Hypertherm Introduces New 130 Amp Bevel Consumables For the HyPerformance Product Line

HANOVER, N.H.—January 7, 2008— Today Hypertherm® announced the addition of new 130 amp bevel consumables to its HyPerformance® (HPR™) Plasma family of products. This announcement means people can now perform lower power bevel cutting with the HPR130 and the HPR260.

The addition of the new consumables will extend the existing bevel capabilities currently available by enabling high quality, full bevel cutting capabilities up to 45 degrees on thin plate. The consumables, which will enable the cutting of both mild as well as stainless steel, are part of Hypertherm’s ongoing commitment to improve cut quality, consistency, and overall performance while lowering the operating cost of its systems.
