Cutting Controller Boasts Improved Connectivity, FunctionalityNovember 1, 2011
From Hypertherm, Hanover, NH, comes the MicroEdge Pro sheetmetal-cutting CNC, outfitted with the firm’s latest Phoenix Version 9 control software. Building on the combined strengths and successful history of the MicroEdge and Edge Pro CNCs, the new model delivers customizable performance for a range of cutting applications.
Advances with Phoenix Version 9 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 proprietary Hypernet communication, which quickly allows connectivity between the CNC, ArcGlide torch-height control and HyPerformace plasma or HyIntensity FiberLaser, through use of an Ethernet cable. All necessary cutting-process parameters can be embedded in the customer part program in the CAM software, reducing setup times while eliminating common process errors and improving productivity.Hypertherm, Inc.: 603/643-3441; www.hypertherm.com
