Hypertherm will once again reinforce its commitment to the Indian market at IMTEX Forming 2016. In light of the “Make in India” initiative, manufacturing has grown to become one of the main drivers of the Indian economy, and manufacturers are increasingly looking for solutions to boost productivity and ensure sustainability. Hypertherm will display an array of industrial cutting solutions that are designed to help customers cut more efficiently, effectively, and confidently. Plasma cutting has gained popularity over the years due to the various productivity gains conferred. At IMTEX Forming, manufacturers will also have the opportunity to witness the plasma advantage through live manual and mechanised cutting demonstrations at Hypertherm’s booth. Powermax30 AIRThe main highlight of Hypertherm’s showcase is the recently launched Powermax30 AIR, the newest addition to Hypertherm’s Powermax family of air plasma cutting systems. Powermax30 AIR is the world’s best in class portable air plasma system that features an internal compressor and is able to operate on both 120- and 240-volt lines, making it a highly versatile system for on-the-go cutting. Weighing just 13.5 kg, the Powermax30 AIR provides 30 amps of output and has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any system in its class. Benefits of this system include high portability with the addition of a patent-pending internal air compressor that eliminates the need for an external compressor unit; greater versatility and convenience with a ‘Plug-and-Use’ model that allows the system to be used anywhere with just an electrical power point, even in remote and non-industrial environments; and cost reduction with the elimination of additional costs associated with the use of an external compressor. Hypertherm designs and manufactures advanced cutting products for use in a variety of industries such as shipbuilding, manufacturing, and automotive repair. Its product line includes plasma, laser and waterjet cutting systems, in addition to CNC motion and height controls, CAM nesting software, and consumables.
