Plasma Cutting, Waterjet Products Introduced
Hypertherm, a manufacturer of industrial cutting systems and software, is introducing two new systems at FABTECH this month, including plasma and waterjet technology. The company’s X-Definition class plasma combines engineering advances and refined, high-definition plasma processes to deliver high plasma-cut quality on mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Hypertherm’s HyPrecision waterjet pump includes digital technology designed to provide warning of upcoming maintenance needs.
For trimming composite parts, this shop describes where it uses machining centers and where it uses waterjet.
In titanium, significant savings and process efficiency can result from the simple fact that abrasive waterjet cutting leaves the remaining stock intact.
