Hi all, thanks for adding me !!๐Ÿ˜€
I have a hypertherm 45 cnc in Ireland and thinking about upgrading to xp. Has anyone here done this, and if so is it worth it. Thanks in advance!!

Welcome! I personally do not have a 45 or 45XP but know guys with the XP and apparently its night and day better than the 45.

An easy way to see if the cut speeds are higher with the xp vs the 45 is to compare cut charts. I believe that you can convert to a duramax torch and take advantage of the xp consumables. Might save you some money.
