Hypertherm

Hypertherm, a manufacturer of plasma, laser and waterjet cutting systems, will present its new class of plasma system X-Definition. The machine offers high cut quality and performance on all metals thanks to newly incorporated technologies such as vented water injection, plasma dampening, and vent-to-shield. The end result is squarer cut edges, markedly less angularity, and an excellent surface finish on non-ferrous metals such as aluminum and stainless steel. 

Additionally, special guest and metal artist Marcel Boonen will perform impressive cutting demonstrations with the new generation of Hypertherm’s Powermax line of light industrial plasma cutter, the Powermax45 XP. 

The company will also feature its HyPrecision Waterjet cutting products, CAM nesting software line, automation products, torch and consumable technologies, and its Centricut and AccuStream brands.
