 Press Releases

  • HANOVER, N.H.—Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting systems, is gearing up for FABTECH Canada. Highlights include live demonstrations of the company’s Robotmaster CAD/CAM robotic software, a hands-on comparative cutting station, new waterjet abrasive management products, and consumable offerings for non-Hypertherm plasma and waterjet cutting systems.

    Hypertherm will demonstrate Robotmaster software on a working robot. Robotmaster software is unique because it uses an offline CAD/CAM program rather than a teaching method, to program robots. Once programmed, the robots are capable of performing industrial applications such as trimming, 3D machining, de-burring, polishing, welding, dispensing, grinding, painting, and more.

    A comparative cutting station will provide attendees with an opportunity to compare and contrast parts cut with different technologies. Air plasma, oxygen plasma, high-definition plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting processes are all represented.

    In addition, Hypertherm will feature consumable offerings for non-Hypertherm plasma and waterjet cutting systems. These consumables, sold under the Centricut and AccuStream brand names, offer performance that is just as good, if not better, than OEM offerings.

    This year’s show takes place at the Toronto Congress Centre from March 22 through the 24. Hypertherm is exhibiting in booth 1725. Additionally, Hypertherm partners are conducting live demonstrations of plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting from several booth locations throughout the show.

  • Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting systems, is manufacturing a new waterjet abrasive management system designed to significantly reduce waterjet operating costs by delivering marked labor and consumable savings for companies operating waterjet machines.

    The system is comprised of two new products—the company’s PowerDredge abrasive removal unit and its EcoSift abrasive recycling unit. The PowerDredge increases waterjet productivity and profitability by automating costly abrasive clean-outs. This allows companies to reduce both labor costs and system downtime. The EcoSift helps companies recycle so called “spent” abrasive. Testing and microscopic analysis shows up to 60 percent of abrasive sitting at the bottom of a waterjet table actually meets the specifications for brand new abrasive and can be reused without impacting cut quality. As up to 60 percent of waterjet operating costs are attributed to the purchase of new abrasive, this can lead to a significant cost savings for companies. 

  • Robotmaster CAD/CAM software for robots
    Hypertherm’s Robotmaster software makes it possible to program almost any type of robot offline using familiar CAD/CAM software. The company is planning live demonstrations at FABTECH Canada so attendees can see an actual robot in action....

  • Robotmaster off-line programming software from Hypertherm provides quick and easy tools for industrial robotics and manufacturing by replacing time-intensive "teaching" with offline programming. This allows robot programmers to drastically reduce programming time and effort by adopting Robotmaster while maximizing a rapid return on their investment.

    Robotmaster software is ideally suited to program robots for such tasks as trimming, cutting, welding, de-burring, polishing, dispensing, grinding, spraying, painting and 3D machining, while supporting most industrial robot brands. The newest version of Hypertherm's Robotmaster software includes a new suite of specialized tools that make it easy to optimize robotic welding and cutting—whether plasma, laser, or waterjet. Additionally, Robotmaster software includes one-click automatic programming for error-free robotic programs for both simple and very complex cuts and welds.

    Hypertherm Robotic Software Team Leader Chahe Bakmazjian says a significant rise in robotic cutting and welding in recent years is prompting greater adoption of robotic technology. “A sharp increase in demand for small-batch and high-mix applications is causing more companies to turn to robots,” explains Bakmazjian. “Robots are ideal for these sorts of jobs because they have the ability to adapt to frequent changes; however, simple programming is key since the traditional method of teaching a robot is very time consuming.”
