Powermax30 AIR plasma cutter

Despite its small size, the Powermax30® AIR delivers big performance. This small air plasma cutter the smallest, lightest handheld plasma cutter in its class includes its own built-in air compressor. That's right, it's a small plasma cutter with a built-in compressor so you can use the Powermax30 AIR anywhere theres single-phase power. Just plug it in, attach the work clamp and youre ready to cut. It's even dual-voltage. You can use it as a 120 V plasma cutter or at 240 V. Regardless of which power input (120 V or 240 V) you choose, we think you'll agree the Powermax30 AIR is the best plasma cutter with built-in compressor available today.

System information


Drag cutting

For dragging the torch directly across the work piece

Unsupported Applications

Extended reach cutting

For improved visibility and accessibility when cutting in confined spaces

Extended reach gouging

For improved visibility and accessibility when gouging in confined spaces

Fine feature cutting

For narrow kerf width with minimal dross and heat affected zone

Flush cutting

For cutting closer to base materials using a 45 degree


For scoring, indicating part identification, hole or weld locations

Max control gouging

For precise metal removal, shallower gouge profiles and light metal washing

Max removal gouging

For aggressive metal removal, deep gouge profiles, and extreme metal washing

Try Powermax125

Mechanized cutting

For portable automation and table cutting

Precision gouging

For spot and tack weld removal at very low output current (<25 A)


Easy to set up and operate

  • Internal compressor eliminates the need for an external air compressor and filter
  • Plug into any 120 or 240 V power (convenient Auto-Voltage technology and plug adapters included)

Superior performance in a compact package

  • Patent-pending consumable design enables consistent cutting by optimizing the airflow from the compact, internal compressor
  • Quickly cut metal grate or rusted metal without retriggering with the continuous pilot arc feature
  • Fast cutting speeds and superior cut quality let you finish jobs quicker, with fewer secondary operations

Relative cut performance on mild steel (chart)

Exceptional versatility

  • Just one tool is all you need to cut a variety of metal types and thicknesses
  • Small size and light weight let you take the Powermax30 AIR to the work, rather than bringing the work to the system an ideal solution for a wide range of cutting applications
  • Built to withstand heavy-duty use in the most demanding environments
