image1Superior cut quality and consistency

Hyperformance Plasma cuts fine-feature parts with superior quality and consistency – eliminating cost of secondary operations.

NewHDi thin stainless steel technology delivers extremely sharp top edge quality, shiny surface finish, and superior angularity with reduced angle variation.HyDefinition technology aligns and focuses the plasma arc for more powerful precision cutting up to 80 mm (3.2″).Patented system technologies deliver more consistent cut quality over a longer period of time than other systems available on the market.Hypertherm consumables are manufactured with the highest quality standards and latest patented technology to ensure consistent performance.HyPerformance Plasma cuts stainless steel from thin to thick with a mirror-like finish.

Minimized operating cost

HyPerformance Plasma lowers operating cost and improves profitability

LongLife technology significantly increases consumable life and enables consistent HyDefinition cut quality over the longest period of time.Hypertherm consumables are manufactured with the highest quality standards and latest patented technology to ensure consistently longer life.The combination of LongLife technology and high cut speeds enables Hypertherm systems to produce more cut parts per set of consumables, reducing your cost per part.

Maximized productivity

HyPerformance Plasma combines fast cutting speeds, rapid process cycling, quick changeovers and high reliability to maximize productivity.
HyPerformance HPR400XD delivers HyDefinition precision at unprecedented cutting speeds to deliver more parts per hour.

Rapid cut-to-cut cycle time results in less downtime between cuts.Quick-disconnect torch and intuitive user interface reduce set-up time.Long consumable life and high system reliability maximize productive “arc-on” time.HyPerformance HPR400XD cuts, bevels, and marks a variety of metals, making it the one system that consistently does it all.

Unmatched reliability

Extensive testing, backed by more than four decades of experience, guarantees the Hypertherm quality you can count on.During development, the HyPerformance systems endure rigorous reliability testing procedures that are equivalent to over 10 years of use in extreme operating environments.Hypertherm’s engineers leveraged decades of experience to produce a robust and simple system with 50% fewer parts than other systems on the market. Studies have shown that fewer parts directly results in greater reliability.Self-diagnostics run automatically at startup and continually while cutting to ensure that the system operates at peak performance.


Technology that delivers

Hypertherm technology delivers more consistent cut quality for longer periods of time at 
half the operating cost.

HyDefinition technology Vented nozzle technology aligns and focuses the plasma arc.HyDefinition technology enables powerful precision cutting for superior quality and consistency on mild steel.New HDi technology now delivers HyDefinition quality to thin stainless steel cutting.

LongLife technology Ramps electrical current and gas pressure up and down in a tightly controlled manner.By reducing electrode and nozzle erosion, LongLife technology delivers consistent HyDefinition cut quality over the longest period of time for a significant reduction in operating cost and downtime.

Patented PowerPierce technology Liquid cooled shield technology repels molten metal during piercing.Patented PowerPierce liquid cooled shield repels molten metal during piercing for maximum pierce capability of up to 50 mm (2″) mild steel and 100 mm (4″) stainless steel.Patented consumable designs deliver speed and thickness capabilities expected of higher amp systems.

Patented True Hole technology * Hypertherm’s True Hole cutting technology for mild steel is a specific combination of cutting parameters that is optimized for each material thickness and hole size automatically.True Hole technology virtually eliminates taper and minimizes and biases the ding to the outside of the hole.True Hole technology produces up to a 50% improvement in mild steel hole cylindricity when compared to other plasma systems available on the market.Learn more about patented True Hole™ technology.
