Why choose the Powermax65 SYNC™ Plasma System?

Instead of five consumable parts, Powermax SYNC systems with their included SmartSYNC™ torch, need only one! Your SmartSYNC™ torch will automatically adjust the amperage and choose the right cutting or gouging mode. Your torch will also tell you when the cartridge consumable is worn out and needs to be replaced. You no longer need to check by unscrewing the stack-up and looking at the electrode. Read the following articles for more information.
