Hypertherm releases plate cutting feature

Hypertherm Inc. introduced PlateSaver, a new SureCut technology that automatically maximizes the number of parts on a plate. It is available through 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 dramatically increase material utilization. Those parameters cause PlateSaver to use shorter leads when starting and finishing a cut for less wasted space between parts. SureCut technology maximizes cutting performance by automatically embedding thousands of cutting parameters into authorized hardware and software products.
