Hypertherm's True Bevel is a new edge profiling technology designed to help fabricators and CNC table manufacturers achieve accurate bevel cuts more easily than before.

The technology includes factory tested mild steel cut charts for all Hypertherm HyPerformance HPRXD® plasma systems. These cut charts contain developed parameters to significantly reduce the amount of time and effort required to produce quality bevels using plasma.

“We estimate more than 90 per cent of fabricators need to apply a beveled edge to at least some of their parts,” says Aaron Brandt, who leads Hypertherm’s mechanized team. “We also know most of these fabricators spend a considerable amount of time setting up their systems through trial and error, and even then, the outcome is inconsistent. Hypertherm’s new plasma bevel technology is designed to deliver accurate and consistent bevels without that lengthy set-up time.”

The new technology is similar to Hypertherm’s patent-pending True Hole process in that it makes it easy to consistently optimize bevel performance. The benefit to customers is a significant reduction in trial and error time, helping to deliver higher productivity, more throughput, and less waste. Hypertherm plans to embed the cut charts in its CNC/CAM software and make it available to its partners for inclusion with their proprietary CNC/CAM solutions.
