Maximize Parts and Profit Per Plate

Hypertherm has introduced PlateSaver, a SureCut technology that automatically maximizes the number of parts on a plate for more profit per plate.

PlateSaver is available through Hypertherm's ProNest and other authorized software for fabricators cutting mild steel on a CNC table using X-Definition plasma. It combines the arc stability of X-Definition plasma with specialized software parameters to increase material utilization. Those parameters cause PlateSaver to use shorter leads when starting and finishing a cut for less wasted space between parts. In addition to shorter lead-ins and lead-outs, PlateSaver takes molten metal into account by using moving pierces that cause molten splatter to fall within a predictable "splash zone."

"We are excited to introduce this SureCut technology as it will allow customers to increase their profits through the reduction of waste," said Tom Stillwell, a Hypertherm Product Manager. "By fitting more parts on a plate, customers will spend less time and money purchasing, moving and storing metal, and also less time tracking and conducting inventory on partially used plate."

SureCut technology maximizes cutting performance by automatically embedding thousands of cutting parameters into authorized hardware and software products. It includes True Hole for bolt ready holes, True Bevel to simplify the process of cutting beveled edges and Rapid Part to reduce cut-to-cut cycle time.
