The big brother of the MACRO STORM, the MACRO THUNDER is also built just as tough! Its fully cast body makes it super sturdy and eliminates any body movement that may affect the cut quality. 

The dual gantry system, paired with servo motors (an upgraded component from the QUANTUM + X-TREME models) provides exceptional stability and smooth movement, significantly reducing any clean-up, giving you sharp and clean cuts.

The MACRO THUNDER comes standard with a Scribe attachment, allowing you to mark the surface of the medium, most commonly used to name or number the cut pieces, it is also widely used to create marks for fabricators down the production line, to ensure that pieces meet in certain areas, or indicate where welds should go, or where additional componentry should be placed e.g. taps.

Best suited to businesses who are planning on doing large amounts of cutting and looking for a commercial-grade machine that provides smooth and consistent cuts every time, like structural engineering. 

We have customers from all industries cutting with the power and precision that the MACRO THUNDER has to offer... just to mention a few areas of application from our current customers, metal fabricators, shed manufacturers, machine engineering, food machinery production and general production... and much more! 

Delivering premium cut quality, the MACRO THUNDER can pierce up to 25mm thick at a speed of up to 12,000mm per minute, with superior 1:1 hole ratio and cuts so clean they look like they were cut by a laser!  

Capable of cutting a variety of materials - including, but not limited to; mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass, zinc + much more!

It can even cut corrugated metals and mesh!

The High-Definition system is provided by Kjellberg a German engineered and manufactured precision piece of machinery.

Packed with industry-leading technology this machine is definitely a cut above the rest (pun intended). Some of the system's unique features are:

Contour Cut - A technology developed specifically for cutting small contours, narrow webs and small holes with 1:1 precision, and achieves this with an increased cutting speed of up to 50%, and provides a super clean cut edge.  

Comparison Contour Cut and competition


Silent Cut - This significantly reduces noise pollution. Providing users a solution for one of the most common workplace hazards, by reducing the sound level by up to a massive 15dB(A) - As a gauge to the human ear, a reduction of just 10dB(A) is perceived as halving the volume.

HiFinox - This technology is used for the cutting of Stainless Steel and Aluminium ranging from 1-6mm in thickness. The result is brighter cuts and narrower kerfs, meaning you save time and money by reducing clean-up time and also reducing material wastage.
Another benefit is due to the unique design of the cathodes for this technology, the cathodes last 5 to 10 times longer than standard ones, reducing your investment in consumables.
