Hypertherm introduces first for waterjet industry with HyPrecision predictive maintenance pumps
Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of industrial cutting systems and software, introduces the industry’s first predictive maintenance waterjet pumps to substantially reduce maintenance costs and disruption caused by non-planned service.
This new generation of pumps — called HyPrecision Predictive — are equipped with features such as Hypertherm’s proven Advanced Intensifier Technology and new patented technologies like closed loop proportional pressure control that adjusts for pressure and temperature, oil viscosity, and hydraulic system wear parts; along with technology that enables customers to use seals up to 40 percent longer.
In addition to technologies to increase performance and reduce system downtime, the HyPrecision Predictive pumps are designed with ease of service in mind. Features such as a color-coded junction box, electrical cable harnesses, quick-disconnect fittings, and an easy access bleed-down valve all make maintenance faster and less expensive.
HyPrecision Predictive systems are also designed with safety in mind. A clear window cover lets the operator see the intensifier and attenuator. Optional electrical interlocks prevent unauthorized access and can automatically stop the pump when opened. Finally, Seal Maintenance Technology™ helps keep the top deck and shop floor free of oil and water.
“In engineering this system, we worked to really understand the pain points that companies using waterjet face. Without question, the number one issue was surprise system downtime,” explains John Caron, waterjet product marketing manager. “Our new HyPrecision Predictive systems are engineered to eliminate that pain point, while delivering increased productivity and performance, improved serviceability and safety, and lower maintenance costs.”
Hypertherm HyPrecision Predictive pumps are available now in six different models, ranging from 15 to 75 horsepower.
