Hypertherm plasma and automation

From the introduction of water injection plasma in 1968 to today’s smart torches and X-Definition™ plasma, we expand the boundaries of what people can do when cutting flat plate and 3D shapes. Our CNCs and torch height controls help deliver optimized machine automation allowing you to cut more parts in less time with fewer people.

OMAX waterjet

Delivering best-in-class cutting performance through industry-leading, easy-to-use software optimized for the waterjet cutting process and efficient pump technology that extends maintenance intervals for maximum uptime. Our versatile systems extend the capability of our customers’ operations, giving them the flexibility to cut any material.


ProNest® brand software improves finished part quality, optimizes machine motion, and maximizes material usage, while our Robotmaster® software is changing the way companies program robots through the use of offline CAD/CAM programming, rather than the traditional teach method.


Our technology and manufacturing advantages extend to our Centricut® and AccuStream™ brand of consumables for non-Hypertherm laser and waterjet cutting systems.

  • AccuStream engineers and manufactures high quality replacement parts that meet or exceed OEM performance and quality, while offering expert support and fast service for every major brand of waterjet available today.

  • Centricut brand products are precision manufactured to exacting standards with patented technologies that enable owners of CO2 and fiber laser systems to enjoy the same quality as OEM parts at a lower cost.



Our brands of plasma, waterjet, software, and more are divided into four distinct businesses: Hypertherm plasma, OMAX waterjet, the Hypertherm Associates Software Group, and the Hypertherm Associates Aftermarket Group.
