* Note: Take care in comparison: competitors often show maximum cutting speeds rather than speeds that deliver the best cuts, as shown above. Cut speeds listed above deliver best cut quality, but cut speeds can be up to 50% faster.

** 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.
Superior cut quality and consistency
  • HyPerformance Plasma cuts fine-feature parts with superior quality and consistency, virtually eliminating the cost of secondary operations.
  • Patented HyDefinition technology aligns and focuses the plasma arc for more powerful precision cutting up to 80 mm (3.2").
  • Patented system technologies deliver more consistent cut quality over a longer period of time than other systems available on the market.
  • Hypertherm consumables are manufactured with the highest quality standards and latest patented technology to ensure consistent performance.
  • HyPerformance Plasma cuts stainless steel from thin to thick with a mirror-like finish.
Unmatched reliability
  • Extensive testing, backed by more than four decades of experience, guarantees the Hypertherm quality you can count on.
  • During development, the HyPerformance systems endure rigorous reliability testing procedures that are equivalent to over 10 years of use in extreme operating environments.
  • Hypertherm's engineers leveraged decades of experience to produce a robust and simple system with 50% fewer parts than other systems on the market. Studies have shown that fewer parts directly results in greater reliability.
  • Self-diagnostics run automatically at startup and continually while cutting to ensure that the system operates at peak performance.

Maximized productivity
  • HyPerformance Plasma combines fast cutting speeds, rapid process cycling, quick changeovers and high reliability to maximize productivity.
  • HyPerformance HPR400XD delivers HyDefinition precision at unprecedented speeds.
  • Rapid cut-to-cut cycle time results in less downtime between cuts.
  • Quick-disconnect torch and intuitive user interface reduce set-up time.
  • Long consumable life and high system reliability maximize productive “arc-on” time.
  • HyPerformance HPR400XD cuts, bevels, and marks a variety of metals, making it the one system that consistently does it all.
