HyPerformance HPR400XD

The HyPerformance® HPR400XD plasma system has been designed and built for maximum performance and productivity in x-y, bevel and robotic cutting operations. The versatile 400-amp rated system combines fast cutting speeds, rapid process cycling, quick changeovers and high reliability, and delivers the ultimate in HyPerformance mild steel cutting, plus aluminum capability and unmatched stainless steel cut quality.

System information


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 80 mm (3.2")
  • New HDi™ technology delivers HyDefinition cut quality on thin stainless steel, 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.
** Maximum pierce requires usee of an autogas console and controlled motion process. See technical documentation for details.
