Hypertherm Introduces New Fiber Laser and More at 2010 FABTECH Show


HANOVER, N.H. - The 2010 FABTECH Show will feature the latest technology from Hypertherm including the company's first fiber laser system and two of the most versatile Powermax systems ever made. Hypertherm will showcase its products in its main booth (Hall C, #6507) at Atlanta's Georgia World Congress Center.

Hypertherm's new HyIntensity(TM) 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 many 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.

In addition, two new Powermax systems will make their Fabtech debut. Hypertherm's Powermax65® and Powermax85® come with four torch options, industry-leading technological innovations, and a more rugged torch design for greater durability in harsh 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 15 inch full-length machine torch, and a 6 inch 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 Duramax(TM) 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 is notable for delivering the industry's widest process range as well as the thickest stainless steel and aluminum cutting capacity available on the market. It can production pierce 3" (75mm) and sever 6 1/4" (160mm) thick metal, and 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.

Hypertherm designs and manufactures advanced cutting systems for use in a variety of industries such as shipbuilding, manufacturing, and automotive repair. Its product line includes handheld and mechanized plasma and laser systems, consumables, as well as CNC motion and height controls and cutting software. Hypertherm systems are trusted for performance and reliability that results in increased productivity and profitability for tens of thousands of businesses. The New Hampshire based company's reputation for metal cutting innovation dates back more than 40 years, to 1968, with Hypertherm's invention of water injection plasma cutting. The company, consistently named one of the best places to work in America, has more than 1,000 associates along with operations and partner representation worldwide.
