The HPR260XD combines fast cutting speeds, rapid process cycling, quick changeovers, and high reliability to maximize productivity, and is now available with new patent-pending True Hole technology.

Operating Data
  • Virtually dross free cutting capacity - mild steel 32 mm (1 1/4")
  • Production pierce capacity - mild steel 38 mm (1 1/2")
  • Maximum cutting capacity (edge start) - mild steel 64 mm (2 1/2")
  • HyPerformance Plasma HPR260XD is a 260-amp system that delivers the virtually dross-free cut quality of HyDefinition, but does it with greater consistency, faster cut speeds, longer consumable life and half the operating cost.

* Note: Take care in comparison: competitors often show maximum cutting speeds rather than speeds that deliver the best
   cuts, as shown above. Cut speeds listed above deliver best cut quality, but cut speeds can be up to 50% faster.
