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™ 40i 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. The Airforce™ 40i plasma cutting system is excellent for light and heavy industrial users. Automated operations are also well within its range. Unit is compatible with engine-driven welders when powered with a 240 V generator power outlet of 8 kW or more.


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
Comes complete with:
  • XT40R torch with 12 ft (3.66 m) lead and consumables
  • Heavy-duty work clamp with cable
  • 10 ft. (3 m) power cord with 230 VAC, 50 A plug
Input Power:
  • 120 VAC, 20 amp circuit, single phase
  • 120 VAC, 15 amp circuit, single phase
  • 240 VAC, 50 amp circuit, single phase
