The AirForce 500i is an economical plasma cutting system for all conductive metals. The inverter-based design and reliable technology pack a lot of performance into a very portable package. It excels at cutting thin sheet metal to 3/8-inch mild steel plate, and can even sever cut 5/8-inch mild steel.
This power source adapts to your work site by operating from either 115 or 230 VAC power through standard household outlet using the Multi-Voltage Plug (MVP). Changing the plug requires no tools - easily install the plug that fits the receptacle.
The AirForce 500i is easy to setup and use. Just plug-in the unit, connect the compressed air supply, ground the workpiece, pull the trigger and cut.
Cuts any conductive metal. 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.
AirForce 500i with MVP, HP-50 torch with 16.5 ft (5 m) lead and consumables, 16.5 ft (5 m) heavy duty work clamp, Extra consumables (2 electrodes, 2 tips), 1 airline fitting, 10-ft. (3 m) power cord with 5-15P (115 V, 15 A) and 6-50P (230 V, 50 A) MVP plugs, standoff guide, and owners manual.

A compact, light weight unit, perfect for home hobby use. It has the ability to cut 1/2 black iron plate, but it is a slow process. 1/4" material cuts fine. Read morePublished 23 days ago by scott bohlman
