Hypertherm Introduces PowermaxEDGE For "Integration Made Easy"
Hanover, NH, USA - Hypertherm, Inc. has simplified mechanized plasma cutting system integration with the introduction of Hypertherm PowermaxEDGE. Hypertherm describes the product as "integration made easy."
The "bundled" solution integrates a patented Powermax® G3 Series(TM) plasma system with either a standalone Sensor(TM) PHC (Plasma Height Control) or the EDGE® Ti CNC with integrated torch height control. According to Bruce Altobelli, Business Team Leader for Hypertherm's Manual Systems product line, the PowermaxEDGE "is a complete entry-level mechanized air plasma package engineered to deliver quick installation, ease-of-use and maximum performance - all at price point significantly lower than prior offerings." A single point of contact for ordering and for service further supports the "integration made easy" promise.
"We take our position as the world leader in plasma cutting seriously," said Evan Smith, Hypertherm Vice President and General Manager. "And being the leader means introducing technology - like the new PowermaxEDGE and the recently announced Powermax30(TM) - to help drive plasma adoption and grow our customers' businesses. New products like these are proof of our commitment to providing unmatched breadth and depth of technology advantage in the plasma cutting field, from the ultra-portable inverter to the most advanced automated solutions."
Metal fabricators can configure the PowermaxEDGE for their specific requirements starting with one of three Powermax G3 plasma systems - the Powermax1000, Powermax1250 or Powermax1650 - depending on cutting requirements. Each model features patented Coaxial-assist(TM) technology as well as advanced torch and power supply designs to cut thicker plates, at faster speeds, with better overall cut quality and consumable life. The PowermaxEDGE with a Powermax1650 cuts up to 88 inches per minute (2235 mm per minute) on 1/2-inch thick plate (12 mm).
Sensor PHC is an easy-to-use automatic plasma height control that maximizes cut quality. Designed for easy integration to CNC tables, it features simple operational controls and fault indicators.
Hypertherm's Edge Ti sets the standard for affordable, high-performance motion control. The enhanced user interface is a 15" touch screen monitor based on surface acoustic wave technology for robust industrial environment performance. The Windows-XP-embedded operating system supports powerful shape cutting software including HyperNest CNC for automated nesting. The Edge Ti is a self-contained unit with integrated drives that offer easy integration for either new installations or retrofit tables supporting brushless motors (which can be ordered with the unit) up to 250W power.
The PowermaxEDGE provides easy integration for small- to mid-range table applications, including original equipment manufacturers building light to medium gantry cutting tables, light duty cycle needs such as HVAC or custom fabricators (½" and below), and for retrofit of existing oxy-fuel or plasma tables.
Since 1968, Hypertherm has been the industry leader in plasma arc cutting equipment and service. Now, with its entry into the plate-laser 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.
