Hypertherm has announced the release of the new True Bevel™ edge-profiling technology. It includes factory-tested mild steel cut charts for all of the company's HyPerformance® HPRXD® plasma systems.
The cut charts contain parameters to help reduce the amount of time and effort required to produce quality bevels using plasma. The company plans to embed the cut charts in its CNC/CAM software and make it available to its partners for inclusion with their proprietary CNC/CAM systems.
The company also has introduced other technologies for its plasma system line. They include new HyDefinition inox (HDi) technology, which cuts stainless steel less than 0.25 in. thick; the patented PowerPierce® technology; and a controlled-motion pierce process that enables piercing on stainless steel up to 4 in. thick. A new set of parameters delivers improved fine-feature cutting on mild steel up to 1 in. thick.
