*Note:Take care in comparison: competitors often show maximum cutting speeds rather than speeds that deliver the best cuts, as shown above. Cut speeds listed above deliver best cut quality, but cut speeds can be up to 50% faster.

**ISO 9013 is a standard that defines cut quality of thermally cut parts. The lower range (range 1 is the lowest), the smaller the angle on the cut face. Cut angle in range 4 is better than in 5.

Superior Cut Quality & Consistency

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

HPR130 Cut Quality

  • Patented technologies such as HyDefinition and LongLife®, deliver more consistent cut quality over a longer period of time than other systems available on the market.
  • True Hole™ technology, for HyPerformance Plasma auto gas systems, produces hole quality that is significantly better than what has been previously achievable using plasma.*
  • HyPerformance Plasma cuts mild steel and stainless steel from thick to thin with a mirror-like finish.
  • Hypertherm consumables are manufactured with the highest quality standards to ensure consistent performance.

Unmatched Reliability

Hypertherm combines four decades of experience and world-class design, manufacturing and testing processes to build in reliability that you can trust.

HPR130 Cut Time

Reliable By Design
  • During development, Hypertherm systems endure rigorous reliability testing procedures that are equivalent to years of use in extreme operating environments.
  • Systems are subject to a wide range of temperatures, humidity levels, vibration, electrical noise, and incoming voltage to ensure that the final products are extremely robust.

Robust Manufacturing & Test Processes
  • Best-in-class lean manufacturing processes reduce the opportunity for error ensuring every Hypertherm system meets our high quality standards.
  • All Hypertherm systems go through extensive automated testing before they are shipped.
  • Hypertherm's manufacturing and test teams are dedicated to delivering the highest quality plasma products on the market.

Reliable Operation
  • Self-diagnostics run automatically at startup and continually while cutting to ensure that the system operates at peak performance

Maximized Productivity

HyPerformance Plasma combines fast cutting speeds, rapid process cycling, quick changeovers and high up time to maximize productivity.

HPR130 Productivity

  • HyPerformance Plasma delivers HyDefinition precision at unprecedented cutting speeds to deliver more parts per hour.
  • Rapid cut-to-cut and cut-to-mark cycle times result in less downtime between cuts.
  • Quick-disconnect torch, auto gas console option and intuitive user interface all reduce set-up time.
  • Long consumable life and high system reliability maximize productive "arc-on" time

Minimized Operating Costs

HyPerformance Plasma lowers your cost per part and improves profitability.

More Parts Per Hour
  • HyPerformance Plasma systems provide faster cut speeds to produce more parts per hour.
  • Hypertherm's PowerPierce® technology makes it possible to cut thicker than ever before and replace slower-cutting oxy fuel technology.
  • HyPerformance Plasma's superior quality and consistency maximize the number of parts produced per hour by minimizing time-consuming secondary operations

Longer consumable life
  • Patented LongLife and PowerPierce technologies significantly increase consumable life and reduce your cost per part.
  • Hypertherm consumables are manufactured with the highest quality standards to ensure consistently longer life.

Do More With Less Power
  • Patented consumable designs enable industry-leading cutting speeds and robust production piercing using lower amperage levels.
  • HyPerformance Plasma enables extremely high cutting speeds per amp with less cutting current than other plasma solutions on the market.
  • Hypertherm’s power supplies are designed to be extremely efficient in their use of electricity, enabling lower electrical expense and a reduced impact on the environment.

HPR130 Power Use

*True Hole technology requires a HyPerformance Plasma HPRXD auto gas system with True Hole enabled CNC, THC and nesting software.

Technology That Delivers

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

HyDefiniton Technology
  • Vented nozzle technology aligns and focuses the plasma arc.
  • HyDefinition technology enables powerful precision cutting for superior quality and consistency.
HRP130 Dominos
LongLife Technology
  • Ramps electrical current and gas pressure up and down in a tightly controlled manner.
  • To reduce 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.
HPR400 powerpierce technology hpr400
PowerPierce Technology
  • Liquid cooled shield technology repels molten metal during piercing.
  • PowerPierce technology enables robust production pierce capability up to 50 mm (2") mild steel.
True Hole Technology
  • Hypertherm's patent pending True Hole** cutting technology for mild steel is a specific combination of cutting parameters that is optimized for each material thickness and hole size.
  • True Hole technology virtually eliminates taper and dings on holes down to a 1:1 diameter to thickness ratio.
  • True Hole technology produces up to a 50% improvement in mild steel hole cylindricality when compared to other plasma systems available on the market.
