XR Plasma.

Fast Efficient Standard Definition Cutting

The XR Plasma is a heavy duty machine using Hypertherm Powermax air plasma systems. It boasts a large cut area to footprint ratio that makes it ideal for areas with limited floor space. The XR Plasma inherits all of the functionality, durability and superior motion performace from ART's high end machines.
