Hypertherm, Hanover, N.H., has introduced PlateSaver, a new SureCut technology that automatically maximizes the number of parts on a plate for more profit per plate.
PlateSaver is available through Hypertherm’s ProNest and other authorized software for fabricators cutting mild steel on a CNC table using X-Definition plasma. It combines the arc stability of X-Definition plasma with specialized software parameters to dramatically increase material utilization. Those parameters cause PlateSaver to use shorter leads when starting and finishing a cut for less wasted space between parts. In addition to shorter lead-ins and lead-outs, PlateSaver takes molten metal into account by using moving pierces that cause molten splatter to fall within a predictable “splash zone.”
SureCut technology maximizes cutting performance by automatically embedding thousands of cutting parameters into authorized hardware and software products. It includes True Hole for bolt-ready holes, True Bevel to simplify the process of cutting beveled edges, and Rapid Part to markedly reduce cut-to-cut cycle time.
