HyPrecision is a new line of waterjet from Hypertherm that made its debut at FABTECH 2013 in Chicago, IL.
The line ranges from 15 to 150 hp and comes with the company’s Advanced Intensifier technolgoy to extend maintenance intervals, reduce maintenance time and maximize performance, according to Hypertherm.
The system is easy to service as the hydraulic rod seals and plunger bearings are accessed from the outside of the hydraulic end cap. The hydraulic centre section has a piston design, which minimizes seal wear and improves component life, says the company.
The check valve uses a screwless, low pressure poppet design that enables quick evaluation of key contact surfaces. As well, a threaded-rod design simpliflies high pressure end removal for quick seal maintenance. And a long diameter ceramic plunger produces more water per stroke with reduced friction for optimized seal life, claims the company.
