HPRXD is a new modified torch developed by Hypertherm in cooperation with HGG Profiling Equipment B.V.
HGG, a supplier of pipe, box, beam and profile cutting equipment. Its unique system design wasn’t compatible with a standard length HPRXD torch assembly, so HGG and Hypertherm joined forces to create a shorter, non-quick disconnect torch assembly capble of proper beveling motion within the HGG 3D cutting chamber.
“In conjunction with HGG, this new, shorter, torch assembly will also open up opportunities for us in the 3D profiling segment that were previously not possible,” said Hidde van Hoeven, business team leader for Hypertherm’s Mechanized Plasma Systems Division. “HGG is recognized as one of the leading companies in this market and we are very pleased that we now have a solution that enables us to once again work commercially together.”
Hypertherm is also working with other channel partners who find the shorter torch preferable for a variety of 3D cutting applications. The torch will be widely available as of the beginning of 2015.
