Hypertherm HPR 130 XD

Superior cut quality and consistency

  • HyPerformance plasma cuts fine-feature parts with superior quality and consistency
  • HyDefinition® technology aligns and focuses the plasma arc for more powerful precision cutting up to 38 mm (1-1/2″).
  • New HDi™ technology delivers HyDefinition cut quality on thin stainless, with extremely sharp top edge quality, shiny surface finish, and superior angularity with reduced angle variation
  • Patented True Hole™ technology (auto gas systems only) produces hole quality that is significantly better than anything previously achievable with plasma

Minimized operating cost

  • LongLife® technology significantly increases consumable life and enables consistent HyDefinition cut quality
  • Faster cut speeds let you produce more parts per hour; higher quality cutting virtually eliminates the cost of secondary operations
  • Patented PowerPierce® technology lets you pierce thicker than ever before and replace slower-cutting oxyfuel technology

Do anything” versatility

  • Cuts, bevels, and marks carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and other metals with HyDefinition precision
  • Modular system design allows easy power supply upgrades to increase system capabilities when requirements change

Industry-leading reliability

  • Robust, simple system architecture with 50% fewer parts than most competitive systems
  • Best-in-class manufacturing and extensive testing ensure that every Hypertherm system meets the highest quality standards

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