Hypertherm, an advanced cutting system manufacturer, is gearing up for the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2016 where it will showcase live demonstrations of its technologies.

The US-based business will offer live waterjet cutting with its HyPrecision pump and PowerDredge abrasive removal system, along with comparative cutting displays and demonstrations of its ProNest 2017 and Robotmaster robotic software.

Hypertherm will also be offering the Build It! Challenge for mechanically-minded students, in conjunction with fellow cutting machine manufacturer WARDJet. In the contest, the teams will compete to build a working waterjet cutting system in order to win a waterjet for their school’s machining lab.

Additionally, and as part of the official IMTS educational programme, Hypertherm’s Automation leader, Peter Brahan, and the company’s Robotic Software team leader, Chahe Bazmakjian, will demonstrate a new wave of robotics in manufacturing is growing from advances in programming.


IMTS is one of the largest industrial trade shows in the world and takes place from 12th-17th September this year at the McCormick Place convention centre in Chicago.
