PlateSaver maximizes parts per plate

Share This Post

Hypertherm has introduced PlateSaver, a new SureCut technology that maximizes the number of parts on a plate for more profit per plate.  

PlateSaver is available through Hypertherm’s 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 increase material utilization. Those parameters mean PlateSaver uses shorter leads when starting and finishing a cut, reducing wasted space between parts. In addition to shorter lead-ins and lead-outs, PlateSaver takes molten metal into account by using moving pierces that cause molten splatter to fall within a predictable “splash zone.” 

“We are excited to introduce this new SureCut technology as it will allow customers to increase their profits through the reduction of waste,” said Tom Stillwell, a Hypertherm product manager. “By fitting more parts on a plate, customers will spend less time and money purchasing, moving, and storing metal, and also less time tracking and conducting inventory on partially used plate.”
