Duramax™ torches

Duramax torches are designed for durability and reliability. Spring Start™ technology in the electrode eliminates moving parts in the torch and ensures consistent reliable starting. Electrode end-of-life detection in the power supply combines with long consumable life to reduce operating costs.

The Duramax torch series includes torches for handheld and mechanized cutting and gouging, and robotic cutting.

Duramax torches are compatible with the Powermax105, 85, and 65 systems.
