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™ 500i is an economical plasma cutting system for all conductive metals. Inverter-based design and reliable technology pack a lot of performance into a very portable package. This power source adapts to your work site by operating from either 115 or 230 VAC power through standard household outlet using the Multi-Voltage Plug (MVP).

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
Features:
  • New Inverter Design - Powerful cutting ability at half the weight of prior model (AirForce 400). Weighs only 27.8 lbs.
  • Capable with Engine-Driven Welders - Complete cutting capability when powered by an engine-driven welder with a 240 V generator power outletof 6 kW or more.
  • New Ergonomic Torch - The new HP-50 torch is designed for increased comfort, more efficient cooling and economical replacement cutting tips.
  • Multi-Voltage Plug (MVP) - Allows you to connect to common 120 or 230 V power receptacles without the use of any tools - simply choose the plug that fits the receptacle
  • Post-flow Air Cooling - 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.
  • Wind Tunnel Technology - Prevents abrasive dust and particles from damaging internal components.
  • 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.
  • Cable Management Strap - Secures torch, work cable and power cord to make transporting easy and convenient.
  • Line Voltage Compensation (LVC) - Provides peak performance power under variable input voltage conditions (±15%) for steady and cleaner ending cuts.
  • Power Factor Correction - Expands operator’s work area via extension cords while minimizing nuisance trips caused by voltage drops.

Comes with:

  • HP-50 torch with 16.5 ft (5 m) lead and consumables
  • 16.5 ft (5 m) heavy duty work clamp
