Hypertherm announces new SureCut Technology to maximize cutting performance
Hypertherm, a manufacturer of plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting systems, is transitioning its Integrated Cutting Solutions (ICS) brand to SureCut™ Technology. Like ICS before, SureCut is designed to maximize cutting performance by automatically applying optimized cutting process parameters to simplify cutting and reduce operator intervention. SureCut is delivered through a combination of Hypertherm products such as automated systems, CNCs and CAM software.
Hypertherm estimates it spent more than a year developing a comprehensive set of cutting parameters to cover a wide range of applications. Material type, thickness, cut type, amperage level, gas selection and more all impact system settings.
“Though an experienced operator is capable of choosing the right settings, the process can take quite a bit of trial and error,” explains Hypertherm’s SureCut marketing director Abhi Sharma. “SureCut saves time by eliminating this trial and error. It automatically boosts productivity with minimal operator intervention.”
Some of SureCut Technology benefits include True Hole® for bolt ready holes, True Bevel™ to simplify the process of cutting beveled edges, Rapid Part® to markedly reduce cut-to-cut cycle time and Remote Help™ for real time troubleshooting.
