*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

HyPerformance HPR400 Comparison

  • Patented 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.

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 speeds

HPR400 Speed

  • Rapid cut-to-cut cycle time results in less downtime between cuts.
  • uick-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.
