Hypertherm Launch New Class of Plasma System



Hypertherm have recently launched their new plasma system, the XPR300, which is the first in a new class of mechanised plasma systems and represents Hypertherm’s most significant advance in mechanised plasma cutting technology to date.

Featuring Hypertherm's new X-Definition technology, the XPR300 brings more efficiency and significant advantages to the cutting process to not only mild steel cutting, but also to stainless steel and aluminium. The end result is faster cuts, advanced cut quality, increased power efficiencies, longer consumable life, squarer cut edges, markedly less angularity and an excellent surface finish on non-ferrous metals like aluminum and stainless steel. 

Phil Parker, Product Marketing Manager for Hypertherm XPR Plasma, said: “The arrival of X-Definition plasma and our new XPR300 is a huge step forward in the capabilities of plasma technology...The combination of faster cut speeds, unparalleled cut quality, intuitive features and automatic system monitoring make it our most advanced and productive plasma yet."

The new XPR300 X-Definition technology is now available on the Morgan Rushworth CNC plasma cutting machines and will replace the outgoing HPR260 XD, which will be phased out by July 2017.
