Hypertherm, Inc. (Hanover, NH), a U.S.-based manufacturer of plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting systems, has announced a new market manager for its operations in Mexico, naming Takeshi Yamamoto to the role.

Yamamoto brings an extensive knowledge of the welding and cutting industry having served as both a technical service and product applications engineer for Hypertherm, and previously a mechanized cutting expert and welding applications engineer for Praxair, one of North America’s largest welding and gas distribution companies. In addition, he is responsible for leading the expansion of Hypertherm’s waterjet and integrated cutting solutions business within Mexico.

Its product line includes plasma, laser and waterjet cutting systems, in addition to CNC motion and height controls, CAM nesting software, and consumables.

The New Hampshire based company’s reputation for cutting innovation dates back nearly 50 years to 1968, with Hypertherm’s invention of water injection plasma cutting.
