Applications

It doesn’t matter what cut process, application, or machine brand you’re using, Hypertherm software has the solution. Our products offer:

  • Cutting expertise across plasma, laser, oxyfuel, waterjet, and combination punch
  • Custom setup for virtually any cutting machine brand
  • Additional support for secondary machine applications like reposition, bevel, rotary pipe, drill, and plate
  • Ability to consolidate all of your cutting needs to a single software solution

 

  • Plasma - conventional air / oxygen

    Conventional air / oxygen plasma cutting (ex. Powermax®, HySpeed®) is widely used as an economical, high-speed cutting process for applications where the slight bevel edge generated by the process is acceptable. Hypertherm software fully supports this process for use with virtually all machine brands. The software also contains many standard features and optional modules that allow users of conventional plasma to get the most from their machine.

  • Plasma - high definition / high current density

    High definition / high current density plasma cutting (ex. HyPerformance®) is a high-speed process that improves cut quality over conventional plasma. Edge straightness and smoothness are improved with less dross accumulation. Bolt-hole ready holes may also be achieved using True Hole® technology and overall productivity rates enhanced using Rapid Part® technology. Hypertherm software fully supports this process for use on virtually all machine brands. The software also contains many standard features and optional modules that allow users of high definition plasma to get the most from their machine.

  • Oxyfuel

    Oxyfuel, the oldest of the CNC cutting processes, is still very common due to its ability to cut thick plate with a relatively low initial investment. Speeds are slower, but multiple torches help to make up time and achieve good productivity. Hypertherm software fully supports this process for use on virtually all machine brands. The software also contains many standard features and optional modules that allow users of oxyfuel to get the most from their machine.

  • Laser

    Laser applications, whether it’s CO2 or fiber (ex. HyIntensity™) are chosen for their combination of high cutting speeds, process accuracy, and minimal secondary part clean-up. The initial investment is relatively high, and therefore process reliability and optimization are key factors to achieving the desired return. Hypertherm software fully supports these laser processes for use on virtually all machine brands. The software also contains many standard features and optional modules that allow users of laser to get the most from their machine.

  • Waterjet

    Waterjet cutting offers users a great deal of process flexibility allowing any material to be cut over a range of thicknesses without any heat affected zone. Hypertherm software fully supports this process for use on virtually all machine brands. The software also contains many standard features and optional modules that allow users of waterjet to get the most from their machine.

  • Reposition (Combination Punch)

    Reposition machines support combination punch (punch-plasma or punch-laser) in specific applications where bringing these processes together in a single machine offers superior productivity and part quality. Hypertherm software supports many of the most challenging combination punch machine brands. The software also contains many standard features and optional modules that allow users of combination punch to get the most from their machine.

  • Contour Bevel

    Contour bevel cutting makes it possible to add an angular side profile to a part cut on a CNC cutting machine. Plasma and oxyfuel processes are typically used for beveling and Hypertherm software fully supports both of these processes for use with virtually all machine brands. The software offers an optional module, Contour Bevel Interface, that allows users to get the most from their bevel cutting machine, and in addition supports Hypertherm True Bevel® technology.

  • Rotary Pipe / Tube

    Rotary pipe / tube cutting machines offer the ability to mount pipe and tube sections and cut profiles from the pipe or tube wall. Using exterior dimensions, wall thickness, rotational motion and other required factors, accurate profiles may be cut providing for ease of "fit-up" prior to welding. Advanced programming even makes it possible to include bevel angles to assist with weld-preparation. Hypertherm software fully supports this process for use with virtually all machine brands. The software offers an optional module, Rotary Pipe / Tube Interface, that allows users to get the most from their machine.

  • Drill Machine

    For users operating plasma or oxyfuel cutting machines that incorporate drilling, tapping and other spindle operations, Hypertherm software fully supports this process for use with virtually all machine brands. The software offers an optional module, Drill Machine Interface, that allows users to get the most from their machine.

  • Plate Machine

    For users of plate combination machines (ex. Peddinghaus FPB, FDB, and FPDB lines) Hypertherm software supports all available functionality such as part punching, drilling (including tapping and countersinking), marking, cutting, and more. The software offers an optional module, Plate Machine Interface, that allows users to get the most from their machine.
