HANOVER, N.H. - Dec. 4, 2007 - Hypertherm's Centricut brand is building upon the success of its recently introduced line of Innerlogic ProLine2200 consumables by adding a 150 amp consumable set to its list of offerings. The new 150 amp consumables join four other Proline2200 consumable sets-50, 70, 100 and 200 amp versions-introduced in May.
"We are seeing strong demand for the first four sets of Proline2200 consumables," said Dean Lizotte, team leader for Hypertherm's Centricut brand. "Proline owners tell us the Centricut brand consumables are lasting longer and cutting better than any other consumable they've used and have asked us to develop a 150 amp set."
In addition to a longer life and better cut quality, the Centricut brand consumables can lower the operating cost of the Proline2200. The increased performance and lower operating cost is due to two Hypertherm innovations: patented SilverLine® electrodes and patent pending CoolFlow(TM) nozzles.
SilverLine electrode technology involves welding a solid silver front end to a copper electrode base and inserting a hafnium pin into the silver. CoolFlow nozzle technology, on the other hand, offers improved conduction cooling, o-ring cooling and seal reliability. Additionally, flow stagnation and leaks into the plasma chamber are eliminated.
