The HySpeed Plasma HSD130 is the newest member of the Hypertherm mechanized family of products. It is an oxygen plasma system that includes Hypertherm’s patented LongLife technology. According to the company, this means the product delivers double the consumable life at half the cost. The product cuts dross-free at 5/8-inch on mild steel. Production pierce capability is 1-inch with maximum cutting at 1 1/2-inches. With faster cut speeds and virtually dross-free cutting, secondary operations are eliminated. This means higher productivity at a lower cost per foot.
