Training + Operation

To get the most out of your PLASMATIC™, you have to be an expert on your machine. That’s why we’ve designed PLASMATIC™ to be user-friendly and we’ve created a repository of online resources to guide you through the ins and outs of your machine. Use our interactive syllabus to gain access to training materials, including video tutorials, how-to guides, and detailed instructions and specifications that tell you everything you need to know about your machine.


The PLASMATIC™ “air” plasma cutting table is designed to be user-friendly and highly accessible, and that includes the installation. Our plug-and-play installation process ensures you don’t have to wait for a technician to get your machine up and running. With a few simple steps, you can install your machine yourself and start cutting the same day.

Your PLASMATIC™ machine comes off the truck ready to use, but there are a few external considerations for you to keep in mind as you’re getting ready to set up. Be sure to consider the following as you prepare:

  • The Hypertherm Power Supply has specific power and gas requirements.
  • Consult your Operator Manual to see what you need.
  • The compressed air components need a clean, dry, and oil-free environment to function properly and for safety purposes.
  • A grounding rod must be installed within 20 ft of the cutting table.

Once you have checked these pre-installation boxes, you’re ready to unload your PLASMATIC™ machine and start cutting.
