.
  • Simplified control panel with LCD screen for easy operation.

Superior performance in a compact package

  • Fast cutting speeds and excellent cut quality let you finish jobs quicker, with fewer secondary operations
  • Built to withstand heavy-duty use in the most demanding environments

Outstanding versatility

  • A wide range of torch and consumable styles to choose from for both handheld and automated processes
  • Extensive array of application capabilities via specialty consumables for fine feature cutting, extended reach cutting, gouging, precision gouging, and marking.

Maximum productivity
