Hypertherm Unveils New EDGE Pro Ti CNC
Press release date: January 16, 2013
HANOVER, NH–Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of advanced cutting systems, today announced the launch of the EDGE® Pro Ti–a new CNC designed with integrated drives, motors and multiple torch height control interface options.
This new CNC is ideally suited for small to medium sized cutting tables and works with all plasma systems including Hypertherm’s Powermax®, HySpeed® HSD130™ and new MAXPRO200®. It includes features such as enhanced cutting process support for plasma, waterjet, and oxyfuel cutting methods, and supports Rapid Part™ technology when combined with a Hypertherm Sensor™ Ti or ArcGlide® torch height control. In addition, automatic torch height adjustments ensure optimal consumable life and part quality without operator intervention.
The system also contains new Hypernet® connectivity enabling the use of True Hole™ technology when combined with an ArcGlide THC and HyPerformance® Plasma HPRXD® system. The Hypernet connectivity facilitates remote troubleshooting using a built in Remote Help™ function and standard wireless networking.
“The EDGE Pro Ti CNC replaces the EDGE Ti CNC in the entry to mid-range market, and does so with substantially more to offer in terms of application range and process capability for plasma, oxyfuel, and waterjet cutting operations,” said Bob Boyes, product manager for Hypertherm’s automation team.
Like all Hypertherm controllers, the EDGE Pro Ti is designed for reliability and ease of use while leveraging all the benefits of Hypertherm’s Phoenix™ Version 9 software. All necessary cut process parameters can be embedded within the CAM software’s customer part program for reduced setup time, the elimination of common process errors, and improved productivity.
