Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of industrial cutting systems and software, has announced the release of Rotary Tube Pro 3, a major version update of its tube and pipe cutting software for machines with a rotary axis. This new release contains new features and enhancements making it easy to design and cut tube parts.
These features include common line cutting which allows operators to cut two or more parts so that they share at least one common line with one another. This provides greater material utilisation and better consumable life. Costing for parts, nests and jobs to include factors such as consumable wear, machine operating cost, labour costs and electricity.
Another feature is auto-select of material so operators can enter basic material descriptions in settings and automatically map to available materials. With this feature, operators no longer need to separately pick a material and thickness once a tube size and wall thickness is selected.
“With Rotary Tube Pro 3 we’ve responded to our customer base with features and enhancements that we believe take a big step forward,” explained Steve Bertken, Product Manager for Hypertherm CAD/CAM software products.
“With common line cutting, users now have the ability to completely eliminate scrap between parts, potentially reducing their material costs and achieving better overall efficiency.”
