Hypertherm’s Rapid Part technology delivers significant productivity increases, automatically without operator intervention. Rapid Part technology is available via Hypertherm’s Integrated Plasma Cutting Solutions and uses motion optimization techniques programmed into the part program and automatically executed by the computer numerical control (CNC).
Note: Cut-to-cut cycle time improvement will be apparent on all jobs, with the most significant productivity improvements achieved on nests using thin plate with a high part / pierce count.
When purchasing a new cutting table be sure to ask about cut-to-cut cycle time. Some cutting table manufacturers are able to deliver similar results using their own CNC, THC, and nesting software products combined with Hypertherm plasma systems.
