40 Amp Auto-Voltage Plasma Cutter (CNC-Ready)
The FORCECUT 42i is capable of being hooked up to most portable compressors and generators. Powered by IGBT inverter technology, the Longevity FORCECUT 42i is lightweight and more reliable than other units on the market using out-of-date technology.
Longevity FORCECUT 42i - 40 Amp Auto-Voltage Plasma Cutter (CNC-Ready)
Longevity wanted to create a unit for the on-the-go user, something that was portable yet performed up to the expectations of the customer all while maintaining Longevity's priority on value. The FORCECUT 42i meets all the required criteria and more!
The FORCECUT 42i is capable of being hooked up to most portable compressors and generators. Powered by IGBT inverter technology, the FORCECUT 42i is lightweight and more reliable than other units on the market using out-of-date technology.
The FORCECUT 42i only weighs 41 lbs. and runs off 110/220v 1 phase voltage making this unit the most portable plasma cutters on the market for its power. The FORCECUT 42i offers quality cutting of up to .78" (20mm) and rough cuts of up to .98"(25mm).
Variable Amp Adjustment
Longevity offers variable amps adjustments and not presets on the FORCECUT 42i. This allows users to pinpoint the correct setting while cutting.
Efficient IGBT Inverter Technology
IGBT technology has taken the welding industry to new levels. It gives us the ability to offer smaller units that weigh less while increasing efficiency. The FORCECUT 42i with its portable design can be powered by the 8500-watt generator. Longevity uses IGBT technology powered by Siemens because of the increase in performance and better reliability than outdated inverter technology. Put the oxy torch away and give our plasma cutters a try. You will never go back!
On out-of-date plasma cutters, when the arc is interrupted the trigger must be disengaged to restart the arc. With the FORCECUT 42i plasma cutter, the Pilot Arc system automatically senses the loss of voltage and re-ignites the Pilot Arc allowing for the torch head to maintain an arc when cutting. This is effectively allowing you to not worry about the cutting height, cut speed, and it allows you to cut expanded metal. Pilot Arc technology allows for you to always have power to the arc which increases your cutting speed and assists with uneven cutting surfaces.
Blowback Arc Start / CNC Ready
The FORCECUT 42i starts the arc by creating an internal spark to ignite the plasma arc. By using air pressure to move the electrode against the nozzle, the FORCECUT 42i creates the arc without any need for high frequency. This allows for easier CNC table integration without the worry of interference.
Built In Air Filter And Regulator
Built in gas/air filter and regulator provides air filtration of airborne particles to keep the FORCECUT 42i cutting clean and efficiently.

FORCECUT 42i Plasma CutterOverall Quality90%I bought this plasma cutter because I often have to cut some metal parts. Its portability and dual voltage allow me to use the machine in different sites. With this cutter my cutting job turns out more accurate and clean. Pilot Arc provides longer life of consumables.

FORCECUT 42i Plasma CutterOverall Quality90%This machine that I acquired two months ago helps me to do a lot of cutting job in a shop. No any complaint! It is very portable and at the same time powerful plasma cutter. I note that Longevity customer service is on the high level.

FORCECUT 42i Plasma CutterOverall Quality90%this machine is a hot butter knife cutting frozen butter. Awesome machine. would recommend buying extra scrap you will need it from all the fun you will have cutting.

FORCECUT 42i Plasma CutterOverall Quality90%I got my 42i about a month ago and I love it.Reaching for the 42i for a quick cut verses draging out my torches is no contest.I still use my torches on my mobile welding truck but that will change as soon as I get a gas compressor.In my opinion you wont go wrong with this dual voltage powerhouse. AND yes it will cut an inch thick.

FORCECUT 42i Plasma CutterOverall Quality90%Well after waiting for my new cutter to come in it finally came, and me being me I wanted to try it out right away. When speaking to the sales rep over the phone he told me that the unit has had the issue with the air fitting corrected, that is half true, it is a new connector from what are seen on the videos but it is not a standard NTP fitting... (at the time of this review I am still unsure of what it is.) Also a few of the items that were suppose to be included with the item were missing. The main part being the 110v adapter, thankfully I have one from another piece of equipment in my shop but still need to get another one for this machine. And finally to top this all off, I try to call customer support to get this all figured out and I get the run around going on nearly an hour now to just get to talk to someone. All I want is to use this machine, but it seems as if something is not letting me.

FORCECUT 42i Plasma CutterOverall Quality90%I had always wanted a plasma cutter to compliment my welder. Having a cutting torch I could cut metal but wanted to be able to do more. After some research into plasma cutters I knew I wanted something that would cut thicker metal than some of the smaller name brand machines and found this site. I liked the 42i more than the rest both for it's size and the ability to use 110 or 220 power. I've had mine for over 2 years now and while I don't use it a lot, it works great every time. I've cut metal over 1/2" with very smooth cuts. It's got a learning curve, but only because I tend to learn as I go. Follow the directions and you'll be cutting like a pro. The price for what you get was another plus and makes this machine pretty affordable for what you get. Since purchasing this machine, I only use my cutting torch to heat and bend metal now. I do suggest purchasing extra consumables to have on hand. Overall a great machine, reasonable price and well worth having in the shop.
