HVAC and mechanical contractors use Hypertherm systems to make easy work of a wide range of cutting jobs. Quicker and easier than saws, snips, or cut-off wheels, plasma is adept at cutting and gouging thin roofing panels, ductwork, rebar, and thick steel supports. Powermax® air plasma systems equipped with a handheld torch are perfect for cutting metal on-site. Their small size and light weight are especially convenient when needing to cut up high or in tight spaces.
Mechanized plasma and laser systems are also popular in this industry. The systems can automate the manufacture of ductwork by automatically feeding roll stock onto the cutting table and labeling finished parts. Hypertherm waterjet systems are ideal for cutting composite materials such as insulation and foam sandwiched between metal.
When it comes to HVAC design, Hypertherm’s Design2Fab® software makes it easy to create specialty fittings associated with HVAC ductwork, kitchen, mechanical, industrial, roofing, and more. Sheet metal layout patterns can be created for various parts including ducts, fittings, supports, brackets, gussets, flanges, and more.
Typical uses include:
- Fabrication of duct work, supports, brackets, gussets, and flanges
- Ductwork changes and additions
- Piping installation, alteration and removal
- Plant and equipment demolition
- Sprinkler system installation, alteration, and removal
