Product Summary


Play Video

The Northern Industrial Welders Plasma Cutter features powerful, yet lightweight inverter technology for smooth cutting. Handles almost any project you can throw at it, from mild steel to copper, brass, stainless and aluminum up to 1/8in. Cuts faster and more precise with a thinner kerf and less slag than cutting with oxy fuel. A smaller heat-affected zone also causes less warping. No gas pressure settings, flame tuning, metal preheating, or gas cylinders or refills to worry about, ever.

What's Included

  • (1) Plasma Cutter
  • (1) 18.5ft. cable and torch lead
  • (1) 10ft. ground cable and clamp
  • (1) Additional electrodes and nozzle
Easy to Use

Easy to Use - Ready for Action

Ready to Use, Right Out of the Box

The all-inclusive Plasma 275 comes packaged and ready-to-go with just about everything you need to get the job done right — including extra torch electrodes and nozzles. Just provide some shop compressed air and you'll be off and cutting.

Powered by Standard Household Current

The Plasma 275 conveniently runs off of a standard 120V, 20A electrical circuit — the same type of electrical circuit that you're likely to find in almost any home, garage or shop in town. Just plug it in and you're set!

No Dangerous Cutting Gases

The Plasma 275 uses regular shop compressed air to create a safe, yet very effective, plasma cutting arc. No need to bring volatile cutting gases into your shop or garage.

Tough, Capable and Versatile

Cuts Any Conductive Metal

Whether you're working on steel, stainless steel, aluminum, galvanized steel, copper or brass, if the material can conduct electricity with little effort, the Plasma 275 can cut it. Make clean cuts in up to 1/8 in. steel, or sever cuts in up to 1/4 in. steel.

Clean Cuts with Minimal Warping

Plasma cutting efficiently reduces heat retention in the metal. Less heat means less heat-affected area, resulting in less warping and less material damage or post-cutting cleanup.

Trigger Only Once

The built-in pilot arc feature really comes in handy when cutting items such as chainlink fences or expanded metal. No need to retrigger each time you hit an open gap of air; the pilot arc keeps the arc on, allowing you to quickly and accurately move to the next target section. The result is faster cuts PLUS less wear and tear on your electrodes and nozzles.

Loaded with Features

Loaded with Features

You Control the Air Pressure

Now it's easy to keep your air pressure at the best levels for optimal cutting performance. An easy-to-view pressure light automatically turns on to warn you when the air pressure from the compressor gets too low. Plus an adjustable on-board air regulator prevents excessive air pressure from entering the machine and causing damage.

Get Cutting Specs at a Glance

A quick-reference cutting chart is located in easy view on the front panel of the cutter. The handy chart indicates the thickness of different types of materials this unit can cut at a rate of 10 inches per minute. It also shows sever capacity.

The Convenience of Interchangeable Parts

The Plasma 275 includes a high-quality 18-ft. Trafimet® Torch — the same plasma torch used on other Northern Industrial Welders brand plasma cutters such as the Plasma 375 (Item #164610). If you have multiple plasma cutters, one set of parts can service both compatible units!

Use it Anywhere

Performance on the Go

Enjoy the freedom of plasma cutting almost anywhere. Built-in inverter technology makes this unit a powerful, yet very lightweight, performer. The quick-connect torch and ground cable provide easy setup and take-down, while a convenient carry handle encourages you to take it along with you.

Detail Work on Your Prized Possessions

If you’re looking to restore that prized old car or take care of your own body work, the excellent plasma characteristics ensure quality cuts. No matter how delicate or tough the project may be, you’ll be able to cut with confidence.

Use it Anywhere
Safety matters

Safety Matters

No More Overheating

Be it a hot day or a larger cutting project, the thermal overload protection ensures that your plasma cutter will stay safe no matter how hard you run it. A built-in thermostat prevents the unit from overheating, delaying power to the motor until the unit has sufficiently cooled. The unit also safely shuts down in over-voltage or insufficient voltage situations.

Know When You're Ready

A highly visible work indicator light mounted on the front of the unit shines brightly whenever you are cutting, so there's no mistaking that the unit is in full operating mode.

Stays Safely Grounded

To further protect the user against improper usage, the 275 Plasma Cutter requires a ground clamp to be properly secured before the unit will operate. If the ground clamp comes loose, the unit safely and immediately shuts down.

Cut with Confidence
