What is True Hole Technology?
Hypertherm’s patent pending True Hole cutting technology produces significantly better hole quality than what has been previously possible with plasma. This technology was developed for mild steel from thicknesses ranging from gauge to 1” (25mm). True Hole has been optimized from a 1:1 to a 2:1 (diameter to thickness) ratio.
True Hole Technology has been optimized for mild steel only; therefore, it does not provide any benefits for stainless steel or aluminum.
What are the Benefits of True Hole Technology?
- Delivers “bolt-ready” quality holes automatically and with minimal operator intervention
- Virtual elimination of hole taper that is typical of plasma cut holes
- Ding is reduced and biased to the outside of the hole providing bolt clearance
- Dross is still present, though it can be easily removed
