Plasma Systems - HySpeed HT2000

HySpeed HT2000 Delivers fastest cut speeds and lowest operating costs available for 200-amp oxygen plasma.

Production cutting capacity (piercing) - mild steel 25 mm (1")

Maximum pierce capacity - mild steel 38 mm (1 1/2")

Maximum cutting capacity (edge start) - mild steel 50 mm (2")

The dual gas HySpeed HT2000 and HYSpeed HT2000LHF operate with conventional consumables for optimal results on the broadest spectrum of material types and thicknesses. The HySpeed HT2000 and HySpeed HT2000LHF oxygen plasma cutting systems now utilize Hypertherm's patented Coaxial-assist™ jet technology to boost cutting speeds as much as 50% over conventional designs.

*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.

Built For Long Consumable Life & Low Operating Costs
  • The LongLife process utilizes microprocessor control to ramp up the gases and current when initializing the cutting process and ramp them down when stopping.
  • LongLife's precise control of cutting parameters extends electrode life dramatically. Depending on the cut duration and the method of cutting, a single electrode may deliver over 1200 starts before needing replacement.

Even longer parts life with SilverPlus™
  • Now HySpeed HT2000 and HySpeed HT2000LHF systems feature patented SilverPlus electrode technology. This dramatic advance involves fusing a silver front-end onto the copper electrode base, so that silver surrounds the hafnium emitter. In many applications, this feature lets SilverPlus effectively double electrode life compared with standard all-copper electrodes.

HT2000 LongLife

System Features
  • Cuts as fast as competitive 300-amp plasma systems with only 200 amps of cutting power.
  • Current output from 50 to 200 amps for materials that range in thickness from 18 gauge (1.2 mm) to 2 inch (50 mm).
  • Production piercing of mild steel up to 1-inch (25 mm) thick, and maximum piercing up to 1.5-inch (38 mm).
  • Bevel capability to 3/4 inch (20 mm) at 45.
  • 100% Duty cycle at an output of 30 kW.
  • Built-in microprocessor for precise control of current output, gas flow and other factors critical to cut quality, consumable parts life, and minimizing operating costs.
  • Liquid-cooled torch contributes to long consumable parts life and low operating costs.
  • Remote High Frequency (RHF) in the HySpeed HT2000 delivers real flexibility allowing the power supply to be up to 200 feet (60 m) from the torch.
  • Superior warranty coverage - as with all Hypertherm systems - backs the HySpeed HT2000's power supply for two years and its torch for one year.
