Hypertherm Introduces New Fiber Laser and More at EuroBLECH2010
Roosendaal, The Netherlands - At the upcoming EuroBLECH2010 exposition, 26-30 October 2010, Hypertherm will feature the latest technology including the company's first fiber laser system and two of the most versatile Powermax systems ever made. These will be demonstrated live on its stand in Hall 13, Stand D54.
Hypertherm's new HyIntensityTM Fiber Laser HFL015 system is unique in that all of the components are engineered and designed to work together as one complete cutting system. Unlike products from other fiber laser manufacturers, Hypertherm's system includes the power source, cutting head, gas supply, operator interface consoles, motion controls, and software. Hypertherm believes this solutions based approach will make it much easier for partners and their customers to use laser cutting for their fine feature cutting requirements. Additionally, the system operates on familiar Hypertherm control platforms, with pre-developed cutting processes, for significantly simplified table integration and operation as well as higher levels of efficiency, when compared to other laser cutting solutions.
In addition, two new Powermax systems will make their EuroBLECH debut. Hypertherm's Powermax65® and Powermax85® come with more torch options, industry-leading technological innovations, and a more rugged torch design for greater durability in difficult cutting environments. Available torch options are an ergonomic 75 degree hand torch, a 15 degree hand torch for gouging and cutting in tight locations, a 38 cm full-length machine torch, and a 15 cm short barreled machine torch for robotic and pipe-cutting applications, enabling operators to use plasma in more applications than ever before. In addition, the torches, which are part of Hypertherm's new DuramaxTM series, are up to five times more rugged and durable than before.
Attendees to this year's show will also have a chance to view cut samples from Hypertherm's new HyPerformance HPR800XD® system. This 800 amp system delivers the industry's widest process range in addition to the thickest stainless steel and aluminum cutting capacity available on the market. It features HyDefinition® cutting performance for mild steel up to 80 mm, and can production pierce 75 mm and sever 160 mm thick stainless steel and aluminum. The thick piercing capability is attributed to PowerPierceTM, the patent-pending technology that minimizes damage to the torch using a liquid cooled shield to repel molten metal during piercing and cutting. In testing, there was no damage to the consumables or lessening of cut quality, even after piercing 75 mm stainless steel over 400 times. The HPR800XD can just as easily cut thin metal-including gauge-without the need to switch torches. Until now, fabricators needing to cut a wide range of metals and thicknesses had to use two or more systems to complete the job.
In addition to these new systems and technologies, the company will feature its complete Powermax manual plasma product line as well as consumable technologies from Hypertherm and its Centricut brand.
Hypertherm's MTC Software brand will also demonstrate its recently released 2010 version of nesting cutting software. On display will be Hypertherm's automation products, including CNC motion and torch height controls. Finally, visitors can learn more about Hypertherm's new True Hole technology and watch impressive True Hole cutting demonstrations.
