Hypertherm Introduces Voyager III CNC Controller

Hanover, NH, USA- Hypertherm, Inc. continues its leadership in PC-based CNC controls for thermal metal cutting machines with the introduction of the Voyager III controller. Voyager III from Hypertherm Automation will replace all earlier versions of Voyager products and offers users increased performance and enhanced flexibility.
The new six-axes Voyager III features a 15-inch touch screen display and 2.4Ghz Intel processor utilizing Hypertherm Automation CNC Software Version 6.0. The screen incorporates patented IntelliTouch Surface Wave technology for drift-free touch accuracy and screen clarity.

"Making people and machines more productive through process automation" is the mission of Hypertherm Automation. They have become the world leader in PC-based CNC controls for thermal cutting machines. Hypertherm also produces CNC controllers under the brand names MicroEDGE, EDGE II and Mariner.

Voyager III comes standard with a unique machine interface that converts SERCOS (Serial Real Time Communication) fiber optic communication to a traditional analog interface for motion commands and input/output (I/O). This SERCOS/Analog technology allows increased system flexibility by offering three different styles of machine interface: a traditional enclosure-mounted analog, a standard SERCOS communication ring and a remote-mounted SERCOS-to-analog conversion card. The SERCOS machine interface was first offered by Hypertherm with the Mariner CNC controller and allows expansion of up to 12 axes of motion and over 1000 I/O signals. SERCOS is available on all Hypertherm CNC hardware.

Since 1968, Hypertherm has been the industry leader in plasma arc cutting equipment and service. Now, with its entry into the laser-plate cutting market, Hypertherm expands its technology leadership commitment. By continually delivering breakthrough advances in metal-cutting productivity and precision - first in plasma, now also in laser-Hypertherm reaffirms and extends its position as the world's leading supplier of advanced high temperature metal cutting technology. Hypertherm serves a wide range of industrial metal cutting needs from its headquarters in Hanover, New Hampshire, with subsidiaries, sales offices and partner representation worldwide.
