Hypertherm Powermax 1650
This is another incredible invention by Hypertherm completely dominating the different aspects of metal cutting and gouging. That’s because the Powermax 1650 plasma cutter is build with performance in mind and while this latest addition comes with everything from the previous G3 Series models, it offers a whole lot more….especially in quality, durability and speed!
First of all, the unit uses the patented T100 torch and T100M mechanized torch which has been proven to produce excellent results, along with it’s contact start arc initiation, safety trigger and coxial assist jet technology, it’s truly unbeatable in terms of performance and reliability.
You will find that this machine is able to perform many different applications including metal scrapping, industrial construction, welding repair services, truck and trailer manufacturing and alot more.
The Hypertherm Powermax 1650 plasma cutter comes with a back-lit LED display that is used to monitors the system status and it clearly shows all the information neccessary to ensure the system is performing to the best of it’s ability. This is also great to use for troubleshooting, especially now that it comes an easy to read air pressure gauge.
Another thing you might notice different in this version is that it comes with a set of wheels as standard! That’s right! If you have a look at the picture above, you can clearly see it and this is extremely useful for operators who are constantly travelling between different operation sites, especially knowing that the unit weights more than 60kg.
Ok, let’s now take a look at it’s specs!

What do we think?
This is a 3 phase plasma cutter that works well with CNC such as a torchmate. Weighing at 61kg, we wouldn’t exactly call this mobile, especially if you are one of those who travels quite often between sites. Regardless, this model has now been discontinued by Hypertherm and replaced with more advanced models such as the Powermax 105 and 125. For this kind of price tag, you can definitely find yourself a newer model packed with the latest technology. So your call…
