Power Of Hypertherm Plasma Cutting Systems
We chose Hypertherm technology for our Esprit machines as it delivers an unmatched cut quality for longer periods of time at half the operating cost. This is thanks to a range of patented plasma cutter & consumables breakthroughs, including True Hole, HyDefinition, and LongLife, which together form a unique system that enables powerful precision cutting for superior quality and consistency.
True Hole Technology
Bolt hole quality is delivered automatically without the need for secondary operations.
Hypertherm’s Patented True Hole technology for mild steel produces significantly better hole quality than previously possible using plasma and narrows the gap with laser hole quality making the plasma process suitable for many jobs previously cut with a laser. Bolt hole quality with virtually no taper is delivered automatically without operator intervention.
True Hole technology is available on all Esprit machines fitted with Hypertherm XPR and HPR systems.

Rapid Part Technology
Hypertherm’s Rapid Part technology can increase production capability by up to 100% by reducing cut-to-cut cycle time (the time the arc is off), including the time from the last cut or pierce to the next one. Intelligent CAD/CAM & CNC technology ensures torch retraction and initial height sensing are eliminated or minimised based on material and part program context, and gas pre-flow occurs simultaneously.
This advanced Hypertherm technology optimises consumable life without requiring operator adjustment. The torch height control automatically and continuously samples and adjusts arc voltage to correct for consumable wear. This results in the correct torch height for optimal cut quality over the life of the consumables without requiring operator adjustment.
Designed & Tested For Extreme Conditions
Each of the plasma cutting systems created by Hypertherm has undergone a rigorous development & testing process. After Hypertherm’s expert developers have perfected a system, it undergoes demanding testing procedures that are equivalent to many years of use. During this phase, it is subjected to a wide range of temperatures, humidity levels & vibrations.
To quote Hypertherm’s Vice President of Engineering, Aaron Brandt: “We test them until they break. Then we find the problem, fix it, and test them again, always under the most severe operating conditions – conditions far tougher than anything the product is likely to see in the real world.”
