Hypertherm has released its MicroEDGE Pro CNC controller with the latest Phoenix Version 9 software. Building on the combined strengths and successful history of the MicroEDGE CNC and EDGE Pro CNC, this model delivers customisable performance for a broad range of cutting applications to maximise productivity and profitability.
In addition to Hypertherm's expertise in plasma cutting including True Hole technology, recent advances in Phoenix Software further expand the functionality of Hypertherm CNCs for multiple plasma bevel designs, waterjet, and rectangular tube/round pipe cutting. Also new for MicroEDGE Pro is Hypertherm's Hypernet communication, which quickly allows connectivity between the CNC, ArcGlide torch height control, and HyPerformance plasma or HyIntensity fibre laser through use of an Ethernet cable improving cut process setup. All necessary cut process parameters can be embedded in the customer part program in the CAM software to reduce setup time while eliminating common process errors and improving productivity.
Hypertherm designs and manufactures advanced metal cutting systems for use in a variety of industries such as shipbuilding, manufacturing, and automotive repair. Its product line includes handheld and mechanised plasma and laser systems, consumables, as well as CNC motion and height controls and cutting software.
