The Hornet HD CNC plasma cutter is the most cost-effective plasma table on the market.

The Hornet HD CNC plasma cutter delivers maximum productivity, helping you get more done in less time. The Hornet HD includes a Hypertherm PC based CNC control, heavy-wall steel tubing machine frame and gantry beam, precision ground linear rails on both the X & Y axis, powerful AC servo motors and low back-lash planetary gear boxes. The gantry beam and cross axis carriage ride on precision ground linear tracks to deliver premium motion control and accuracy.

Hornet HD Plasma Cutter CNC table cutting machineThe Hornet HD features the Hypertherm XPR Series power source, which includes the unmatched precision of True Hole™, the elimination of secondary processing provided by True Bevel™ technology, with increased productivity and slashed operating costs from the advanced cut speed of the XPR300™.

Hornet HD Cutting Sizes

The Hornet HD CNC plasma machine is available in 5.0′ (1.5 m) , 6.6′ (2.0 m), 8.2′ (2.5 m) and 10.0′ (3.0 m) effective cutting widths. Plasma tables are available with 12′ (3.7 m), 20′ (6.1 m) or 24′ (7.3 m) effective cutting lengths.
