So about two months ago I hooked my Everlast Power plasma 82i to my Crossfire Pro table. I wired it up using the CNC plug that comes with the 82i. I’m using the raw voltage and trigger pins on the CNC plug.
The one word that best describes my experience with the Everlast 82i would be “consistent” Using the 1.3mm tips @75 amps I can cut 11 gauge at 220 IPM, 1/4" @100ipm, and 1/2" @ 50ipm. I’m sure it can cut thicker than 1/2" I just don’t have any 3/4" or 1" material to cut. lol When this thing is running you can literally walk way from the machine and just let it do it’s thing. You get almost zero bevel on 1/2" thick material.
The smallest tips I’ve run is the 1.2mm tips @ 65amps. You can get as small as .9mm tips that run at 30amps. Since the 1.3mm tips cut with a .055" kerf and can create great cuts in 11 gauge material I really have no reason to use the smaller tips so far.
Before I purchased my Everlast Power Plasma 82i I ran the Razorweld Razorcut 45 with the X45 hand torch. I ran the Razorcut 45 for an entire year. I was able to get some really nice cuts with that but anything over 3/16" was just a battle. I had to babysit the Razorweld every time it cut.
My Everlast 82i makes my crossfire pro feel like a commercial grade machine. The machine torch is really great. I love being able to change consumables without removing the torch. If you’re looking to take your crossfire pro to the next level you’ve got to get the Everlast Power Plasma 82i.
People ask me how I think it stacks up to the Hypertherm Powermax 85. I don’t have a Powermax 85 and now that I’ve tried the Everlast Power Plasma 82i I can say that I never will. The Hypertherm cost $3,100.00 more. Overall you might be able to cut 5% faster if you spend the extra $3,100.00
