Hypertherm launched HDi thin stainless steel technology, the MAXPRO200 and more at EuroBLECH2012

Roosendaal, The Netherlands, — 7 November, 2012 — EuroBLECH2012 – the world’s largest exhibition for the sheet metal working industry – has been a huge success for Hypertherm. The introduction of HyDefinition® Inox (HDi) technology for cutting thin stainless steel, the launch of the MAXPRO200® and the 3.0 kW HyIntensity™ Fiber Laser system were highly appreciated by visitors.


Hypertherm welcomed many visitors from different countries and industries. Attracted by the diversity of the Hypertherm product range and depth, visitors appreciated the new products and technologies shown, the live demo’s with the Powermax105®, CopperPlus™ electrode technology, the HyPro2000™ upgrade torch for MAX200® and HD3070® systems and the extended Centricut® consumable portfolio.


HDi technology for thin stainless steel applications particularly attracted many visitors. For the first time in metal cutting history, HDi for HPRXD® systems brings HyDefinition plasma technology to the thin stainless range, setting new standards in cut quality, cut speed and consumable life. Quickly setup a simple operation with high output quality by only adding new set of 60 amp HDi consumables, and instantly experience superior thin stainless cutting on existing HPRXD installations.


“Hypertherm is excited to lead the way in the full range of stainless steel cutting with new HDi technology for thin stainless, optimized gas mixing for mid-range thicknesses and patented PowerPierce® technology combined with an innovative controlled pierce process for the thickest piercing and cutting capability available”, said Theo Cornielje, Regional Director for the EMEA region.


On the show, the MAXPRO200 was unveiled, a new 200 AMP, single button operated cutting and gouging system that can be used in both handheld as mechanized applications. Performance is impressive; a production pierce capacity on mild steel of 32 mm and a severance capacity of 75 mm – unmet results in the conventional plasma arena. The MAXPRO200 combines maximized productivity with reliable process efficiency, the lowest operating cost possible and dramatically increased consumable life.


The capabilities of our new fully-integrated HFL030 HyIntensity Fiber Laser system were impressive. The new 3.0 kW power source is considered to be a great addition to the HyIntensity Fiber Laser family, the only turn-key solution in the market place, designed specifically for metal cutting applications, including marking and fine-feature cutting.


Hypertherm integrated its bevel expertise into the ProNest® 2012 version of CAM Solutions, making bevel capabilities available to HPRXD users. Like True Hole™ and Rapid Part™, Bevel Technology is part of Hypertherm’s integrated cutting solutions to help focus on business goals by making it easy to take care of metal-cutting needs. Expect excellent cut and hole quality, superior performance and optimized consumable life, while automating processes and minimizing operator training needs.
