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™ 27i 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 120V or 240V 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

Versatile, powerful cutting in a lightweight power source.
Inverter-based design and reliable technology pack a lot of performance into a very portable package. The Airforce 27i features a multi-voltage plug (MVP™) that allows you to connect to common 120- or 240-volt power receptacles without using any tools. You can easily transport this plasma cutter to the job, connect to power and begin cutting up to 5/8-inch material on 240-volt power quickly.

  1. Dual-Voltage capability with MVP (Multi-Voltage Plug)- Allows you to connect to common 120 or 240 V power receptacles without the use of any tools - simply choose the plug that fits the receptacle.
  2. XT30R torch- Designed for increased comfort with an ergonomic trigger safety, more efficient cooling and economical replacement cutting tips.
  3. Wind Tunnel Technology™- Prevents abrasive dust and particles from damaging internal components.
  4. Fan-On-Demand™- Cooling system operates only when needed reducing power consumption and contaminants drawn into the machine.
  5. Power factor correction (PFC) circuitry - Draws up to 30% less amperage for the same cutting range as compared to the competition. PFC expands operators work area via extension cord, while minimizing nuisance circuit breaker trips caused by voltage drops.
  6. LVC™ line voltage compensation - Provides peak performance power under variable input voltage conditions (+/- 15%) for steady and cleaner-ending cuts.
  7. Internal gas/air filter and regulator - Controls amount of usage and flow or air or gas.
  8. Starts without high frequency- Protects unit by not interfering with or damaging controls or computers.
  9. Diagnostics lights - LED lights for quick troubleshooting of pressure, power and cup situations.
  10. Postflow cooling circuit - Extends life of consumables and torch by cooling them with postflow air after trigger is released.
  11. Compatible with engine-driven welders - Complete cutting capability when powered by an engine- driven welder/generator with 240V receptacle of 4 kW or more.
  12. Hobart 5/3/1 industrial warranty- Five-year warranty on transformers, stabilizers and main rectifiers; three years on generators, PC boards and drive systems; and one year on guns (MIG, Plasma and TIG torches).
