Hypertherm Plasma Cutting Systems
Hypertherm has lots of engineers focused on cutting technology. In fact, we believe we employ more engineers than any other plasma manufacturer out there. At least 10 percent of Hypertherm Associates work in engineering. These engineers, who like all Hypertherm Associates own a stake in the company, work hard. They are responsible for countless inventions and technology breakthroughs impacting everything from power output to the amount of time your consumables last. A few Hypertherm inventions (all patented or in the process of being patented) include:
Auto-Voltage™ — Allows you to use a wide variety of input voltages with no manual linking of any kind.
Boost Conditioner™ — Makes it possible for the system to grab the maximum amount of power from any given line including low-voltage and generators.
Advanced Axial Swirl Ring — Perfectly aligns the long vented nozzle and swirl ring near the tip of the electrode to ensure the correct amount of gas flow and optimal consumable life.
Coaxial-assist™ Jet — Uses a unique design to split the air into plasma gas and a secondary gas that coaxially surrounds the plasma arc. This increases the energy density and velocity of the arc.
Conical Flow™ — Further increases the energy density of the arc for better cut quality with little dross.
