Hypertherm's New FineCut(TM) Torch Consumables Optimize Thin-Plate Metal Cutting
Hanover, NH, USA - Hypertherm, Inc. has introduced FineCut consumables for users of the Powermax line of plasma cutting torches and systems. FineCut consumables deliver significant improvements in cut quality on thin-plate metals by providing a narrower kerf width, virtually no heat-affected zone and a reduction in dross delivering superior metal finish and increased productivity.
With Hypertherm FineCut consumables, hand- and machine-torch operators cutting thin-plate, mild and stainless steel will obtain the narrowest possible kerf and the smallest heat affected zone. FineCut also dramatically reduces rework time and in some cases eliminates secondary operations such as dross removal.
"I'm elated with the new nozzles," said Cole Wagley of Prairie Outfitters - a Texas-based metal artist and Hypertherm customer. "The difference is as clear as night vs. day. The new nozzles provide a cleaner, smoother cut which makes my life much easier."
FineCut consumables are designed to be used on the Powermax380, 600, 1000, 1250 and 1650, as well as on comparable legacy systems. They are available immediately in a FineCut starter kit that includes five nozzles, two swirl rings, five electrodes, a deflector cap, five o-rings and a tube of silicone lubricant.
