Hobart® AirForce® 40i Plasma Cutter 500576
The completely redesigned Hobart® AirForce™ 40i produces up to 40 amps of cutting power and operates on either 120 volt or 240 input. It weighs only 22 pounds, yet cuts up to 7/8 inch mild steel. The AirForce 40i comes complete with MVP™ (multi-voltage plug) technology which allows you to run off of standard 120 volt OR 240 volt input power. Voltage changeover is simple and requires no tools.
The AirForce 40i features the ergonomically designed XT40R plasma torch that boasts more flexible cables and longer plasma consumable life than previous models. The 40i requires compressed air delivery of at least 6.0 cfm @ 90 to 120 psi. It has a rated cutting capacity of 5/8 inch thick mild steel @ 60% duty cycle and a maximum cutting capacity on mild steel of 7/8 inch. Unit is compatible with engine-driven welders with at least 8 kW of generator power with a 240 volt receptacle.Processes
Air Plasma Cutting
MVP™ adapters - Allow connection to 120 or 240 V receptacles without tools—choose the adapter cord with the right plug that fits
the receptacle, and connect it to the power cord with the L6-30R twist lock.
XT40R torch - Designed for increased comfort with an ergonomic trigger safety, more efficient cooling and economical replacement
Pilot arc controller - Allows you to cut expanded/perforated metals, as well as painted or coated surfaces, without retriggering the torch.
Wind Tunnel Technology™ - Prevents abrasive dust and particles from damaging internal components.
Fan-On-Demand™ - Cooling system operates only when needed reducing power consumption and contaminants drawn into the machine.
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.
LVC™ line voltage compensation - Provides peak performance power under variable input voltage conditions (±15%) for steady and cleaner-ending cuts.
Internal gas/air filter and regulator - Controls amount of usage and flow of air or gas.
Starts without high frequency - Protects unit by not interfering with or damaging controls or computers.
Diagnostic lights - LED lights for quick troubleshooting of pressure, power and cup situations.
Postflow cooling circuit - Extends life of consumables and torch by cooling them with postflow air after trigger is released.
Automatic gouging consumable detection - Adjusts gas pressure to optimize performance, eliminating the need for a manual regulator.
Compatible with engine-driven welders - Complete cutting capability when powered by an engine-driven welder/generator with a 240 V receptacle of 8 kW or more.
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).
