Software supports tube cutting with plasma, laser, waterjet, oxyfuel
Hypertherm has released Rotary Tube Pro™ software to help users design and cut tube and pipe parts with no 3-D CAD experience required. It supports plasma, laser, waterjet, and oxyfuel cutting processes for almost all brands of tube cutting machines, including stand-alone units and cutting table add-ons. In addition, it supports perpendicular cutting as a standard feature and bevel cutting as an optional module.
The software features a parametric design interface that allows main tubes and side-wall cutouts to be added from a list of predefined shapes. Alternatively, users can add tubes and cutouts directly from a CAD program. The software also includes an optional rotary bevel interface provided with bevel cut charts based on True Bevel™ technology.
