The new AirForce™ 12ci Plasma Cutter with Built-In Air Compressor features an inverter design that is both lightweight and powerful. The new XT series torch and longer life XT tips and electrodes provide added performance to an already exceptional plasma cutter. The unit features a built-in compressor for total portability and low system cost. Cuts mild steel up to 1/4in. thick using standard household current. The new XT12R torch is more comfortable, efficient and economical. Plasma cutters cut faster and more precisely with a thinner kerf and less slag than cutting with oxy fuel. A smaller heat-affected zone also causes less warping. And you’ll never have gas pressure settings, flame tuning, metal preheating, or gas cylinders or refills to worry about.

Versatility is Standard Equipment

Easily Handle a Variety of Metals and Thicknesses

The AirForce 12ci™ plasma cutter slices right through a wide variety of materials. Clean-cut 1/8in. steel, sever 1/4in. steel, cut 1/16in. stainless, aluminum, galvanized, brass or copper. Versatility is its specialty!

Powerful Performance at Half the Weight

The lightweight yet powerful inverter design delivers exceptional cutting performance, but at just under 27lbs., it weighs about half of what comparable standard plasma cutter models weigh, resulting in exceptional portability!

Uses Standard Household Power

Powered by a 120V, 20 Amp circuit, this plasma cutter only requires standard household power to run like a dream. No need for special 240V hookup by the utility company; just plug it in at home or in the garage or workshop and you’re ready to cut!

Piston-Driven Air Compressor Adds Portability

The built-in piston-driven air compressor operates from within the plasma cutter. There’s no additional air compressor to purchase or drag along to operate the system, so the AirForce 12Ci™ is highly portable.

Built for Lasting Performance

Cooler Tips and Electrodes = Fewer Replacements

Standard plasma cutters stay hot for quite awhile, even after they’re done cutting. But the Post-Flow Cooling feature on the AirForce 12Ci™ quickly cools the torch after your cut, helping to extend the life of the tips and electrodes that you just finished using.

Pilot Arc Starts Minimize Tip Burnout

The internal pilot arc creates a small arc inside the nozzle, then starts a “real” arc when the mini plasma touches the work. The pilot arc doesn’t require you to touch the work, saving on your tips, and also allows you to more easily start the cutter on rusty, painted or greasy surfaces.

Quick Troubleshooting Indicators

Diagnostic LED lights are built right in to aid in status checks and troubleshooting of power, temperature and torch readiness. The lights make it easy to quickly assess the situation at a glance.

Protection from Overloads

Thermal Overload Protection allows the plasma cutter to withstand tough work environments and shuts the unit down to help prevent machine damage if the duty cycle is exceeded or the airflow is blocked. Rated for 35% duty cycle at 104°F. Duty cycle will increase as environmental temperatures decrease.
