Hypertherm, a US-based manufacturer of plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting systems and software, announced its selection as the ‘Top Cutting Brand’ in a new survey of steel service center executives. The survey, administered by Metal Center News magazine, includes all methods of cutting including oxyfuel, plasma, and laser.
The final ranking is an indication of which brands command the largest share of mind, and highest levels of customer satisfaction. In conducting the survey, Metal Center News asked participants to select the brands they would endorse and buy from in the future. In addition to cutting, service center executives also ranked products in the coil processing, sawing, and material handling categories.
This year’s selection of Hypertherm comes just weeks after the introduction of the company’s newest cutting technology, the XPR300™ with X-Definition™ Plasma. This new class of plasma, considered Hypertherm’s most significant plasma advance ever, combines engineering advances and refined high-definition plasma processes to deliver top plasma cut quality on mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminium.
“We are honoured that steel service centres think so highly of Hypertherm and our products and services to rank us number one,” said Jeff Deckrow, Vice President of Hypertherm North America. “We know the landscape is very competitive and understand the pressures many of our customers are facing which is why we are committed to developing products that help companies reduce their cutting costs while improving performance and throughput.”
