    New Things Coming from Hypertherm

    Since we will have some great new things coming soon from Hypertherm...and the trade show season (IMTS, Fabtech (Vegas) and SEMA (Vegas) is rapidly approaching.....we needed some new speaker podiums for use at the trade shows. I volunteered to build them in my home shop (in between other projects)....and here are the first two.

    I fabricated a frame from 1 x 1 x .083" wall square tube...then cnc plasma cut the top (10 gauge steel) and front and side panels. The new globe logo on the front has a lot of fine detail....so after cutting the two front panels I carried them over to our Laser cutting facility (in W. Lebanon, NH) and cut the logos. first unit on the left is complete, second unit is ready to be disassembled and painted (wish I had powder coating capability!).

    As I have said before...the CNC Plasma in my home shop is the best tool I ever bought. And the plasma cutting on these was done with new technology that we will use these podiums to talk about! Jim Colt Hypertherm

    Those would look neat with frosted plexiglass and colored light behind the logos.

    I was thinking of that.......but under orders from Marketing to have exact colors for the logo and the gray color! They will be inspecting these for infractions...

    Re: New Things Coming from Hypertherm

    So is this new tech something to do with upgrading the consumables on your machines at home? Or more importantly my machines at my home..

    I agree with the home CNC plasma stuff. Just makes things way easier then grinding things to fit all the time..

    Amazing detail, if only my plasma could cut like that! The words and globe no problem but the cables on the bridge, the windows, etc only in my dreams.

    So what is the difference in kerf width with mechanized cutting with the new 45xp and say a 65 or 85 with the fine cut consumables

    If running at the same amperage, speed, height with Finecut consumables the kerf width will be identical with the Powermax45 XP, the 65, 85 and 105 systems. The original Powermax45 did not use the Finecuts...and would have a kerf that was approximately .006" to .010" wider when using the 45 amp shielded consumables.

    I suspect with the new 45 XP you could experiment with lower amperage cutting (it goes as low as 10 amps.....while the others bottom out at 20 to 25 amps) at lower cut speeds for a narrow kerf and better accuracy. Jim Colt Hypertherm
