Hypertherm was set up in 1968 to provide customers with the very best in cutting equipment and service in the industry. The company was established when Dick Couch and partner Bob Dean discovered that by radially injecting water into a plasma cutting nozzle, you could create a narrower arc that was capable of cutting metal faster and more accurately than ever before.
This discovery also eliminated the problems of dross accumulation and a phenomenon called double-arcing.
'More than 40 years and nearly 100 patents later, innovations to improve cut quality, extend service life, enhance productivity and lower operating costs are still the norm at Hypertherm.'
The range of Hypertherm's products that we use includes:
What the Powermax 30 lacks in size, it makes up for in ability. It does the work of systems twice its size and weight and can quickly and efficiently cut 6mm metal with ease. Its small size and light weight make it easy to use and it can adapt to any incoming power, thanks to its auto voltage system. The tapered 75 degree torch provides excelllent arc visibility, control and access to hard to reach applications.
The Powermax 45 is Hypertherm's best selling plasma cutting system. Incredibly versatile and portable, it has a broad set of application capabilities that make it a truly multi-purpose tool. It is proven to cut or gouge faster, easier and more effectively than any other product in its class. Its conical flow increases arc energy density for superior cut quality with little dross accumulation and its small size and light weight provide unrivalled portability.
The Powermax 65 uses Smart Sense technology to automatically adjust gas pressure, providing increased accuracy and versatility. Featuring seven different torch styles, this system helps operators select the right tool for the job. Offering fast cut speeds, a superior cut and gouge quality and a low operating cost, the Powermax 65 handheld plasma cutter is an ideal choice for cost effective and reliable handheld cutting.
