WHAT IS PLASMA CUTTING? 

Plasma is a electrically conductive, ionised, gas-like substance.


Plasma can be generated by using either compressed air or gas (e.g. Nitrogen or Argon) that is subjected to intense heat. When this is pressurised a plasma stream is created.


Plasma cuts via thermal transfer which means it uses heat to melt the metal instead of mechanically cutting it.

HIGH PERFORMANCE FEATURES 

HIGH QUALITY PRECISION MOTORS

All our motors have high holding torque ability. This provides an exceptional capability for the motor to maintain its original position.


The motor's also have a greater ability and incredible precision to return to their original position after completing a full detour. This ability makes them more reliable for accurate machining cutting, reducing production down time.


Brushless construction assists in providing a higher power output, they have a wider range of operating speeds and are very quiet; having no electrical contacts like traditional motors means that wear is very minimal, proving a great advantage in reliability and ease of ongoing maintenance.

AUTOMATIC TORCH HEIGHT CONTROL

All our plasma machines are produced with automatic torch height control systems.


This ensures that the torch stays at the same height during the entire cutting process, providing a greater cut consistency and enabling cutting on undulating surfaces like corrugated iron.

This feature also assists in prolonging the life of your consumables and helps to provide a cleaner cut quality.

HEAVY DUTY CONSTRUCTION

All our machines are made to stand the test of time.


Fully welded joins rather than bolted together components, ensure little to no movement of the bed when you are cutting, resulting in a superior cut every time.


Our tables are also made of Mild-Steel construction, again ensuring little to no flex in the body, contributing to that premium MACRO finish on every cut.


All machines use steel gantry rails to contribute to the heavy-duty construction, no need to worry about broken belts and potential down time.


FAQ

Most frequently asked questions

WHAT IS THE POWER SOURCE?
remove
add

We offer a range of solutions in both single & three phase.

CAN YOU CUT UNDERWATER?
remove
add

Yes, all our plasma CNC machines can cut underwater, and provides a cleaner cut.


This is a good option to look at is you cut a lot of Stainless-Steel and can also prevent warping on certain materials.

WHAT SOFTWARE DO THEY USE?
remove
add

All our plasma CNC machines use Aussie based FastCam.


A family-based business founded in 1976, with over 20 patents in progress in Steel processing in the US, France, Germany, Poland, and other countries, it’s safe to say these guys know their stuff!

We put our money where our mouth is and back all our tables with an industry standard 3-year warranty on our tables.

Our range of MACRO plasma cutters are backed with an industry leading 5-year warranty!


These warranties are all standard to give you peace of mind, with no additional hidden costs.

HOW ARE FUMES EXTRACTED?
remove
add

Our entire CNC plasma range uses exclusively waterbeds as a fume extraction method.

The use of waterbeds for fume control are highly effective in trapping the fume, they are also much cheaper to run in two ways; one- there are no fans constantly running so no massive power bills, and two - Lower upfront costs as there is not a massive amount of additional machinery and infrastructure required.


Will it rust out?

Some other companies try and scare tactic you into buying larger equipment you don’t need so they can turn a bigger profit by saying water tables will rust.


Truth is, if you look after your table and use the recommended additives, your table will never let you down, and our team can give you a full run down of this.


This argument is a bit like saying, going to go to a dentist daily is your only way to prevent cavities - it’s expensive and unnecessary as we all know if you brush & floss daily and have good oral hygiene you will be just fine. 🦷👌🏻

CAN PLASMA MARK?
remove
add
Yes, they can mark & scribe materials as well as cut.
HOW MUCH DOES PLASMA COST?
remove
