The Operator Control System is an industrial grade touch screen computer that is both powerful and easy to use. It features the most advanced windows based operating systems on the market.
Hypertherm’s versatile plasma systems have been designed and built for maximum efficiency and productivity for x-y cutting, chamfering and robotics operations. Combined with the Fanuc robot arm, it produces perfect bolt holes with no taper.
The Infeed and Outfeed Conveyors ensure precise and quick positioning of the material. They are manufactured of 4" heavy duty rollers mounted on pillow-blocks on solid heavy duty welded frame. A motor that is located in the central unit drives the conveyor rollers.
Our custom Photo-Laser Measuring Device is unique to the industry allowing automatic splitsecond profiling and positioning of your piece and guarantees the most precise cut possible.
Our mobile measuring ensures continuous monitoring of the piece length by moving along the infeed conveyor following the piece. Its special design makes up to 2x more precise than other measuring devices.
The safety enclosure is state of the art. It serves to delimit the space reserved for robotic cutting and the circulation area around the system. Our safety latch work envelope door allows for easy access and will shut the machine down if opened during production. In addition, an air outlet with a market leading 4250 CFM blower makes it possible to extract the smoke (dust collector not included - optional) and prevents health risks associated with plasma smoke. The safety cabinet complies with OSHA and Canadian safety standards and may help lower insurance costs.
