Replacement torch for a hypotherm powermax 45

Postby 9731Diesel » Tue May 15, 2018 11:17 am

Was wondering if there was a replacement torch for the 45t torch. Was hoping there was a replacement that offered fine cut consumables.

Yes there is. You can order the same torches used on the Powermax45XP, 65, 85 and 105 for use on the original Powermax45. This will allow the use of Finecut consumables and will give you longer consumable life as compared to the original torch. If you let me know what torch lead length and is it a hand torch or machine torch I can help with part numbers. Jim Colt Hypertherm [email protected]

Jim I wasn't aware of being able to use the 45XP torch on the Powermmax 45 original either. Does this mean I can swap my Powermax 45 machine torch on my Torchmate 2 x 4 to use the 45 XP machine torch without need to change the power supply to the 45XP?

It certainly does!
I swapped last year, getting far more consistent cuts with edge angularity now, the finecuts are superb as well.
For feed rates and volts use 45XP chart, strangely volts are very close whereas the old torch was around - 10v to book!
It's a good upgrade I would say.
I should have just bought the torch but thought a upgrade to the XP was in order, had problems maybe with my machine so sold the XP unit and use the old 45.
The lock switch on the XP torch doesn't work on the old 45 though.

I use the 65 machine torch on my 45XP.. Just to give other options, on finding a better deal on torches for your standard 45..
