Innovation for plasma bevel cutting: True Bevel technology

As part of Hypertherm's SureCut™ technology, True Bevel™ technology for HPRXD® plasma systems is a new performance application for mild steel. Factory tested and easily implemented, it takes the guesswork out of the plasma bevel-cutting process. With True Bevel, setups for new jobs are quick and results are accurate.

Using Hypertherm mild steel bevel cut parameters customers can quickly achieve accurate bevel parts for new jobs.


  • Setup time and scrap material are greatly reduced for new job setup due to reduced trial and error.
  • Bevel cut sequence recommendation is provided for improved accuracy and consistent quality.
  • Scalable parameter tables with embedded equations allow users to add new angles with ease.

True Bevel technology works with all common bevel head designs and covers V, A, and Top-Y style cuts for mild steel:

Bevel angle and land density coverage

True Bevel technology process parameter tables contain values for V- and A-cut angles ranging from 15° to 45° and Y-Top cuts from 22.5° to 45°. The tables contain values for lands ranging from 20% to 50% of the material thickness for Y-Top cuts. You can add other angles and land dimensions within the specified ranges into the bevel process parameter tables for more flexibility. The tables automatically provide newly calculated output values for angle compensation, kerf, cut height, cut speed, and arc voltage.
