Hypertherm’s mission is to provide customers with the best cutting equipment and service in the industry. It’s a mission we’ve been committed to since 1968 when Hypertherm President Dick Couch and colleague Bob Dean radially injected water into a nozzle. This radial injection technique created a narrower plasma arc, capable of cutting metal with a speed and accuracy never before seen. More than 40 years later, Mr. Couch’s founding principles of customer focused innovation remain strong. We continuously devote more resources to plasma cutting engineering than any other company in the world. A commitment that has led to many metal cutting innovations. Innovations like oxygen injected cutting, HyDefinition® plasma cutting, Coaxial-assistTM jet, and LongLife® technologies, just to name a few. It’s why Hypertherm systems consistently outperform the competition in cut quality, productivity, and operating costs. And why our customers can cut with confidence.
Hypertherm's commitment to designing and manufacturing the best plasma cutters on the market dates back 40 years.
