Need to cut steel? Thinking about an oxy acetylene cutting torch to do the job? Consider a plasma cutter. This simple technology uses an electrical arc and compressed air to cut steel, aluminum, and other conductive metals.

The AirForce 12ci is powered by standard household voltage (115 VAC) and comes ready to cut right out of the box—just pull the trigger. It excels at cutting sheet metal and 1/8-inch mild steel, and can even sever 1/4-inch mild steel. The built-in air compressor and lightweight inverter power supply make this plasma cutter the most convenient, totally portable cutting system available.

Compared to the complexities of an oxy fuel cutting torch system, plasma cutting is easy:

  • Cuts faster than oxy fuel
  • More precise cut, thinner kerf, less slag to clean up
  • Smaller heat-affected zone for less warping
  • No gas pressure settings or flame tuning needed
  • No preheating of metal prior to cutting
  • No pressurized gas cylinders to transport
  • No worries about running out of gas on the job
  • No expense for gas refills... ever

The AirForce 12ci comes ready to cut out of the box, with extra replacement tips and a convenient cable management strap for easy transportation. Just pull the trigger and cut.


  • New Inverter Design - Powerful cutting ability in a compact, lightweight package. Weighs only 27 lbs.
  • Built-in Air Compressor - Internal piston-driven air compressor makes the system highly portable. No additional compressor to purchase or transport. Pressure is preset... ready to cut, right out of the box.
  • XT12R Torch - The XT12R torch is designed for increased comfort with an ergonomic trigger safety, more efficient cooling and economical replacement cutting tips.
  • Powered by 120V, 20 amp Circuit - Runs on standard household power. No need for 230 volt hookup by utility company.
  • Post-flow Cooling Circuit - Cools the torch and tip after cutting, extending life of replaceable tip and electrode.
  • Fan-On-Demand - Runs only when needed reducing dust/debris pulled into unit.
  • Diagnostic Lights - LED lights indicate system status for power, temperature, and torch readiness eliminating unnecessary downtime.
  • Thermal Overload Protection - Built to withstand tough working environments. Rated for 35% duty cycle at 104° Fahrenheit. Duty cycle will increase as environmental temperature decreases.
